'74 CB 360 Cafe Build - Luna - "Done"!
« Reply #500 on: Jul 26, 2018, 09:32:42 »
Of course, after sitting, the crappy front brake on this bike decided to seize up AGAIN (after I put about $100 in parts into rebuilding it). So I threw the stock setup in the trash and set out to swap. I used an EX500 rotor, EX650 caliper and GsS500 master cylinder. Made a 27” SS line with some fittings from Summit Racing. Bracket done up in 1/4” steel with some spacers welded in place. Better braking and it looks the part.

The night before the buyer picked it up I couldn’t quite get it to run right. Wanted to stall every time I snapped the throttle. After looking and looking I finally found that the intake boots weren’t sealing at all. I pulled the carbs and boots off, installed new gaskets and spread a thin layer of yamabond on each side of the gasket. Let em dry overnight and voilá she ran like a top.

A quick shakedown run on a Sunday and she went off to her new home.

Mate just read through your thread for the first time, Luna sure is a looker. Must be bittersweet parting with her, the new owner must be stoked.

And we have the same taste in gold carb hats. My man

Thanks dudes. It was bittersweet, but I have so many other projects going on that I had been neglecting this old girl for way too long. The new owner is a young guy who wants to really take it to that next level that I never brought it to, so I'm happy to see it go somewhere that it will get the attention it deserves.

Congrats again on the sale fella, now let’s see that ghia build thread

Thank you sir! That means a lot. Glad I could provide some inspiration and insight for some of the awesome builds on here.
