The CL450′s new home
So once the Art in Motion show ended the CL540 officially became the property of its new owner Forrest. Forrest has been involved in the build since day 1 and had a pretty specific look he wanted. He loved the style of “Rusty” Eric’s CB450 by Holiday Customs, but wanted it more rough and gritty. He wanted a bike that was bomber mechanically, but had the look of a bike that had been ridden hard. Forrest also rides dirt bikes so there was some scrambler style inspiration as well. The bike is finally done and here is the result:
He is super pumped on the end result and definitely got the look he was going for. In fact the bike looks so inspired to be ridden hard that we ended up having some serious fun during one of our tests! This bike is FUN to ride!!
Seeing the bikes new owner so pumped on the look makes months of work totally worth it. He was actually having so much fun riding it the morning of the show he ended up running out of time to wash it! Oh, and he was the one to volunteer to sleep in the studio to keep the bikes safe. We think maybe he just didn’t want to stop looking at his new ride! Here are a few or Forrest’s own iPhone shots he took over the weekend. Thanks again Forrest for letting us build you a bike and for enjoying it so fully!
