RD 350 Cafe Racer Project
This is one of our two RD350 projects built as a collaboration in 2009.
This is what we started with back in 2008. In retrospect we probably wouldn’t have started with something so rough but most of it ended up in the bin anyway so no big deal
A year and many bloody knuckles later we ended up with this RD (see, there’s hope for any turd). Over the next few weeks we’re going to post in excruciating detail some of the specifics of the build as sort of a how to if you’re so inclined guide.
Some posts from this bike we have coming down the pike include:
Benelli Mojave tank Conversion
XS650 dual disc setup
Cafe seat with frenched in tail light and hidden battery
Hydraulic clutch conversion
and last but not least Dest has promised to do a full post covering the fabrication of his amazing stainless steel pipes. He’s going to reveal all the balck magic and hoodoo that goes into building these monsters from start to finish. I should also mention that they are available for purchase now from Economy Cycle
