Great thread! Keep those pics coming. When you get to the point of striping your tank and seat, I would be interested to see some pics on how you do it (e.g. type of tape, how you taped it, etc.). Are you using a spray gun or rattle can? If can, what brand?

I'll probably use my HVLP.  I've used it to paint my cars and airplane with single stage paint, but never done detailed striping work before.  I think I'll do 2 stage paint this time so I can lay down a think layer of clear to wet sand and buff.

Nice thread and great work on the seat/tank. Good luck with the rest of the build.

I think I'll either buy some Ninja front rotor bolts or make some sleeves out of tubing to space the rotor to some 6mm bolts.


Stock EX500 rotor bolts are shouldered.  10mm shoulder with 8mm threads.

Re: Salzburg '73 CB350 - First Build - Update: Frame work

Only a slight amount.  I mainly modified the frame.  I ground down the top seam and welded it shut.  I also ground down the two tank mount studs about 1/4" and narrowed the stock rubber mounts.

Do you think I could get away with just beating the seam down? grinding and welding back together are a bit farther than my skill set allows me to go

I really don't see how you could beat down that seam.  It's very thick metal.  You could probably grind it down to the top of the pinch welds and then beat in the bottom of the tank.

would that weaken the frame any?

Yes. Do it the right way and be done with it.
