Every journey begins with a first step. Mine was a letter from the Ministry of Transportation stating that I'd lose my M2 if I didn't complete my testing. Problem is that the ex took my bike and I hadn't rode since. So I figured I'd buy a cheap bike. Fix it up and do the test. That rabbit hole turned out to be a long and winding one that....well, has led to 11 ownerships in my pocket for a bunch of cb 350's and 360's.
   
I found the first bike up near Barrie Ontario on kijiji for $300. A 1970 cb350 in bad shape. When I was taking it apart I found what looked like a rats nest in one of the cylinders. It was difficult getting it registered too as the listed owner was deceased and the family had different last names. I actually searched family trees online to track them down and got them to sign it over.

So I've been working on this bike. I enjoyed looking around online and seeing so many amazing builds on "do the ton" and elsewhere that it was extremely difficult to make up my mind on what direction to go in. I knew that I wanted to get into vintage racing so that was a start. Other than that though I felt like a painter that had 10 different painting in his head and only 1 canvass.

I was on kijiji again looking at other bikes and came across an ad that went up only an hour ago. It was a listing for parts from many many vintage honda's. Turned out to be cb 350's and 360's. Problem solved.

Lol. Thanks. My common law girlfriend was pretty furious when I told her what I had done though. Of course I had already paid for everything and had it all moved into the basement before she found out Told her over a nice dinner at her favorite restaurant. Better to beg for forgiveness than to....Well that's all I remember. Beg for forgiveness.   

The first intact cb 350 was all locked up. Both wheels and motor. I had to drag it off the back of the truck and into the basement down some stairs. Did it by myself in the midle of the night. Took me 45 minutes to get it about 30 feet . lol
