With the ever increasing popularity of the cb350 platform lending itself to the culture of simplicity, this 350 I believe is our best simplified version yet. I have said before and still maintain a belief that riding a small and relatively underpowered motorcycle as hard and as fast as possible is often the most noteworthy and memorable two wheeled experience that one can have. This 350, endearingly named after the chap that has commissioned three custom Kott builds, is no exception to this unspoken rule.
The stance of this machine is predominantly defined by the use of the under appreciated CB350 four fuel tank. As a proprietary approach, a custom seat was then fabricated to match and complement the fuel tank selection. The pressed steel frame of the cb350 can present some fitment challenges when taking a custom approach but the hand made nickel plated rearsets fit directly into the original passenger peg plate location, got lucky with that one! Polished aluminum Excel wheels and stainless spokes brought a much needed aesthetic fullness to the bottom half of this petite machine. Suspended with the original front exposed springs and custom Works rear shocks this bike handles as great as it looks! With a timeless gloss black paint scheme and custom ivory white striping, immaculate Mikuni carbs and a completely electronic ignition unit I believe that a new plateau has been reached with the café inspiration of this little buzz box. So much fun to ride! That is what this is all about.
