It appears to be on an angled towards the hub, might have an issue clearing the tire, since it should really if anything be angled the opposite way. Had to do something similar on my last bike which is why I know.

Also got it sandblasted and the first (rough) coat of paint.




And the modified bracket again:


Not super thrilled with the weld still and I will probably fill those holes, but it's good enough for the bottom of the swing arm I guess  :-\

Did some more welding to prove to myself I'm not completely lame at welding..

So how am I going to trigger the brake light now that I cut the mount for the switch off?

Hopefully with one of the extra neat things I have in mind for this build.

I adjusted the bracket I cut off for the brake light switch to fit on the other side of the frame:


It's new job will be to hold the new proximity sensor for the brake lights:


The cool thing about this is that there won't be any moving parts or even contact of any kind... notice the clearance:


Part of the reason why I went this route is to clean up the outside of the frame... it's almost totally hidden from the side.



I will have to build a controller for this, but I was planning on doing that anyway. It has a pretty tight tolerance, so the brake light will engage relatively quickly once the pedal is pressed. Since this switch is normally closed, and opens when the pedal moves away, my plan is to use a pull-up pin that is activated in the up position - so when the switch is closed, the pin is low/grounded, and the brake lights come on. The benefit to this is that it will have a fail safe in that if the switch fails or the pedal doesn't line up for some reason, it will fail in the brake lights on position. I figure looking like I'm braking is better than actually braking with no brake lights.

Here's a video of the sensor in action - you can see the indicator light on the sensor turn on/off with the pedal movement.

Mate that's bloody awesome.  Had never thought of that.  Reminds me of the prix sensor on my 3D printer  :D

Thanks  :D

A few of the reviews on this sensor I got said it works great for their 3d printers ha.... not sure how long it will last on the motorcycle but I'm going to make it easy to change and probably coat it in something waterproof.



This is a hydraulic pressure switch - which doesn't work on a non-hydraulic, mechanical linkage brake system like the original rear drum brake on a CB360. It will work for the front brake though and will be the route I go if the original switch is broken or I can't find a place to put it.

No, it works on your front brake switch.  You don't need to a rear break switch when you have a front one.  Even the slightest pull powers the light.  Requires very little effort, and no welding to install.

Unfortunately, the previous owner put a cheap, universal forward foot rest on this bike...


And it ended up making some dents in the down tube  :(



So I'm just doing some prep before painting the frame to clean up the bits like this... and my grinding marks.



Still needs more work and I'm debating how much work is worth putting into this frame  ???
