Jan Sallings’ 1973 Honda 350 Restomod
For the uninitiated, restomodding is the art of restoring a classic vehicle while simultaneously customizing it and keeping its original character intact. Jan Sallings built this one with very little outside assistance and the result is one of the most beautiful old Hondas you’ll ever see. The frame has been cleaned up, of course, and you can clearly see that whatever isn’t a very bright red is bare gleaming metal, but the less obvious touches are what make this bike so brilliant. Those two golden pieces of metal on the exhaust? Heat shields to protect the rider from otherwise inevitably burned legs.
