What's between a CL350 scrambler and a CX500 cafe racer.
When it comes to comparing Honda bikes, we know we're going to have a tough choice to make.
This is a battle of contrasts between the clean bones and smooth leather seat of the CL350 scrambler against the brutality of the CX500 cafe racer.
Restored by Slipstream Creations of St. Louis, Missouri, the scrambler arrived at the studio with a Tupperware in the place of its light, showing that this machine had seen some rough days.
The entire structure of the CL350 underwent restoration. The front gained striking colors, the seat was replaced by a piece made of leather, and it said goodbye to the Tupperware over the headlight.
With a completely opposite look, Harry Blaise Fryer's brutal cafe racer has always been a dream. He got the bike he always wanted from Jackson Motorcycles in London, but the initial work wasn't easy, as the bones of the original bike were in dire need of a glow-up.
The new big wheels brought the power Fryer was looking for, as did the fully custom curvy front end. The seats are matte leather, finished with dark gray diamond stitching.
This is the best of both worlds.
