I had the chance to hang out with the fun loving, Ural sidecar riding, The Wilkinson Bros of the Good Spark Garage at the Mama Tried Motorcycle Show in Milwaukee.

Oh and did I mention that I got to check out their 1975 Honda CL360 scrambler build?

When a good friend comes to you and asks you to customize his bike, you make sure it’s good, real good, and that’s exactly what Casey and Corey Wilkinson did. The Wilkinson Bros worked on the bike from ground-up, converting it to a mono-shock, welding up a new subframe and swingarm, connected by a shock from a Ducati Monster 620, and built a new seat pan to house the electrical.

Despite all the customization and upgrades, the brothers maintained the aesthetics and the integrity of a 75’ Honda CL 360, leaving the true classic ‘scrambler sprit’ intact.

Other notable customizations include:

  • Bobbed fenders made from a portion of the existing front fender
  • Dirtbike footpegs and vintage-style MX handlebars and grips
  • New engine gaskets and stainless steel bolts; brush-finished and a fresh coat of satin high-heat black laid on the top and bottom end
  • Heat shield partially retained, cut to compliment the staggered Dime City Cycles Shorty mufflers
  • Custom Wilkinson Bros logo on the original tank, dressed in metallic paint
  • Custom seat pan and leather upholstery by Kent Auto Upholstery

The result? Voila
