Vince’s Honda CL350

This beautifully detailed 1972 Honda CL350 is built by Vince Green of 71 Custom Motorcycles. When Green bought the Honda it looked mint, so he hadn’t planned to┬ádo a full build, but he says, “While on the face of it the bike looked very, very good, once I started taking things apart, there was 47 years of grime.” He broke down the bike into pieces and built it back up in his vision using 3D-printed parts of his own design, including the┬áminimalist carbon-fiber mudguard that tucks under the subtly duckbilled tail section. Green is most proud of his rattle can, two-tone paint job, finished with a high-gloss clear coat, and he says, “After 4 months and 250 hours in my shed I have a bike that is great fun to ride and looks pretty decent, too.”
