Howdy from my cb350 and I
« on: Mar 26, 2018, 09:00:59 »
Well I figured I have lurked for long enough that I should introduce myself. Currently working on my first motorcycle, a 1970 CB350. I've been working on cars for a while but have always wanted to build a Cafe Racer. I've thrown in a few pictures of what it looked like when I started versus where I'm at now. May start a build thread but I'm really bad at keeping them updated. Anyways, looking forward to becoming part of this community.

Welcome Joe - echo the comment - nice bike both before and 'during'.  Did you keep the original sheetmetal somewhere?
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

Thanks everyone!

Original sheetmetal as in what I removed to fit the seat? Yes, I actually was able to cut off the the whole seam and seat support thing in one piece so it'll be easy to put back on if I ever wanted to.
