'06 Stratoliner Midnight. Second owner. Purchased from original owner in San Antonio 3 years ago @ 11K miles. Was all original and complete as purchased with all documents, bill of sale, manual, etc...
After a few months started slowly started personalizing with small, tasteful additions including: removal of backrest and pax floorboards, Freedom True dual exhaust, ZR1 flame stitched seat, batwing fairing and tinted spoiler windscreen, gel grips and homemade license plate bracket. Maintenance I've performed since purchase: new tires, deep cycle gel battery, oil/filter, plugs, air cleaner and gear oil change. All by me in my shop except tires.
Bike gets lots of looks and the 2 most common questions are 1. What kind is it and 2. it's how big??
I even had a rider asked to have a photo taken with him on it.
Shown are before and after photos:

"Hell Bent For Leather" 1972 Honda CB350 custom built hardtail bobber. I built the hardtail for the frame without the help of a proper tubing bender. I used heat and a big spring. Motor was rebuilt with .25 over pistons, Starter deleted for kick only. It is covered in hand tooled leather. This little bike is a blast to ride and even more fun to show. It has won over 30 trophies from best of show to most unique. It was featured in Cycle Source Magazine in Dec. 2018. Not bad for a bike I found left laying in a field on its side for 10 years. The motor still turned over and those are the original rims. They were covered in a heavy grease.
