Cl350 Scrambler:Thigh fryer
« on: Jan 15, 2018, 13:37:03 »
Been a long time since I posted on here, pretty much just gave up since photobucket essentially deleted any photos I had.  Anyway, I have too many projects but have gotten back to being responsible and posting some progress.  Picked up a pretty clean and running 72 cl350 from a buddy of mine and here is how it goes. Less talk more photos. 





So, the shop is pretty full.  Just a few projects at the moment. 87 BMW k100rs Im building for friend. Cb650 bobber. cb550. cl350. grom. 72 bronco on rotisserie.

wow, pretty full shop there man.

Interested in seeing how this build goes, considering I'm in the midst of one myself.

Sometimes it hurts to chop a frame, this is not one of those times.  The stamped steel looks awful and had to go.

bike up on the lift.


 I just finished this table/lift and am loving if.  Used a HF 8ton air/hydraulic jack, 2x2 tubing and a 3/16" steel top.  I added several features like a folding ramp and wheel clamp.  But maybe my favorite is that I found I can shove some aluminum angle under the top, and hang parts bins.


see whats i mean, sh*tty stamped garbage boner



chopped






marking where I want to attach rear frame with 1/4"


Finally!  I always think Im gonna use these things and I never do, worked pretty well


transfer to steel




check fit


Glue that sucker on.


Repeat.  I will tie these in further later on, to clean up the soon to be tank mounting area.








rear hoop all welded up, since the shock mounts were stamped steel wrapped around tube, I had to slug and rosette weld some tube to tie back into. You can see under ther hoop, I welded up a jig that bolts to the rear shock mounts on the swingarm, this way I could keep everything centered while I weld.  Of course will check on the frame jig later once evertything is further broken down, also gotta make some new shock mounts

Got the subframe almost all welded up


 Ive removed the stock tank-mounting points  in the rear and will weld a back on to the tank to not only clean up the look, but will provide a mounting point for the seat pan, similar to dirt bikes.




I need to finish up the seat pan, and make the seat.  I'm working on some seat designs, hopefully will be able to market some later, so ive been doing some testing, making plugs and molds to fill with 2 part flexible urethane foam .  Have made some progress already and will update some more later.
