Actually there is a brace in the rear, the original one, frame feels rigid enough. Also the shape of the frame dosn't exactly make it easy to do a hoop. Do you think i need a brace further back?

Once you're behind the shock mounts, your behind most of the stress area. not to say a hoop or brace back there won't add some rigidity. these bikes were designed as commuters and weren't over braced by any stretch. But its true its not the easiest thing to work with that stamped frame rail.

My '72 350 has a rear brace. Don't have a good picture but you can see it in this one. Plus the flat one that is in the pic that Danish posted. They don't all have this brace?

i chopped up the rear end of my 72' cl350. it's was a little too weird to add a hoop so i just cut it down and filled in the gaps. i did also ad another brace back there that my seat pan also bolts down to. there's pic of it in my sig.
good luck!

Mine had that as well, but i cut it off because it will be in the way for my seat/battery plans.

I'm planning to make a brace betwen the to holes in the frame, something like this:

So, decided to skip sunday church and lay some black paint instead:




I'm very pleased with the result, considering it's a spray can job.

Next on my project is to clean up my workshop, start assembly and take some better pictures.

Also i need to organize rest off the build and figure out what i need to finish my projekt.

Great work so far. Congrats on the little one! My little guys have slowed progress on my bike as well but I don't mind. Looking forward to see how this turns out. Cheers!
