    Anyone into motorcycles? My '76 CB360 build

    Anyone else here into motorcycles and specifically rebuilding older bikes? I finally reached a point yesterday where my build is "done", for now. I still have a lot of work left to do, but it's ridable now. Ill post a condensed version of my build here for fun.

    As picked up in Warren, IN:




    Color matched side covers...weren't so color matched after all:


    Installing new clubman handlebars and redoing the wiring:


    Installing rearset controls:


    Remember those side covers? Ya, let's fix that:


    Much better:


    New exhaust...MAC 2-1:


    Making a cafe seat. Reused a spare CB360 seat pan and cut off the back half of a CB360 gas tank.


    Cowl stripped of paint and test fit:


    Took seat to upholsterer:


    Got a small powdercoating setup:


    And put it to work!




    Custom Dash:






    New paint:


    Chopped rear fender:


    Finally back together:








    Anywho, that's how it sits for now. Ill be rebuilding the engine (2MM overbore, GS850 pistons, and bumping it to a 378cc. Anyone else into older bikes? Post up if so!

    I'm not really into motorcycles, but I just wanted to give you some big kudos for your work on that bike. Looks great.

    A colleague of mine has an old CB500 Four and I have offered to buy it from him half a dozen times.

    I had a 1980 CM400 when I was in high school. Right now I have an 07 VTX 1300. Love it.

    Go up to Mid-Ohio this weekend! It's the HUGE Vintage Motorcycle Days. Also, while the 500F was a nice engine, the 550F was a HUGE improvement. Keep your eye out for one of those, of the CB400F SuperSport.

    Just picked this up:



    1979 Suzuki GS750N. Single owner, mint condition, 20k miles. This will slowly be restored, likely to a concours finish. My wife's excited that I finally have a bike she can ride with me on!
