Cerberus Motorcycles CL350
By Anthony van Someren - 07 Mar 13
HERE). This is their latest custom cafe/brat, based on a 1973 CL350. They picked the bike up from Craigslist in crates to rebuild and sell according to their own ideas, but three quarters of the way through the build a customer turned up so the bike started to change shape according to his wishes. The CL is a pretty sweet bike to start with, once you throw away all the heavy and ugly stuff, and the guys wanted to make it a simple build utilising as many stock parts as possible. They also decided to make it black, or at least various shades of black and off-black finishes, including Matt Black Hot Rod paint mixed with a little graphite - although the new owner did ask for a few chrome details and switched the original high pipes to low items.
The guys are really pleased with the end result (although they preferred the high pipes). She sits low but rides superbly and really smooth, geared for city use, which is where the new owner will be doing most of his riding.
See more from Cerberus Motorcycles and take a take a little time to read about David and Erik on their Website and Facebook pages. We hope to see more of their builds on The Bike Shed soon.
