71 CB450 Urban Hooligan Tracker
« on: Jan 12, 2018, 15:46:36 »
I picked up a 71 CB450 last year and finally decided to start stripping it down to build a retro urban hooligan tracker. I have an idea of what I want it to look like. In the end when I am done with the build I will either sale the bike, raffle the bike off or donate it to The Fisher House Foundation for them to use in a charity event. Either way it goes all proceeds from the bike will be going to Fisher House Foundation. I look forward to searching these forums for help along the way. I will use this post to track my progress.  As this is all out of pocket for me with no sponsor ships looking to drag this out over the entire year of 2018. I have already done the swap to a 2003 GSXR 600 front end, removed the dents from the tank and primered, cut the rear end off the bike, detabbed the frame and light primer.

New top triple clamp with riser mount holes drilled from Cognito Moto ordered, Pro Taper Contour bars (CR High bend) and Pro Taper Pillow Top Lite grips ordered all on Friday of last week. Will be picking up the riser mount for the motoscope mini from Cognito Moto to fit the motoscope mini and motosign indicator lights in. Bars and grips will be here tomorrow no shipping info from Cognito Moto yet. ASV perches and levers along with original Honda bar switches will finish up the controls on the bars. Going to fabricate up a front facia (number plate style) with LED headlight assembly built in. Thinking of running M-Blaze turn signals up front and they will be what holds the number plate to the facia mounts.

What are the cons of doing the CB360 rear swinger swap?  Plan on using the CB360 rear swingarm and hub to have a 36 spoke wheel. Other than the swingarm being longer(think maybe a set of longer shocks can help with this) and the axle being smaller, what are the cons?
