My seat came last week so I got the itch to do some frame work. I cut off all the extra tabs and rear end, and grinded down all the welds flush. She cleans up nicely :)

Now I'm figuring out placement of my electronics. I decided to ditch the HID setup, because of all the extra ballasts  it requires, and go with Spark Moto's LED headlight instead.

I've figured out how I'm generally going to mount the seat but I have to figure out the specifics. Basically I want something that doesn't require anything flimsy like Velcro and doesn't use nuts that I have to keep track of every time I take the seat off. I found a great solution and will share when I can get it mocked up.

Here's a photo as she sits today...

I use a 'flat' 'Z' shaped piece for front mount and hook it under tank mounting. At rear, 6mm bolts through original rear fender mounting

Got my wheels buttoned up today. Tires mounted and balanced and rear hub put back together with new shoes. The front tire went on without any issues. The rear tire gave me a hell of a time and, even with rim protectors, I ended up scratching my newly finished rims. So I ended up having a local shop mount the rear tire. Lesson learned.

I really liked those Conti's back in the day.
In fact, I liked them so much I got a set for my project (as yet unseen but may end up on 'the runner' ;D )

I got my head, cylinders and Pistons back from the machinist a couple weeks ago but hadn't provided an update. I was planning on painting them but they look so good now that I want to leave them bare. The head was fully rebuilt, the exhaust ports were opened up, and the cylinders were bored out for  gs850 Pistons.

For future reference, Kibblewhite makes oversized valves for the CB350 that fit just fine in a 360.
I went with +1mm over for my exhaust valves.

I'm actually still using the stock valves. he just matched the ports to the gasket size. Apparently he smoothed out some casting/machining imperfections in the intake ports as well for no extra charge

I use stock valves but would like to get 1mm OS intakes. (but every time I have some cash something more important comes along)
The exhausts are just about perfect size even though they look too small

Finished my oil modifications last night.

1. Drilled out upper crank case oil passages
2. Opened up the oil filter exit passage with a dremel.
3. Previously drilled holes in the inner clutch basket

I've been a busy bee lately but have not been posting my progress. I guess I'm having too much fun

I decided to buy a welder so I can do my frame work. My first welder and first time mig welding. I have a lot of learning to do!



Fabricated a bunch of stuff
Seat mounting system
Electronics tray
Battery box
Rear seat hoop

I'm especially proud of how I decided to mount the seat. No bolts to deal with. I used a quick-latch http://www.quik-latch.com/black-anodized-mini-quik-latch.html so all I need to do is press a button to release the seat. And just have to snap the seat down to secure it.  I got all my metal tabs from A&A Manufacturing. They were super helpful and even made me custom tabs for no extra charge!

I ended up going with a BikeMaster tru gel battery. They don't have a lot of cranking amps but I don't have an electric start so I think it should be sufficient. Way cheaper than those ballistic batteries. And not so finicky.




The black circle in the center of the electronics tray is the button for the seat latch





Like I said, my welding leaves a lot to be desired. But it's getting better. I keep practicing on any scrap I can find. Practice makes perfect right?
