Its all legal  ;D  Bike is up and running on the road. Had a great cruise this afternoon and ran out of gas. I was a bit worried for a second because it ran out as i was testing the top speed. Still a bit of fine tuning needed with the carbs/jets.

Did you have to get it inspected to register it again? Just a bit curious as I'll have to do the same with mine once it's done and wondering if you had any hassles?

I think it depends on which state youre in. I called an engineer that was on the rta's list of approved people for inspection, and he said because of my bikes age, he doesnt think it would be necessary because pre 74 there wasnt specific standards. So i just went straight to the blue slip place, and they didnt have any hassles or questions about it. They did mark that it was standard on the form though, so i dont know if there might be a problem if someone actually looked into it.

I think essentially the standards are the same from state to state with just a few variances here and there. I have the Light Vehicle Inspection Manual with all the guidelines to abide by. I am going to have to cut the frame down so I think I will have to have it engineer certified. I might just try and get away with it and see what happens! Glad to hear they seem a bit more relaxed with older motorcycles though.

Been a long time since i've had a project. But it's time to post the next big build. Some major changes since the last post, are... I moved to Los Angeles. I bought a basket case cl360 that was in a million pieces a couple Months ago. And its finally starting to get worked on.

cl360 Big project

Engine work first. Over the past 3 Months, I've been slowly getting bits and pieces together from ebay and craigslist before starting the big work stuff.
Had to order the special oil filter nut (which was cheaper on amazon than ebay for a change) and took the whole engine apart to get sand blasted, where is it now.
So while im waiting for the sand blasting work to get done, i've been polishing the parts i don't plan on painting.

How does working on the 360 compare to the 350?

Very similar. The engine seems more simplified somehow. For instance, you can easily remove the oil separators (#2) in the bottom of the 360. Its actually removable, compared to the 350 which requires grinding drilling and tapping if you want to remove it.
I kind of prefer the look of the frame of the 360 for a cafe as well, because its all tubular frame, and isn't "broken up" with pressed metal, (like the tail section) However, i do like the look of the 350 engine more, with the cooling fins all over the covers.

This is a masterpiece. Well done. What kind of tires are those on your blue and white previous build?

Thanks.
They were Bridgestones that were on the bike when i bought it. I was planning on getting new rubber, but i sold it and moved to the States before i could.
