1969 cb350 project
« on: Feb 24, 2011, 22:05:40 »
So I've been working on this project for about a year. It not only was my first project but my first bike. I had no idea what I was getting into. Let alone I dont have a garage or any place to really work on the bike. I made a lot of mistakes and have learned a lot through a cafe club we have here in my home town. I did so much backwards Im just posting like its a whole new project that a more knowledgeable me is starting. The only down side compared to the other projects I see on here is that this bike is my daily driver and cant really break everything down then rebuild. This pictures should show what I've done and where Im going.

This site isnt letting me download some of the pics but this should give you an idea. I have a NOS tank for a 1972? coming in. I commissioned a man off ebay to build me a cafe seat pan that should be done mid march. Also a mini battery coming to hide it under the seat. The battery is coming this weekend so I have to play with some ideas to hide it. I cant weld and live in an apartment complex so should be interesting. Nothing some tin cutters and some L-brakets cant deal with.

Lookin' good. I think keeping the bike running as much as possible during one of these projects is a great way for a first timer to avoid getting things so torn down and f-ed up that it never goes back together. It is also fun to feel the rewards of your labor right away.

So just got my new mini battery in. Should be interesting hooking it up. Going to lowes in the morning to build a tray. Might need some advice. Think Im going to ditch the solenoid and starter cable for now to save me the trouble. Again it says my pics are to big to upload?! They are from my phone... Seriously? Anyway, I'll try again in the morning

So this has worked great for two days now but leaving my parking lot today I blew the fuse   :( . Do you think something just grounded out or could there be a bigger issue. See any problems with my set up? ( beside the fact its not pretty ). Still waiting for the tank and seat.... the ebay curse.
