Title: STUNT BIKE - CB360
Post by: Rusnak_322 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.

(https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-bsy54D-AheI/TSPLcrsMgYI/AAAAAAAAEd4/6aqyP38ay3o/s640/IMG00080-20100814-1829.jpg)

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.

(https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-Sp3DATNlnKE/TZNlQfEk1jI/AAAAAAAAEl4/cpkjHRASv6c/s640/IMG00446-20101106-1346.jpg)

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.

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.

(https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-N6r87moDawc/Tnf76XKBgGI/AAAAAAAAFSk/VhdjU6i4J80/s640/IMG00330-20101017-1638.jpg)

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


(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-twfAnCto8K8/Tnf9CHMXhtI/AAAAAAAAFU4/zrXk29LvmzI/s640/IMG00250-20110620-1820.jpg)

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.

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-ZpQxCfI30ow/TnanX0z5jGI/AAAAAAAAFSM/ESfgA8pBLVE/s640/IMG00279-20110706-2114.jpg)


the first color I used looked too blue.

(https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-GXO8yXvuY9U/Tnf9D8s2MJI/AAAAAAAAFVA/Pykm0396PLE/s640/IMG00261-20110625-1427.jpg)

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.

I like the seat - just not the carbon.
I already have the bike close to done, I have been working on it all summer and just got it back together to the point of starting it over the weekend.

I did the fiberglass and paint prep this spring when it was still pretty cold out.

(https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-TJDxf7eArp4/Ti4fioNL3-I/AAAAAAAAFHA/DSYkKI1pMhk/s640/DSC05440.JPG)


I really wanted to paint it myself, but I don't have anywhere to do it. I used to paint for fun before I moved, but my new garage, while 4 times the size, just doesn't lend itself to painting. Our bedroom is over 1/2 the garage and the fumes would kill us (if my wife didn't).

Here are some bikes that I have done:

I am spending some time detailing all the parts before they go back on the bike.

I used a paint pen on this - not sure if it will hold up or not.

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-ZipEKX0of10/Tnf9Fm6x4pI/AAAAAAAAFZE/BgcCZWgY-sw/s640/IMG00295-20110715-1833.jpg)


I had the frame blasted. then I spent a lot of time grinding the ugly welds down and using a little filler to smooth them out. This of course does not lend itself to powder coating, so I will have to live with the chips you get with a painted frame.

(https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-9AnivXKojqU/Tnf9GtGHXRI/AAAAAAAAFZU/-RqS050DNsg/s640/IMG00289-20110715-1831.jpg)

one of the first threads I ever came across about cafe bikes showed a way to trim the swingarm down for looks. So I did.

I decided to go with a drag bar over clip-ons or clubmans. I want to have rear sets where the pass pegs mount and I think that it is just too low with clip-ons.

I also like the look of handlebars. I swapped the clip-ons on my Ducati Monster to bars. I also want to keep the bars as clean as possible. That means no turn signals, no starter button (kick only) and aftermarket clutch and brake perches.

(https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-pt5W9KQuGLA/Tnf9HmJuQNI/AAAAAAAAFZs/LmjFzYIrknc/s640/IMG00304-20110720-1949.jpg)




As far as paint ideas.

First I thought of using the stock red tank, but it wasn't in the best of shape. Mostly just little scratches, no real dents.

I bought another tank at Mid-Ohio vintage. I think that it is from a CB450. I paid $35 for it. When I got it on the bike, I didn't like the shape as much as the stock one. My wife likes it better.

(https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-2mOyHFrssFY/TSt_B-W5kRI/AAAAAAAAEfQ/CdgmZkCmeuk/s640/IMG00305-20101016-1546.jpg)


So I bought a mint on on eBay with a cap for $80 shipped. Same red CB360 as what came with it. I also toyed with using the CL360 tank that I have from the parts bike.

As far as colors. I liked the idea of using the red stock paint since the look is vintage. I also have a thing for red & white bikes.

