STUNT BIKE - CB360
« on: Sep 19, 2011, 22:35:17 »
OK, here is the long over due start to my build thread.

1974 CB360. Some stunter must have owned it because it came with a 12 O'clock bar and a stunt cage.





I originally picked up this CL360 but it didn't have a title. Here in Ohio they seem to think that if you have a bike with no title, then you are a thief. There was no one at any of the title offices that I called or visited that offered even the slightest bit of help. Oh well, $125 lesson learned. It was worth it just for parts.

I wanted to build my own seat. I have worked with fiberglass a little working on race bike fairings. I also have the advantage of working for a company that builds large fiberglass fans.




My first try - I kinda like it and kinda don't.









I also grabbed the drum front wheel and pipes from the CL and put them on the CB.

I tried another design, something different.



It only cost me $20 for the foam and it was enough to do a bunch of designs. Good thing since it is hard to get them symmetrical.


Going more traditional cafe.

 










Foil, tape and waxed.




couple layers of glass and topped with some carbon fiber that I had laying around from an old project.



The carbon has some silver in it, but it didn't look as good in person as I thought it would.

I started to polish the front hub before I took the wheel apart. I have done some polishing in the past, but I soon realized why I haven't done more. I am to anal, hate the mess and with two small children in the house, I can't run the machine most of the time I am able to get in the garage and work because that is when they are sleeping.



So I found a guy on craigslist and had it done.











Looked good when put together.
You can also see the wheel. I painted the spokes and cleaned up the rims and nipples. I didn't have any problems with scratching the paint on the spokes that I read about in other build threads. The engine is aluminum and I used some other silver paint for accents on the tappet & point covers as well as the cover on the top and the exhaust things.




the first color I used looked too blue.








Much better, but now the aluminum looks blue - this is only in the photos, not in person.

Great looking build there, man

On the the subject of title, I've never understood why the law makers (in your there parts) are so tough on this. If you'd picked this up here in Australia, say from a wrecker's or just found it in shed, and you wanted to get it registered, in your name, all you have to do is go to your local traffic authority give the them the VIN number (vehicle identification number) they would do a search, and if it doesn't come up as reported stolen or written off it's basically yours to do with what you like (same for cars).

So how much time have you put into so far?

You didn't answer the $64 question - IS that awesome stunt cage and 12 O'clock going back on.  LOL.  I notice that the 12 also doubles as a place to put one foot when doing awesome vertical wheelies.

The polish on those covers is amazing and makes mine look grubby.
