"Stinger" | my wife's CB350four
« on: Jun 12, 2017, 15:44:04 »
I've actually already been working on this for a while, but I never posted about it on here. What we have here is 1973 Honda CB350four. And per her direction and my guidance, turning it into a sort of brat bike.

Explanation of work in chronological order according the the attachments:
Stripping down the tank to the bare metal and polished it, clear coated.

Chopped off some excess frame and random bits. Started making the "stinger" tail. After making the first curves and joining them into a sharp point, i then reheated and bent it for a second curve upward. Then welded to the frame.

Made a simple battery/electronics tray out from sheet metal laying around. Welded to frame as well. Then used my trusty 3D printer to make some useful brackets for mounting the battery and other electronic parts.

After that, got started on the seat base/frame. Of which is all done, and the seat is about to go off to the upholster this week.

Removed the hideous green fork tube covers, and replaced with some new headlight brackets. During the process I discovered a pretty bad crack all the way through part of the top triple clamp. So gonna have to replace that.

The carbs that came with this bike were in bad shape. Stripped threads, broken pieces all through out. Ended up just buying an entirely new set of old carbs and rebuilt them. After doing that and installing the Dyna S electronic ignition, it fires up and runs quite nice.

Last week I picked up a sharp 4 into 1 exhaust from a friend here and installed it. Love the looks of it, and sounds really nice too. Here's a video of it running (mostly running, i suspect I have a cracked overflow tube or 2 in the carbs as its got some excessive fuel coming out of the overflow lines).



That's the basic, short version, run-down. Tons of other little things have been done, and parts on their way. Over all I like how well it's coming together.

Did a quick spray can job to the modified frame portions... just cuz I wanna get this thing road-ready so my wife can actually enjoy riding it. She's owned it for years and never had the opportunity to. Once winter comes back around, we'll properly take it apart and do some finer details.



And started shaping some copper fuel overflow tubes. She wants to do copper accents around the bike, so I thought I'd start there.
