This Café Racer started its life as a 1970 Honda CL350.  The goal of the project was to create a motorcycle that appeared to have survived unrestored from the heyday of café racers in the 60’s and 70’s.     All Photos   ©   Caleb Tkach
 By sourcing used vintage parts and distressing new components, this motorcycle appears to have been found after sitting neglected for decades when in reality it was only completed a couple of years ago. 
 After stripping the bike down to an engine and frame, a 1966 Wards Riverside tank was fitted along with a vintage scooter headlight, Tarozzi rear sets, Tarozzi clip ons, an MAC exhaust, and a custom fiberglass seat. 
 The tank retains its original patina while the rest of the body components were painted and weathered to match.  
  Building a motorcycle with a focus on simplicity and weight savings has created a dynamic riding experience that harkens back to the historic café racers of the past.
