CB350 Hardtail - Done
« on: Sep 02, 2015, 17:42:39 »
This bike has been floating around in my garage for awhile and I have recently finished it for the most part. 

It's a CB350 with a CL350 gas tank and some random metal pieces welded together to make a seat extension. There is a bunch of reinforcing steel under the seat area and around the swing arm.  Also some on the full length of the swing arm.  It has a 19" front wheel which I like to run on all my 350s unless I run a 21" wheel.

Not the most comfortable bike but it's fun to putt around the neighborhood on.

Its pretty darn neat to sit here and look at in pics.  It is unique.

But, you got bigger balls than me to actually ride it.

Even with the added support to the swing...I dont know dude.  Theres probably a mind blowing amount of leverage forces working there.  when your hitting bumps in the road.

I agree.  How did you support the rear swing arm?  I see a welded triangle on the top and some pipes welded on the bottom.  I'm no expert, looks cool as shit, but im curious how much force would be needed to reach it's breaking point.

Agree with you trek............wish I had a frame to put my 350 in. I would do something minimal like that, maybe not quite as extreme with the frame mods.

I think it will be fine.  I built a bike a few years ago and posted it on here and some people thought it would break once I sat on it but I still have it and it's still on the road.  This one will be fine.

Ever rode through a deep g-out not expecting it? the only thing that scares me is the seat position, I get the fear of pogo in that ride position and no suspension out back. The barz are not really for dashing around in parking lots so more of a suburbs cruiser eh.

I don't know what a deep g-out is.  Google thinks it's gout but I'm sure you didn't mean that. 

It is a suburbs cruiser, since I live in the burbs and my riding ability is pretty good so I graduated from only riding around in parking lots.

"G-out" is a hole or bump created by braking or hitting the same bump over and over, many times as in braking bumps it's an impression followed by a bump and those will chuck the ass end of a bike up like a pogo stick if you have stiff or in your case no suspension... In other words, watch out for pot holes mang :o
