“Black Mamba” by Cannonball Custom Cycles


The Black Mamba

The Black Mamba was found at a impound yard in Sacramento by my friend John. It had some pretty questionable wiring including a toggle switches from a oven, now thats custom.
He brought the bike to the shop and I got to work, striping it down to just the frame and removing all unwanted tabs and brackets.


Then I built a battery box into the frame where the stock airboxes go. Took the stock wheels and had them blasted and powder coated black, Then got a fiberglass Norton tank and made that fit as well as a cafe style rear section and seat.



I got the dual exhaust tips from mikes xs and some rear sets from TCbros. The handlebars are clip ons with a mini speedo and tach to top it off. This was the first cafe bike that I have built and it was a fun bike to build and a fun bike to ride.

    Good job! I really enjoy seeing the custom cafes’ and trackers’, of all sorts.

  2. Gig III says:

    Great looking cafe. Simple and understated, but I bet the Ton-up people will love it.

  3. Ryan says:

    Thanks a lot. If the ton up guys liked it that would be a huge complement. they build real nice cafe’s.

  4. Bryan says:

    Great job! I’m thinking after my bobber is done I’m gonna build a cafe/street tracker.
    Where is that mirror from? I like the way it mounts to the end of the handlebars.

    They are alot of fun to ride. That mirror I found on ebay, they come in a set for like $30
