Moto Madness CB350 Cafe Racer 15 October 16

Nicholas Schmidt of Moto Madness Customs says their main goal is to provide customers with the products they are looking for at great prices and unbeatable customer service. Their main focus is on the DIY type of rider, who isn't afraid to get their hands dirty on their sportbike, vintage motorcycle or custom build. Not only do they sell the items, but they have used most of them and are there to answer any questions you might have.

This is the Moto Madness 1972 Honda CB350 Custom Cafe Racer project. The bike was built and debuted for the 2014 Barber Vintage Motorcycle Races & Festival and then the IMS Ultimate Bike Build-off. It started life out as a rusted, beat up non running bike that was pulled out of some guys backyard. Some of the mods include a custom tail section with a handmade fiberglass seat. The rear suspension was converted to a monoshock design with a custom YSS made shock.