But I also kind of don't want a black frame. In fact, I want to use as little black as possible on the bike. Just for accent.

I really like red frames. Here is my old street bike, a Monster S4. I wanted a 900 but came across a deal that was too good to pass. It is my 2nd monster after a 750 that I bought at a salvage auction and fixed up (painted it red).

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-byNZkeDIUR0/TnkvGLch2xI/AAAAAAAAFZw/PFP6cVUS3EM/s640/10.17.2008%252520142a.jpg)

The plan when I got it was to paint the frame red and the tank black. I just never got around to it with the kids and all. I love how the bike road, but never warmed up to the looks. It did get a lot of complements.

So I sold the bike (got good money for it) and bought this:

(https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-zdD4opjDSCk/TZNeianEq9I/AAAAAAAAElI/ZkPWtQ0YFe4/s640/IMG00123-20110325-0706.jpg)


I upgraded to Ohlins front and back, radial brembos, a single sided swingarm and 20-ish more HP plus the colors that I love for about $4k over the old monster. I also got a six year newer bike with 11,000 less miles and the previous owner spent a ton of cash extras that he included with the bike.

Plus my little girl can't have a better looking Monster then me.

(https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-oUsYQzrDawg/TnkvGv7ZAJI/AAAAAAAAFZ0/3KHb0UzBIBY/s640/DSC02099.JPG)

All my riding gear is red, white and black. So that is the color scheme for the cafe racer. At first I was going to do the tank like the stock tank graphics, but with a white tank and red & black stripes. Then I saw a picture of a bike online and used is as inspiration for the tank and seat paint. White tank, black panels and some red pin stripes.

And a red frame to match the Monster.

The guy used the normal buffer with the different paste sticks as well as a ball on a drill. The last step probably was a hand polish. The mothers was a empty can he gave me with the screws from the forks in it. I just used it to show how nice it looked.

I spent for ever going back a forth over what tires to run. I liked the look of the stock rear, wanted something a little wider and vintage looking, not a new radial. But I also didn't want it to look like a brat style bike or not be able to take a turn.


here is the stock tire.

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

Looks good in the picture. If your not going to paint it and go for that carbon-fiber look. Perhaps some more wet sanding rough to fine then then use aqua-buff until it's smooth as silk. The carbon-fiber matt you used should look pretty awesome through the clear resin. Great job on the seat so far. (like you, I also work in a large fiberglass shop but as a millwright.)

I will have to find where I got the stacks from. They were under $30 for the pair and are meant for a aircooled VW car motor.


The shocks are el-cheap-o ebay specials. I don't want to drop a lot of money on the shocks until I get the bike done and know that I am going to like riding it as much as I like building it.


I need help - I got these headlight mounts but they push the headlight out too far. I can't find any that keep it in closer that I like or that don't cost a mint.

here is my speedo face I had made from a guy on this site - the blue light is a LED that I had left over from another project. I am using it for a neutral light. I still need to polish the top triple clamp.

one quick thing man. when powdering swingarms be sure you remove those bushings in the swing arm... the heat just ruins them... they look fine but break down shortly after riding... you can press them out with some sockets in no time

the center stand isn't staying. I just put it on to make it easier to work on. The tires are so much taller that with the center stand down both front and rear are hitting the ground. That is with the shocks at stock length and the forks dropped way to much in the triple tree.

To be honest, it's gonna be my bike looking like a cheap knock-off next to yours.  I put almost all my time, effort, and money into the engine.  That, and this being my first build and experience with body work has led to a less-than-perfect finish.

I'm actually wishing I used your speedo design on my own bike as well.... HA!

I am hoping that I am just doing something wrong. It is also getting stuck under the loop for the pass peg mount, and that can't be right.

I have only tried to start it one day, then I found out the petcock is leaking really bad so I am waiting on the rebuild kit to come in. (it did start on the 10th kick - but the first eight kicks I was so excited that I had forgotten to turn the key on).


