    Project "Caroline" CB350four And so it begins!

    Curious if we know anyone that bought a stupid amount of CB550 engines to try to build one bike.

    1982 CB750F... The resto-not

    I do like wozza described, but I use a wood block to tap them in. The cutoff handle end from a baseball bat is a good tool for this exercise. I hit with the end of the bat to the race. That said, I've also done this with a chunk of 2x4, harwood plywood and a piece of 4x4.

    ZX10r Fork Swap onto Virago Help

    I did a similar thing to put a TL1000r front end on my BMW R100/7, but machined the two pieces of stem to be press fit, then welded them up.

    My 550 isn't done. No side covers yet and I haven't made the seat cover. Plus I blew the clutch raising hell in my neighborhood on it's maiden voyage. I suspect this will be my only shot at a nomination, but i think it should at least have a seat cover. LOL . Granted, there is no way in hell...

    CB360's-from build to blog - 2013, MDS (Mo Dumb Shit)

    I would question the "girls are easier" theory. My 7-year-old has been pretty smooth raising, but my 5-year-old is a terror. LOL. Guess who's turning out to be like dad?

    You're right. Red is faster.

    Finally got it out for a ride and basically blew the clutch. [emoji23] Needs heavier springs. Sent from my iPhone using DO THE TON

    ZX10r Fork Swap onto Virago Help

    Are the stems the same length? A shorter stem will move the clamping location for your fork legs. If they're tapered, or stepped, you won't be able to use the ZX6r stem with the ZX10r front end. What is the ZX10r stem length compared to the Virago? You may need spacers to make it work...

    1970 CB350 Spring Thaw Hellride

    Took a chance on a front fender listed on EBay as a YR1. It’s close, but I don’t think it’s actually it. Close, but not quite right for YR1. Regardless, with a little work, I think the fender will fit. Whether the fender braces stay remains to be seen. Sent from my iPhone using DO THE TON

    That's what this is. It's not a perfect fit, though, since my 650 has two bottom case bolt locations that interfere. I'm still working out fitment.

    1978 CB550 Pieces/Parts Hellride

    Got the engine back together and added an oil cooler. Using a filter housing from a 550. Mocking up where the cooler goes. I’ll need to weld a bung and two hooks to set it right. Ready to fill it with oil and fire it up. Sent from my iPhone using DO THE TON
