Honda CB350 by Benjie’s Café Racers

Honda CB350 cafe racer
This is Benjie Flipprboi’s ‘El Poquito’, or ‘little one’. It started out as a 1969 Honda CB350 and ended up as a lightweight, vintage-style café racer inspired by the gorgeous Matchless G50. Note the new tank, long and narrow, with knee indents. And the short and simple seat, adding to the stretched look. The clip-ons are stainless steel, and the battery’s been relocated nearer the swing arm, to give the bike a lower center of gravity. The rear sets are (conveniently) mounted where the passenger pegs used to be. Then Benjie de-tabbed, cleaned up, re-welded and powdercoated the frame. The finishing touch is a high-set, 2-into-1 stainless steel exhaust with a dummy pea tip.
