Nice!  Actually the red bike you posted is owned by a DTT member here.  its been so long ago now I cant recall which user he is.  But he may pop in before youre finished.

The other bike needs more work (fenders, muffler and footpegs relocated further back a bit maybe? ) but its a nice looking build.

Did you get have thing running before you took it all apart?

Im guessing you didnt get the thing running before you took it all apart?

I was wondering the same I'd get the piston to cylinder bore clearance checked to be safe, check the ring end gaps, new wrist pins to say the very least. Like the paint another member just used a similar color engine paint might have to keep it neutral with the frame/tank paint now though.

Also do the oil mods, read up on crazypj's 360 thread or just search cb360 oil mods you'll find em, call it preventative maintenance.

Yes thanks for all the info
No the bike was not running
It had been garaged since 92 it was complete except the seat even the rusty tool kit

As far as engine work I've done all myself with assistance from my job
I work at a precision machine shop
The engine was pretty clean
Inside and out once I got all the case screws out
I've upgraded to Allen bolts
For assembly
As far as Pistons the originals were decent just cleaned em up and cylinders just need a fresh hone to get fresh cross hatches
All measurements were well within tolerance

It's a slow process
one part a week i try to buy
Working on new gasket set and rings and tensioner kit
Then motor should be all buttoned up

Who makes that copper metallic paint? Is it a powder coat?

I baked mine in the oven to make sure no paint bubbled
And it stuck great

Ok so I've done some more work on motor but unfortunately found this forum after so it seems I'll be waiting on putting top end together until I do some  more cosmetic work on the jugs
Right now my engine is metallic black w/metallic copper cases
I'm going to buy a dremel and do some interesting stuff
I'll be sure to post pics
Also plan on doing crazypj's oil mods and posting pics as well just to get the info and pics out there again

I will update tomorrow with pics  of paint
