the real wooden seat isn’t the most unusual thing about this particular ‘CB350’, in fact, it’s the cylinder head. the entire assembly has been spun around 180 degrees, meaning the carburetors sit at the front and the exhausts run directly out the back. a new cam had to be ground, oil lines needed to be rerouted, and the timing chain was adjusted. most of the ‘one’s’ metal work is made from titanium, and finished in with a layer of clear powder coat.

the ‘one’ also boasts a raft of conventional components, including a motogadget speedometer, LSL footpegs, a classic-styled EMD headlight, and a steering damper taken from a triumph ‘street triple’. the bike sits on a pair of ultra-slick veerubber tires at both ends.
