A few months ago I saw a “before” pic of Ruud’s Honda CL360 on Instagram and decided to follow him to see how it eventuated. I never imagined it would come out this good.
Ruud basically made the bike you see here and had a long, low slung exhaust with a reverse cone that was painted black. It looked good and most people would have stopped there…but not Ruud. He got to work on one of the sexiest exhausts I’ve ever seen.
Just to make us all jealous, Ruud says he made this in his parents garage over 5 saturdays!

“The Suzuki GS1000 was first made famous by Wes Cooley in the late 70’s superbike races.
You can follow “Allenpacino” on instagram where I first saw the pics.

I’ve been talking with Craig on and off for over a year, ever since he saw The Brat at the Perth Motorcycle Show in 2011. We talked about possibly rescuing his engine in his CB450 but nothing came of it. Then I started to see some pics of the beauty you see here pop up on instagram as Craig was building it.
To say I was blown away when I saw the finished product is an understatement. I gushed like a school girl meeting Justin Weiner (skip to 2:30 if you really must watch it). Check out more pics on Craigs Instagram, search “xwolfkvltx”
Here are a few words from Craig.
The idea for building this CB360 came about a year ago now, I am slowly building up another bike and didn’t want to rush it so the 360 was always just going to be a bike I could ride and have fun on in the mean time.
The bike was imported from Portland, USA in January of 2012. I got it running and registered it before starting the modifications.
Even though this bike was only ever meant to have a few slight modifications done so that it could be ridden almost immediately, I found myself with the engine out and the frame was being cut and modified. Trying to fit the build in between work was always an uphill battle but it finally all started coming together.
It has been finished for just over a month now and I haven’t been able to keep off of it, it’s just so much fun to ride.
Here is a list if what I’ve done to the bike…
The bike took me about 10 months to build all up with a few hiccups along the way but this is the first bike (WTF! That makes it even more impressive!) I have built so there were a lot of learning curves for me to make. I named it “little lucifer” because its small, red, loud and looks really aggressive.

Rasmus is the 39th most common name in Sweden. It comes from the viking spirit of the sea who is something of a trickster and either benevolent or malevolent. It seems that Rasmus is the same as every other god and is completely psychopathic.
What has that got to do with the bike you see here?
Not much, but it is the name of the Swedish dude who built it. I noticed the Kawasaki W650 on Instagram and asked for more pics. Unlike the mythical Viking god, Rasmus was a complete gentleman and sent me the great pics you see here.
I’ll let Rasmus tell his story…
