About the Owner:
Welcome to The Smokey Dogs. Cameron Sault is the founder of Sault Built and has a story to tell. He is a deaf builder who loves the smell of metal and gasoline. His interesting and unique visions drive him to create custom and one-of-a-kind projects by hand. Each unique and thoughtful idea he has comes together through this rare and exclusive medium. His most prized projects include mostly sculptures and motorcycles, but he often finds himself experimenting with other various forms of expression when the idea is unraveling. Every project he creates is indicative of his creative approach to life, and his zest for artistic expression.
Sault Built’s vision is to always create something new and unique. It’s all about the design and keeping things simple, but tasteful.
About Honda CX500 Cafe Racer:
Since the opening of the Sault Built Garage in 2014, Cam has worked on some creative projects that would hardly allow him to leave the garage. So, enough of it. Let’s talk motorcycles! Since Cam found this grim 1980 Honda CX500 bike in the tiny shed (which had been sitting there for a little more than a decade), he immediately bought it without a second thought. He had a great vision for this bike building and wanted to turn it into a mix of brat and café Racer
From the front to the end he cut the gauges, the handlebar clamp, the rear section, the airbox, the battery holder and the two fenders. Once the CX was ” naked, ” he had to sit down and remember every part of the floor and table, giving him more ideas for the construction.
He ended up chopping the fender making it shorter, hand-built a rear fender with a microstrip LED light underneath the rear fender, hand – built front, and back micro LED signal lights, added a hand-built battery box with an 8-cell antigravity battery underneath of the bike which you may see in the photo, and hand – built mini fairing just above the headlight system.
Installed Clip-bars, speedo, LED headlight, new suspension, front tire (Avon Speedmaster), rear tire (Firestone Deluxe Champion), pod airs, Triple K Upholstery ‘s custom solo seat.
