This little Honda is perfect definition of a UJM Restomod. UJM stands for Universal Japanese Motorcycle. And Honda changed the world when they launched their CB series. This particular 360 is a smaller, 2 cylinder brother of the CB-Fours. And what grabbed my attention – is how clean and simple this build is.
If You look at the photos – You can see some dents and scratches. It’s not a “show bike”, You can see it rides. It’s not a full conversion to any class – neither a brat nor a cafe racer. What You see here is a super simple and stylish restomod. Only what was needed was improved – the rest was left original… as the original looks awesome even when it’s stock. The speedo and tacho setup – clean, small and simple. Spoked wheels just needed some fresh rubbers. Paint-job sticks with the original schema.
What was upgraded: front end was swapped (for USD forks with big twin disc brakes), clip-ons, smaller seat, and some more prominent rear shocks. Stock airbox and carbs – with custom new exhaust (with a Supertrapp muffler). And obviously, the lighting (small headlight, stop light and turn signals) is new, but still chosen to fit the style of a motorcycle.
And it looks brilliant.
