    Looks really nice. Do you have any of the original parts left that you didn't use?

    No extra parts as I started with a 1972 SL 350 K1 chassis and a 1969 CB 350 Engine I had built for a road race project several years ago.
    The SL Chassis has been de-raked to 25 degrees at the steering head by Panther Racing Frames here in Canada.
    I've spent the last year and a half gathering new and used dirt track components.
    Used dirt track wheels, rear brake caliper all required rebuilding and custom fit to the frame.
    The forks are Can-Am 35 mm Betors - again refurbished. These required a custom made steering stem to fit them to the Honda frame and bearing sizes.

    Here is a photo of the road racer / street tracker the engine came out of ( which I posted here a few years ago ) I sold the rolling chassis to a local chap who is in the process of making a cafe racer.

    It's been a while, did a redo for 2019. Powder coated frame & S/Arm. New style flat track tires( Shinko), full 350 cc top end, El Lumpo Cam and a host of other little changes.
    First race is May 25.

    Is that a vague description, or is it the actual brand name?

    BTW, nice CR450 Honda stickers on the tank...

    Nice build, I like it! Mind sharing with us how you mounted the CB engine into that frame? Did you make custom spacers, or was it more involved than that? Also, what size rims and tires are you running?