One thing that just came to mind - I did use the CL kick starter because it had less rust. I didn't look at it yet, but could it be longer or different in some other way?

Title: Re: STUNT BIKE - CB360
Post by: Sonreir on Sep 23, 2011, 17:51:45
Same part numbers for the CL and CB kick, so that's probably not an issue.

For what it's worth, my own kick start only folds in after it is in the up position.  It's not really designed that way, per se, it's just a function of my foot being in the way.  When I kick and then lift my foot off, the kick start lever retracts fast enough to keep the rubber part in contact with the bottom of my foot until it has returned to the upright position.  Possibly a weak return spring inside the case?

thanks for the help. I will try the other lever and see if it is the spring.

I sucks that I was not able to get a title for the other bike, but it sure is nice to have a second bike sitting in the garage. It really helped with putting it together and getting the wiring back together.

I put an all ballz bearing kit in the headstock, not as hard as I thought it would be.

I got stainless steel screw kit on ebay for the motor and carbs. Very nice for the money as they come polished. I used anti-sieze on all of them.

I got a new chain for it that has to go on as well as a LED tail light.

Here is the pic of the tank from the painter. Very happy on how it came out. Like I said, I really wanted to paint this myself, but I don't have anywhere to do it right now. Next bike.

No,
I bought the bike last year, built the seat over the winter and slowly built the bike over the summer.
I am not a big internet poster, and I it took me a while to get the pictures posted online in order to start a thread.

The last pics were from Sept 18th. I got the bike started, but the petcock is leaking like crazy. I ordered one from eBay but it is taking forever to get here.

Yep, it sounds pretty decent. I was worried that it would be real loud with those shorty pipes. I bought them at the Mid Ohio swap meet for $10 and the guy said that they needed re-packing. I have some old packing from a dirtbike silencer that I was going to use, but I didn't get around to it yet.

I used to race a FZR400 in D-superbike and was always put with the vintage racebikes in practice. i kinda feared that that is what this might sound like.

I don't want to start the bike until I get the petcock fixed, the garage stunk like gas for a few days after I got it running the first time.

 I have made zero progress on this since the last post other then finally getting the petcock rebuild kit in. I bought one on eBay using paypal and somehow the transaction didnít process. So I was waiting by the mailbox and then got a email asking if I was going to pay for it.  :-[
I am trying to get it done before I run out of weather in Ohio. But the wife and I are planning a ride on our other bikes to southern Ohio & West Virgina - so that is going to eat into my free time.

I didn't get anywhere near what I had planned to do completed. I started to finish my basement, blew out my back, went on a 620 mile overnight trip on the ducatis, then my son got sick and then I got the worst flu that I have had in my adult life.

I had to pull the swingarm to grease it, pull the steering apart to lube the all ballz, pull the wheels to install the brake internals, install a chain, rebuild the petcock, and generally go through the bike from top to bottom.

For whatever reason, I could not get the petcock to not leak like crazy. I wound up using the one from my parts bike with the new gaskets in it. I had soda blasted the leaker so it looked great, the other one looks like crap, but will have to do for now.

I spent the better part of today messing with the clutch and trying to adjust it. I could not get it to work. After a few hours I realized the metal ball was missing on the cam - it was there when I put it together but must have dropped out when I pulled the cover to double check that I tightened up the countershaft sprocket when I put the chain on.

I finally got to ride it.

(https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-JgIDAuOVpko/TqNk431_dsI/AAAAAAAAFdw/aBR1uq3yMJI/s800/CB360%252520riding.jpg)

This is from a video my wife took in the street in front of our house. still no mirror, brake lights or plate.

It starts up easily, I have not had a chance to mess with the carbs much yet.

I have a few problems:

     1) The carbs keep falling out of the intake manifolds. The clamps are as tight as I can get them, the stacks that I have weigh the same as a empty pop can so they are not weighing them down. Is there something that people do when they lose the airbox to better support the carbs?

