The main objective of Kott Motorcycles is to simplify and bring functionality back into antiquated machines. This beautiful rebuild’s donor bike, a 1969 CB 350, has a rebuilt stock displacement motor that runs like a solid CB 350 should. Kott Motorcycles fitted the fuel tank from a late 70’s Suzuki for a larger capacity. They also constructed the seat in the Kott Motorcycles style, using round bar and sheet steel. The oversized tank is in scale with the small tail section, as a throwback to the famed T.T. Manx racers.
A 4 1/2″ Italian-made CEV headlight was used, in order to appropriate the smaller stature of the machine, as well as to facilitate a downsized speedometer. Next they extended the individual exhaust pipes, to create a more angular, aggressive exhaust stance.
The speedometer runs off the original speedo cable, which is all housed in a handmade headlight fairing. It’s a colorful aesthetic approach that improves the looks of the original. Plus, the powder-coated black wheels have been fitted with stainless spokes and polished hubs, which bring new life to the rolling chassis.
