So... Jenn FINALLY has a build thread: '71 CB350
« on: Jun 30, 2013, 03:16:40 »
Finally getting a build thread started... Go, me!

I picked up a '71 CB350 from my buddy Travis (thompsonmx100). It's not running... Needs battery, carbs, wiring harness, controls, etc. It needs pretty much everything-- exactly what I wanted! :D



My plan is to turn my little disaster into a pretty bobber. Since I'm a shortie, lower profile bikes appeal to me greatly. I will lower the forks and trade out to shorter shocks. Rough riding isn't on my agenda, so I'm not very concerned about it sitting lower. 
It currently has CL pipes on it, which I wasn't too crazy about to begin with (yes, I know that's not the popular idea), but they are growing on me, so I think I'll likely stick with them. At least for now.



Short break with Mr. E.



The seat pan was awful (handmade and stick welded onto the bare frame), definitely doesn't suit my goal, so decided to get rid of it and start fresh.



Of course... since it was welded on, I got to play with fire.



Victory is mine.



End of night #1...

Just want to take a moment to say THANKS to a few people:

**Travis (thompsonmx100) for giving me a helluva good deal on my bike. You are awesome, fella. It was most definitely a pleasure doing business with you. :D


**Eric (trek97) I am certain you're just as excited about this bike project as I am! THANK YOU for the box of goodies you sent to me. It was like Christmas when those packages arrived at my house. Especially since they were for ME, not E!
Here's a preview of the fender, headlight, and tail light you sent:








**SHUPE (JustinLonghorn) I probably wouldn't have gotten involved in DTT if you hadn't made me feel so welcome way back when, so thank you for that... and for answering all my silly questions thus far. I will have plenty more for you, ya hack. ;)


**My Mr. E... Thank you for allowing me to invade your mancave, wrench with you, and smoke your pipes. I promise I will not drink the last beer. ;)

When E pulled it out he said there was nothing rattling around in it. Good sign #1...
Other than that, not sure. Haven't opened the lid yet.

GO GIRL POWER!   I think a bobber for a girl would be called a "BOOB"er... Wah Wah Waaaah.

I promise I will not drink the last beer. ;)

Mr E

Gotta love a woman with an angle grinder...

...every dump I take is original too, and it doesn't smell any better because of it's originality.
