MGD's 1975 CB360T
« on: Apr 16, 2012, 23:59:40 »




Hi everybody, I'm new here.  I just picked up this 360 two weeks ago.  I'm new to the cafe style world, and road bike in general.  I built up a Ruckus a couple of years ago, and now I need something a little bigger.  I had to start some where.  So I looked for a bike I could work with.   The engine needs some attention, but runs and drives very well.  I put on all new brakes and tires to shake it down, and see what else it may need.  Some how the owner I bought it from didn't need top shock acorn nuts.  Nor did he know how to use the electric start.  He claimed he never used it.  I found out why.  The bars were changed, and some one smashed the start button into the tank, making it useless.  I pulled the wires back so it wouldn't "automatically" engage.  It works great regardless. 

Any support on custom parts would be a big help. 

Thanks.

Made up a bracket for the LED tail light/directionals.

I use factory mounting points to hold it all in place.

I moved the horn and key switch.  I cut the key down and use the choke select switch off a Honda snow blower to make up my ignition switch.

I found a NOS Jardine on craigs list locally.  Turns out the guy has all sorts of parts for 360's, gaskets, carb rebuild kits, side covers.

Found a way to mount up my lights.  I also found a nylon rear sprocket on ebay.  I have to spend a night taking the rear end apart, again.

Let's just say the tail light fits within the Honda family.  It's hard to get a picture of it, but the tail light has amber turn signal LED in between the red LED's. Three rows sequentially.

You really need a fork brace, forks twist like crazy without it

Alot of things going on lately.  I found out I need to replace the cylinders, but then I already knew I needed to tear down the engine for seals and gaskets.
 


Also crazypj was nice enough to mill me some pieces, one of which I haven't seen before, a speedo delete.  It look too good, like I should rub it with dirt and oil before putting it on the bike.  Very nice work PJ.  It fits very well.  No pictures yet but he also carved out a tach block off and factory peg bushings.  C'mon custom rearsets!! 





I decided to move the ignition switch again, after I put on my headlight brackets.  The pointer of the switch is inline with the bracket in the "on" position.




Mounted the nylon sprocket(flat blacked it), but I really need a snap ring tool to get this sucker back on. 



Oh, I also ordered a 74 kick stand, due to the fact it didn't have a whole lot of crap hanging off of it.  Sadly, it's too tall, and doesn't hold the bike up well.  So out came the grinder.

Good to know, I have only taken her out around the block a few times to shake her down.  I did cut the fender free of the bracket, perhaps it will get cleaned up for installation.