     2) The shifter keeps getting stuck under the brake pedal & foot peg. If I adjust the screw on the kick starter to make it real hard to pivot it in and out, it works OK, but that is a poor answer. I need a real fix.

     3) The kick starter sometimes goes all the way down without turning over the motor. can something strip in the motor if the kick starter is in the down position and the motor running? What would cause it to not catch on one kick and then catch on the next?

You can get brand new intake manifolds from Honda I was having the same problem. The lip on the carbs clips into a lip in the manifolds. My old ones were so hard that they wouldn't go all the way in. New did the trick tho!

The guy across the street from me owns a printing company. He made some up for me. all my biker friends kept asking if those were Ohlins shocks.

I think that I have the carb boots sorted. I just had to use a screw driver to move the clamps as close to the carb body as possible and they seem to be holding up. I have only done test rides in the neighborhood, but so far so good.

thanks, I became a twins convert kicking and screaming. I loved high rpms and top end rush. I tried to race a SV650 but couldn't ride the thing when the red mist hit. I just couldn't learn to tractor it out of turns without thinking about it.

The CB does sound pretty good for stock pipes and $15 mufflers.

I can't remember where I got it from (maybe have the receipt at home). It was from a hot rod shop and cost $35. It was a little bit of a pain to fit into the stock headlight bucket. I had to cut it with a dremel, and even though I took precautions, I got dust and debris inside the light. It was a huge PITA to get it clean.

They had the black dot on the center in red and blue as well.

I had a Monster 750 and a S4 before my current one (with a few bikes between them) and I can't think of another bike that I would rather have at any price.

The air cooled bikes look so much better but the 4 vale motor is just so much fun.

You 800 looks great - my m750 was red, but it had the gold frame and wheels.

The mufflers are temporary. I am on the look out for a damaged oval sport bike muffler that I want to shorten and use. I will need to con one of my friends to make me a 2 into 1 that will look good. I also need to make a heat shield before I do any real riding.

You could make a simple dual core muffler with two inputs and one or two outputs.
All you'd need was someone to cut some end plates from aluminum to suit an oval'd portion of thin wall aluminum tubing. You can buy perforated tubing cheap for the cores, some stainless wool for fill and some rivets to hold the works together and you're off to the races, fully custom and better than kludging on some reworked take-off. You can do it mate, the level of detail shown proves that to me!

The dual core is a good idea. I will still glob off of my friends. I have one friend who has a fab shop and specializes in high alloy work.  I also know the owner of HMF exhaust. http://hmfracing.com (http://hmfracing.com) He made me and my wife custom exhausts for our street bikes a few years ago.

OK, I got the bike done in time for Vintage days at Mid-Ohio and put it in the Cafe Racer Magazine bike show.
It was pretty cool to see so many people looking it over and taking pictures of details and the whole bike.

I got the seat done by a local shop for $60. I made a metal base and he covered it. Took only two days.

I had problems with the charging system and eventually bought a Oregon rect/reg unit. Now all my electronics are that, a battery and a fuse box.

I went with a side mount plate. I wanted it to be under the tail light, but it would have to be almost horizontal to not hit the tire.

It uses a two wire connector to allow it to be mounted to the tail and still be removable.

I did not like the way that the head light stuck out too far on my bike, I wanted it pulled in more. So I measured up my brackets and went shopping online. These Taiwanese made brackets were advertised at about 1" shorter then what I had. I guess they didn't count the fork bracket like I did. Oh well, same length, better looking but more expensive.

The light came from - http://www.radiantz.com/

they have them with built in turn signals (1/2 of it flashes) they also can be bent like I did. I was going to have it on the back hoop of the frame, but I messed up the measurement when I had the frame welded. I was going to have it flush with the rear of the FRP tail but it is slightly recessed.

