Any pictures of the build?

Depending on how difficult the swap is, this may be the next thumper craze. Though I imagine the XR600 motor isn't any more common than the Honda 360

Here's a link to the build.

http://www.hondatwins.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=9280&start=50

The conversion wasn't too difficult. The engine is easier to get in n out than the original, as it's shorter, much narrower, way lighter and roughly the same height.

The main things were a new exhaust, inlet manifold and external oil tank set up. Only one frame crossmember needed to be cut n moved. The lower one at the rear.
I bought a complete running xr600, used what i needed and sold off the rolling frame when done. That way you get all the brackets and small bits n pieces to make the conversion look as factory as possible.

And best of all when it's done, it's so worth it.

Cheers

That thing has to run hard!  it's a pretty light setup then you add that torquey 600, nice work!

Here's a pic of her new arse. 
Seat's way more comfortable. Rear fender is temp, waiting for a new 4" alloy one to arrive, which I'll use on the front and rear.

I really wish you had not built this. When I first saw the bike, my thoughts immediately turned to building a "special" with a big bore single in place of the original anemic twin motor.   Since I read your build thread, my spare titled 360 frame is whispering to me..."build it, you know you want one"!  Last night I dreamed about a XR600 powered street bike...you've ruined my life! LOL! It is a very nice bike, nice design and execution. I bet it is a hoot to ride.  Anyone have a spare XR600 motor?

Do it, just buy a complete, running XR600. PM me if you need any help.

Here's a couple of pics of it lately.
Lowered 2" all round and a different tail light. Also made a gearing change. Modifed the inlet manifold and painted it black
And painted exhaust.
Still ride it to work every day. So much fun

NICE! I'd considered this kind of swap before as I have a couple "extra" titled CB450 frames with no engines......Love, Love, Love!

Just read your build over on hondatwins, WOW, exciting and interesting to say the least.  How does she do on the highway for long periods? You've now got me wishing I had the $500 for a rebuilt 86 XR600R that's for sale locally.  Maybe the CB350 will have to sit a little longer and I can twist the wife's arm for christmas......

Thought I'd post an update.
Done about 5K trouble free miles. Still starts first kick and runs like a scalded cat.
Added new shocks, shorter rear fender and changed its profile.

Currently building a new light weight wheel set and super sticky rubber




Cheers

Damn.  THAT is a nice-looking bike in all respects (aside from the tires!).  Would love to give it a ride.  Glad to see there is new rubber in the works.  What type were you thinking about?
