I'm 1 week into the 2-3 week wait for powdercoating to be done.  In the meantime parts keep arriving in the mail.


New controls!

It's like Christmas!  Time to start reassembling! (and waiting on more powdercoating...)

Re: '73 CB350G take II: resto-mod - front suspension!

I've got the front suspension ready to go back together.  Full 35mm suspension from a CB550. New CycleX tubes.  It also has RaceTech emulators, adapters, and springs. Plus new preload adjusters, seals, plastics and even rebound springs.

Whoah, if things continue coming up to this current standard, this is going to be one beautiful bike!  Nice job.

Do you have any more info on the fork rebuild you have conducted?  Where did you get the info etc on the emulators?  Cheers

Thanks JadusMotorcycleParts! I have to say I'm really impressed with your work on the SR250 and love the 3D printing prototyping! I'm hoping to something similar with phase 2 of this project, but want to get it back on the road first.


Most of the model-specific information I got directly from talking with Matt at RaceTech via a phonecall.  Luckily the 550 front end on a 350 is relatively common in the vintage racing community so he was able to give me very detailed information on how to set it up. In addition, with the emulators a static rate spring is required and he helped me to pick the ideal spring rate for me and the bike too. I highly recommend contacting them.



Useful links.

RaceTech has a wonderful description of how the emulators work.

and a good tuning guide too

Thanks a lot for the info man!  I look forward to building the next bike with a bit more on road performance so i think these will be essential for the old SR forks.

Will be cool to see your progress with this build :)

Picked up this KTM Duke 390 to keep me entertained while I finish up the CB350 project.  The hope is to still have the CB350 roadworthy sometime by the end of summer.

Finally dropped the frame and swingarm off at the powdercoater. Keeping things moving along.

Regarding the new bike...
The KTM is fantastic. A bit twitchy with a sensitive throttle but that just makes it more interesting to ride. I've been bombing down some fire roads and getting it pretty muddy. The Pirellis are fine on the street but not so good in gravel and dirt. For a 390 cc single I'm actually quite impressed with how quick it is too.
