new to the forum

my name is Brian
im from RI

i have a 1974 cb360 that i am building along with the help from my local bike shop cafe cycles. Pete does the welding since i don't have one and he helps with whatever questions i throw at him.
so far ive put a hoop in rear, battery box, li-ion battery, led lighting, custom harness from sparck moto, i decided to make it kick only. im working on building a custom exhaust with parts from cone engineering. my plan is to build a scrambler style bike, but i will be lowering the bike about an inch and eventually i want to stretch it around 4inches (que hate comments). the engine has been painted along with the frame, just need to do the wheels and random pieces. i dont have any pics to post since im at work, ill get some up later

Great bikes I have a 74 as well.   I would highly recommend the wiseco 10.5/1 compression pistons.   I also deleted the.  Electric starter. They make a plug. But I cut out an aluminum plug and welded it in for a cleaner look   But it sounds like you’re doing all the right things
