Now that's a find. I think you should sell me a cb350 tank.

Lol. Thanks. My common law girlfriend was pretty furious when I told her what I had done though. Of course I had already paid for everything and had it all moved into the basement before she found out Told her over a nice dinner at her favorite restaurant. Better to beg for forgiveness than to....Well that's all I remember. Beg for forgiveness.   

The first intact cb 350 was all locked up. Both wheels and motor. I had to drag it off the back of the truck and into the basement down some stairs. Did it by myself in the midle of the night. Took me 45 minutes to get it about 30 feet . lol

hahahahahahah that had me in stitches hahaha legendary mate

Lol. I'd sell parts but you never know what youre gonna need. I've had 3 tanks sandblasted now that turned out to be full of bondo covering massive dents.
With my luck I'd spend 3 times as much buying stuff back than what I sold it for.
I'm powder coating the parts in my basement so can't have the gobs of bondo in there . I have recently acquired high heat bondo though that will take the 400F in the oven in case I have small ones to fill.

Went and got the frame/swing arm blasted. Also had it welded up to reinforce all factory seams.

Got her powder coated a gorgeous dark silver metallic. Glimmers in the sun. Too bad this is a basement shot. Also got those aluminum chrome rims from "biskenso2007" from Tailand. You may have seen the recent post "best ebay seller in the world". Truly awesome guy with nice rims. Paid about 200 for both I think and came pretty quick considering it's Tailand. It was going to cost me 350 to have my old rims re chromed. What a rip off.
  Also in the pic are my new Progressive shocks and Avons.

No idea how to get rid of rust inside the tank at the time. So I figured I'd open it up and remove it. *Sigh*. Ended up not even using that tank anyway. Was going to cost me 100 bucks to weld it back up. I can buy a way better one for that and this one had a dent in it. It was a learning experience.
