Nope.  1/8" mild steel bar from Ace Hardware.  The tank hides most of it.

Enricheners will work fine, just looks a little strange to me  ;D
I've used bicycle spokes to make a link from left to right carb and just used left lever, it is possible to rotate it slightly to clear clutch cable but your set up looks much easier to use

Well, for those still interested in this project . . . I've torn the engine down "one more time" and discovered (finally) why I was having trouble shifting.  Stupid oversight on my part.  The transmission bearings were missing the ring sets (Part #14) that hold them in the proper position in the case.  At least I hope that's the reason.  I'm waiting on NOS to install and see if that brings it online.  If it does, I'll finally be able to put it all together, and then SELL IT!  This has been a frustrating project at times, but all in all I've enjoyed it.

Having worked on this project for what seems like 3 years, I've finally plunked down my money on a bike that actually runs!  After I installed new coils, a Pamco IE, replaced the petcock, and shined her up I've got a beautiful 72 CB350F.  A baby 4 for putting around town.  This bike is a blast!  I realized that being retired, I needed a bike that wifey and I could enjoy together.   ;D

YES, still very interested in this project.

Im sorry its been frustrating for you.  Im thinking you should keep and ride her for atleast this season.

Put the wife on the 350 and cruise around hunting for that ultimate ice cream stand together.

BTW the 350 IS a beautiful example.

Thanks Trek.  It was $945, and I put another $400 into it.  Yeah, if I get the café in ride able condition I'll probably keep it for a little while.   ;)

I've been scoping out your updates.  Lookin' good man!

thanks bro.  Im still waiting on the front fender tag from india to arrive.  If its not too terribly cheesy I think it will be the cherry on top. 

Until of course Mr. E produces the new billet triple top he's making for me. 

THAT will be the ultimate lipstick for this old pig.

I have no doubts, the very first successful run around the block you make on the old girl, All your woes will melt away and you will fall in love all over again.   ;)

Well, my project has finally come to an end. . . Bike is now for sale on local CL.  It was fun, I learned a lot, and I appreciate all the help I received.

I don't have a fancy Hero camera, so video is a little shaky, but you can hear how she sounds on the road.  She is wicked fast fun!!
