CB 360 no label parts build!
« on: May 28, 2018, 11:50:20 »
Hey guys Iím new here!  I live on the west coast, play music, and tinker in the garage. Cars, boats, bikes, anything that catches my eye. I donít make enough money to keep everything I build 😭 so I sell some of the things I build. Iíve  used this forum for learning and lurking in the past. Iím in process of putting together a bike from parts and thought it would be cool to document it here. Iíve already started but Iím gonna post a lot at the beginning to get it caught up.

To start I have a non running incomplete engine in an untitled frame 😂. I ordered another frame off eBay with a title.

I think this bike will have a bent towards being a cafe but ....I donít wanna be locked in.

Valves are getting reseated, new guides, seals from Schumann motorworks. Cylinders getting bored locally.

Sweet.  Every time it seems like the 360 builds quit happening, another one pops up.

What exactly needs to be chopped?  There's not a whole lot of surplus metal in the form of brackets or tubes on that frame.  It already has a rear loop, so nothing at the back needs to be chopped.

looks like from the untitled frame he has - rear peg mounts, side cover and fender mounts, battery/electrics tray, probably a welded rear hoop

i'm amazed the clean triangle cafe look is still "in" Im starting to see a lot more bikes with side covers on them.

oh... you really need to drill some more holes in that rotor... unless you like grooves - holes need to overlap

I'm not going to say not to chop anything, but I prefer to cut things off as I build.  You never know what might be able to be utilized.   These have a nice bolt in rear hoop that can be shortened, if you want that look.  The turn signal brackets may get chopped, but you may find that other aftermarket lights look nice there.  The seat lock will likely get chopped.  Lots of guys cut off the center stand mounts only to regret it later.

Hey sorry for the delay I was getting my Memorial Day partying on yesterday. Good call on the rotors. As for the rear chop I am working on bending up an old set of 7/8 handle bars to fit in like the original one does. If I hate it Iíll start over. Hereís a pic of what Iíve done.

Because of the angle of that picture it looks crooked. Let me try another
