Take two Honda 360’s. Rebuild motor, brakes, forks, carbs, swingarm with combination of parts from two said bikes. Custom fit Benelli fuel tank. Grind off any unwanted frame mounts and shorten frame by four inches. New bushings, bearings and rubber mounts all round. Get all new stainless hex bolts. Chop the front fender and send the rear one off to fender heaven.

Get wife to design and assist with fabricating new fiberglass seat pan…two up of course (what a woman!). Black powder the whole frame, forks, rims and fender and hi-temp black the engine. Ceramic coat the pipes and add heat shields to protect aforementioned wife’s legs.

Design and print custom vinyl decals for tank and speedo. Sneeze in to my hand and discover a great colour, add some metallic flake and have tank and headlight bucket painted to match. Put it all together and name it the SPARTAN CB360. Nice.