Not a lot to post except that it is running great. Thanks to djelliott for coming over and helping me figure out the carb problem.

I did have a velocity stack fall off (my fault for not tightening it after taking the carbs off for the 100th time).  I heard it fall and before I could retrieve it, a car ran it over. I actually passed it the first time, I thought it was a flattened soda can.

I have a pair on order - a $30 mistake.

Only issue so far was the first (and only) time I rode at night, the battery died on me about 1 mile from home. I stopped at a light and the bike died. Turned off the headlight and it started back up, but then wanted to stall when stopping. I have to look into this, I have the two wires connected together and thought that I had the charging sorted.

Little nits to pick - 
neutral light sometimes stays lit.
brakes need adjusting
Need a fork brace
odometer works, trip doesn't
Need to hook kill switch back up.

The Nohilns shock is a RFY eBay shock. I kept having people ask if it was Ohlins, so I had the Nohilns stickers for it made. They don't have great dampening, but I have the preload cranked up on them as well as the ride height. With the forks lowered, it gives it the look that I was after.

The carbs are stock, I went one size up on the main jet (can't remember what size that is). It runs well, but needs the choke left on slightly to run best (I would guess about 1/8th on).

So I just got my Radiantz tail light. When you bent it, did you have to heat it up at all to get it more pliable? Mines pretty rigid and I'm not convinced that the double sided tape will stick to where I want to put it, which is on the seat hoop.

I'm tipically not a fan of red frames.. But you really pulled it together. Great job man. Made me a fan! :-)

Red frames rock.

But only on bikes with fender or fork braces.....   Don't make me come down there (wherever "there" is) and hurt you. I don't want to do it, but if you won't fit a rear fender and fork brace, you will make me hurt you before you hurt yourself......

Gotta love the logic there ;-) But seriously, a small inner rear fender will help keep rocks and small children out of the stacks and brace will help to keep both wheels in line around corners.

I am a dumb-ass.
I put the bike up on Craigslist. I had someone come 3+ hours to look at it and the bastard bought it!
I miss it already.

My thought was to sell it to get money to build another bike, I didn't have time to ride it much last summer. I plan to have less this year, as we just bought dirt bikes for me, the wife and my 6 & 2 year olds. I have plans to make a track at the in-laws and spend some time in the dirt.

My next bike will be either a Bad Moto Guzzi, a bevel drive Ducati single, a air-cooled two stroke or maybe a dirt bike based bike like the XL600 that the Battlestar Galactica chick has.

I did get just under $5k for her, which is not too bad.

Damn gotta hate it when you get 5k for a 360. Horrible luck ;)

I know the feeling man when I helped load up my 350 when I sold it it was all I could do not to say "you know, never mind ill just keep it"

I went with a side mount plate. I wanted it to be under the tail light, but it would have to be almost horizontal to not hit the tire.

Here is my tail light mounted up

It uses a two wire connector to allow it to be mounted to the tail and still be removable.

thanks -
I miss my bike.
I can't wait to start the next one. I need to pick a bike and buy it before I change my mind. I keep going between a XR600 and a vintage triumph as a starting point. I really want a old Moto Guzzi, but can't swing to high of a cost and they are not exactly for sale on every street corner.


The light came from - http://www.radiantz.com/

they have them with built in turn signals (1/2 of it flashes) they also can be bent like I did. I was going to have it on the back hoop of the frame, but I messed up the measurement when I had the frame welded. I was going to have it flush with the rear of the FRP tail but it is slightly recessed.

Chinese ripoff of a quality Ohlins shock. They are junk and are prone to breaking the lower clevis mount off, but what do you want for $89pr. off Ebay. They are made for bikes weighing in the 250lb range. I  like how they cleverly disguised the Ohlins name, really?

If you can re-build the shocks they work really well.
I've got around 110psi of nitrogen in mine and nothing has failed (found out a year later that 75psi is recommended max pressure  ;D )
It NEEDS a fork brace
