So I picked up a CB360 on craigslist locally over the winter and started a build. Not sure why this model is so popular these days. Seems like everyone is building one.
Unfortunately I did not take any real 'before' pics, but it was pretty rusty and missing lots of parts. It had a CL360 tank on it. My plan was to originally build a tracker style, but I found this really nice seat on ebay and decided to go with a cafe build instead.
Parts purchased so far:
black drag bar
new clutch and brake perches from DCC (getting rid of all stock hand controls)
duro tires front and rear
CL360 drum brake setup for front in place of disc setup from CB (I know it sounds crazy but I wanted simplicity)
MAC 2-into-1 pipe
all new seals, bearings and gaskets for bike
new top triple clamp (original was cracked)
K&N air filter PODs
new/used headlight (mine was broken)
new clutch lever spindle (mine was stripped)
new gauge faces on order
Here is my plan:
finish stripping engine and paint it black.
finish stripping frame and paint it black.
use the MAC 2-into-1 pipe as seen in pics
strip and re-paint the CB360 tank
cut off frame tabs and get the seat pan to sit down on the frame rails.
mount and balance the duro tires on my black powder coated wheels.
decided to go with drag bars (two other bikes I own have low slung clip-ons, so I want to save my back on this build).
will use stock front foot rests instead of rearsets (see comment above)
Some thanks need to go out to crazypj for rebuilding my carbs.
More to follow soon, I hope.
For those of you who are curious- the second to last picture shows my CB200 engine and spare CB200 frame.
