The Backburner / 012
1976 Honda CB360T
This bike originally belonged to an ex-girlfriend. It was acquired as a basket-case project in the early days of Federal Moto and she was a rider and professional designer/fabricator herself. As these things tend to go, the relationship with the girlfriend eventually ended, but our relationship with the CB360, now formally in our hands, had only just begun.
Although that particular relationship spanned a couple years, once the dust settled it took only four months to transform the bike into the neat little street tracker you see here... so it’s earned the nickname ‘The Backburner.’
