Looks great so far. I don't believe a 150 rear will fit in a CB360 swingarm though. Chain to tyre clearance would be an issue too.

Yeah did some more research and I will have to go with a 140/60

Got the CB350 hub in and started cleaning on it. I need to hit it with some brake cleaner and some soft brass brushes to finish it up before I send it over to powder coat. I have new brake shoes, springs, bearing and sprocket to put back on it when it comes back.



Gotta take the swing arm over to a buddies show to use his media cabinet to clean it up.  Should I do the brass bushing while I am at it?

If your buddies blaster uses glass bead then don't do the brass bushes...

depending on the tire selection

I had a 130 tire on a cb360 and it was less than 1mm clearance of the chain. if you did a 520 conversion, you could be a little better off.. but I doubt a 140 will work

Will be lengthening the rear swingarm by 2.5". I have talked to Devin over at Cognito Moto about what it takes to fit the fatter tire. Rear shocks will go to 14+"

It does use the glass beads. Can I do the brass bushing and just rebuild the swingarm after?  I mean tear it down, media blast, clean and then put the bushing in?

Man I'm in on watching this build.

I like the way it's looking.

Good job so far.

Glass bead gets imbedded in material, particularly something as soft as brass, and will wear it out very quickly once reassembled. If you mean doing the swing arm without the brass bushing in place, then no problem at all.
