They are stock... Just not for a 350. Theyre for a cl160/175.

Oh ok, do you know if they fit 350 tanks? Or is that a 160/175 tank aswell?

Thats an early 350 tank, and Id bet that theyre just glued/epoxied on. The 350 tanks dont have the mounts for knee pads.

haha yes that is exactly the paint scheme I'm going for. I actually modeled most of my bike after that bike. Rick and his kids did a pretty amazing job with the build. I looked for hours and did dozens of mockups for different paint schemes but I liked the red and silver the most. Mine should be ready in about six weeks I hope.

Are you modeling your bike after the red and silver one as well?

Nice, You know them? Yeah thats deffinitely my favourite all around CB350, but im going with the blue silver scheme like the ducati i posted earlier. Youre lucky you only have to wait 6 weeks. The place im having it done at has bike parts from other guys that have been there a month already and havent even been touched yet  :-\

Some did. I think only some of the 69 models though. The tank i bought is exactly this one, and i took the rubbers off and it has mounts.

I traded a few emails with Rick about his bike and the guy that reconditioned their head did a valve job for me and told me all about the project. Really neat stuff. It's been a really fun build so far. Kind of sad it's almost over, but it'll be really cool to show it off when it's done. The blue and silver should look sweet!

Anyone know where i can find some decent rearsets that wont cost 1/3 of the bike?
Check out Durgam-K on this site, his rearsets are pretty sweet.

Whoops, yeah i think it would be better to clean it before you blast it.
Oh cool, Thats the paint scheme i origionally wanted.
Thanks, but the guy i bought my engine from has a very good workshop so i had the forks straightened by him with one of those spinning machines. Perfect now.
This more or less the paint scheme youre doing?

That 350 is a cafe that is right in my view.  Has a really nice long lean look, especially with those pipes.  Great work, looks are attention getting with the continuation of the stock theme. 
90 Kawasaki Zephyr 550 - love that old superbike look
95 Kawasaki KLX650C - dual sportin' in east Ohio/WV
78 Yamaha SR500 - finally building!
Bultaco 250 Sherpat T M27 - the one in the corner up there in 1974, still have it.
