Joe, the work that you do is what drives me to not take short cuts and take some extra time on my engines... Fantastic work on everything that i've seen..

Do what you want to do.  Don't let fear or common sense stop you.

Joeyputt I will always watch whatever you're building not only because of your obvious skills but also because of your respectful personality, sincerely. Plus the '74 RD350 was my very first motorcycle, I bought it new, out the door for $929.00  my brother also had bought one two weeks earlier.
  Cheers, 50gary

Brother it is always good to have you here, I truly appreciate your comment about my skills however I am just a regular guy that loves to turn wrenches! As for my personality I have always tried to be a good loyal Brother to everyone and it is always nice to hear that it shows so thank you for that my friend! It must have been really fun for you and your Brother to both have brand new RD350's at the same time!

I worked on the RD for a few hours this afternoon and removed the headers, mufflers, front foot pegs and mounting bar, rear foot pegs, shifter, brake pedal, rear shocks, chain guard, etc. I also started taking measurements and planning a few different frame, suspension, and rear set ideas!

Brother Andrew we have not started to clean the frame yet as we just started taking the bike apart, we did finalize most of the build plan today so I will be starting all of the frame work this week and I will post a lot of photos of the entire motorcycle build including the complete engine build!

I had a very nice talk with Brother Bluesmokey the other day and we have decided to stay with a more traditional style cafe build for this bike, we will be running clubman bars, an extended tank, a cafe race style tail section, spoke wheels, rear sets, a nice set of exhaust chambers, etc.

We were originally considering a mono shock for the rear suspension however to keep the traditional look we decided to keep dual shocks and upgrade them. I am going to back half the frame so I removed the lower rear frame rails as well as the shock mounts, the rear frame cross section, and a lot of the tabs.

I also removed the rear peg brackets so that I can start to build the new mounts for the rear sets. I am going to leave the engine in the frame while I build the rear sets so that I can build the shifter linkage, check the clearance for the kick starter etc. After I complete the rear sets I will remove the engine and start to rebuild it.

Here are a couple photos of how she is resting this evening!

Chop Chop Chop!!!! I love the fresh silver metal showing and can not wait to see how the rear end cleans up after all the below modifications.

Yep that pretty much sums it up. I always keep a close eye on Joey's builds. If you ever find yourself short on inspiration just check out anything he has done!
When in doubt gas it!!!
