You can have motor out and stripped in about an hour (as long as you have impact driver and clutch nut spanner- it's similar to 350 oil filter nut but smaller)

no doubt; one benefit to many pushrod motors is how easy they are to disassemble compared to their OHC counterpart. I'm going to put off the rebuild for a while though. This bike is currently my third priority, behind my education (final on tuesday! woohoo...) and my cb350, in that order.

Brother Joey, thanks buddy! awesome to hear coming from someone who does such awesome restorations as yourself.

Been studying all day for my exam tomorrow, but I found the time to get all the final paperwork from the PO to get this thing back on the road, and while having a cup of tea (okay, maybe three) I got about 90 percent of the rust off of the rims, using nothing but an old towel, some pretty good ammonia based non-abrasive metal polish, and the age old classic that still comes out top in my book for most stuff- nevr-dull.

Tomorrow following my exam I'm going to get her running and then proceed with cleaning off all of the paint from the plastic by first soaking them in hot water for a while (I believe the paint is latex based), and then hitting it with the pressure cleaner (if I can still find mine, otherwise I'll use the local gas stations :) )

After all that, since it shouldn't take very long at all, I'm going to be doing CB350 stuff, mainly fiberglass.

Final exam tomorrow, so I needed to have myself some relaxing work...

Spent most of the afternoon cleaning all of the nasty grease thats been caked on for years. Got about a pound of sawdust and grease off of the motor, and proceeded to strip off little nick-nacks that need further cleaning, fixing, and paint/restoration.


First I made a new battery for it using the existing wires and new connections. They are the slip on terminals, but I wanted them covered and secure, so I shrink wrapped the wires onto the battery after making sure the connections are nice and secure. This also avoids the chance of a short circuit. I had this battery for nearly a year; Used it as an off camera flash battery once in a while, and what do you know... it's exactly the right size, 6 volts, 4.5ah, and lead acid type. Came out beautifully...



Heres the other things I removed, and labelled... I've learned my lesson from my first bike; organization is key to success, and everything one step at a time.











As she sits...





NEWS FLASH!!! As I wrote this post and uploaded pictures, my doorbell rang. It was the postman dropping off a package, which I found odd as I wasn't expecting anything for a while. What do you know... The parts came in from Bangkok already! thats under a week! and extremely well packaged. HIGHLY recommend the seller. I'll upload pictures in a minute.



P.S. I also made you guys something, I think you'll all appreciate it... I'll show you soon  ;)

So well packaged... I haven't been this impressed with a seller in years.



Parts are really high quality, even those that are not OEM.

There's about eleventeen bazzillion of them in far east, probably quite a few still running round from 60's  ;D
 Is the seat sprung with a heavy duty foam then the cover?
I know some were, instead of just foam (can't remember how early though)

Yeah it's surprising how many are still around the east, as well as europe.

unsprung, But weighs a TON! unbelievable how much this foam ways. Surely there has to be a lighter, comfier alternative? I think I'm going to go with a seat cover instead of a whole seat since it seems simple enough to change it out.
