SL / CB350 Mash Up
« on: Aug 17, 2015, 12:50:17 »
I started my latest CB350 project this weekend. I wanted a dirt bike style bike. Something more than a CL. It's a 71 CB with SL350 triple tree, forks, and 21" front wheel. The forks are 4" longer than CB forks and they are 35mm instead of 33mm. The rear wheel axle mount was moved down 2.25" and back 3.5". The ground clearance was increased by 3".  I think it looks cool.  My phone ran out of memory so I just have this one picture so far.

The rear axle area isn't welded in the picture so you don't know what I did but enlighten me, what won't work?

What won't work about it?  Looks pretty simple to me.  I don't want an SL, I'm not a fan of their frames or how they look in general.

It would probably help your case to explain how you plan to move the rear axle. That way people can look at your plan and offer constructive criticism of your plan. Hard for us to have your vision when it's in your head ;)
I'm interested to see where this goes though.
