CB350 Scrambler Siblings
« on: Mar 04, 2017, 10:00:32 »
The backstory:

 After the completion of my last CB350 "UpstateScrambler" (http://www.dotheton.com/forum/index.php?topic=68584), I was really fortunate to have it featured on several online publications. Following the features I began receiving daily email inquiries from people looking for their own. At first, I didn't want to build another scrambler. But, after some thinking, I decided that I would build three at the same time, and to my overall design specs. I sacrificed some of my own ideas to please the customer on my last build, and I didn't want to do that here. I would carry over the ideas that worked well on the last build, and re-design the things that didn't. I put the offer out there, and I had three new customers. (You can see the build offer on my website). Unfortunately, one customer had to back out. So I decided that two might just be a better idea anyways.

I managed to find these '70 and '71 CB350's to fit the bill.

The goal is to build the two bikes mechanically the same, but aesthetically different.

I started off refinishing some parts. Black powder coat and hand-polished.





Wheels were re-laced and received fresh bearings and brake shoes.

Next I knocked out some rear hoops to fit recessed LED tail lights.

Next up were subframes and shock mounts.

After that I turned my attention to the tanks. My original plan was a basic shaped steel tank like the UpstateScrambler.




But, then I decided that aluminum tanks with good rubber mounts would be a better product in the end. I decided to use thick .090" aluminum for durability, and add some knee dents for style. I used the same patterns, but no buck or gauges so each tank would be a little different.

I thought I'd share some plans for the bikes.

-Aluminum front fenders with heavy mounts for bracing.
-Aluminum side panels with indents for uni filters.
-Aluminum scrambler style seat pans.
-Custom 2-1 exhausts. One raw stainless/one black ceramic coated.
-Battery box and splash guards.
-New custom wire harnesses.
-Stainless headlight mounts.

Keep an eye out for a lot of progress on these over the next few weeks.
