1969 cb350 project

Re: 1969 cb350 project (rear sets ON!)

so i changed my chain and hooked up the rearsets. having some trouble with them so far. i didnt pay attention that my kickstand was attached to my old foot mounts so i have no way to stand it up. my center stand wont work with my pipes under the engine. also the rearset is not clear of my kickstart which is the only way to start my bike. its supposed to according to kris whom i bought them from so im guessing my kickstart isnt stock. who knows. the rear brake doesnt seem to be engaging well either but the spring rate and rear light work so im not to concerned on that yet. over all happy but damn these things never are easy.

So got a couple new pics and problems solved today. my center stand is on though without the stock mufflers i had to makeshift a stop till next weekend. nothing an "L" bracket cant fix. also got the brake arm flipped which helped the brake a bit. still not perfect but it will do for now. its my daily ride so if its not done by sunday its not getting done. got everything wired up, again not the prettiest, but it will do until i can hide the wires. oh and that penny trick does work

Looks awesome. How do the stock headers with mufflers go with the rearsets? Do they clear alright?
 
no i wouldnt think so. i have some old mac headers that go under the bike. still a pain to clear the center stand. most people on here i think use just pipes with baffles or a longer header that starts the muffler slightly further back. also depends on the muffler. i never had stock mufflers or else i would eye ball it for you.
 
Im on the waiting list for the same rearsets you got, so just asking. Thanks anyways. Looks like ill have to make my own pipes then :-\
Cool trick with the pennies, ill have to give it a go.

i know those old stockies started pretty thin and work there way out so it might be a possibility. i just know with the travel MY bike needs for the brake lever it would totally hit a muffler if it were there. i know someone just posted the same question on the rearset thread and kris who makes them said it should clear. ive seen the thread of that dude who asked and i think he is running stock mufflers too. just so you dont lose hope ;)
 
Thanks for the info. Im not planning on stock mufflers actually. Im more wondering if it will clear any muffler (to a degree) on stock headers. Where the headers stop it seems to be pretty close to where the brake lever should pass either way.
 
Re: 1969 cb350 OPINIONS/PHOTOSHOP HELP?

so been thinking of the next big thing to do to the bike. ive been doing little things to improve its over all quality but its nearing the end and i dont think im ok with that. going to do some painting this weekend pending rain. ANYWAY, been thinking of getting this fairing and just wanted some thoughts if you think it would look good with the stock tank? every bike that ive seen has the longer cafe tank and i just cant find those for a realistic price. especially for some shitty fiberglass ones that wont stand the test of time. i either need to come back down to earth and realize it wont look good or some support that says go for it you idiot.....

and if any of you Photo Shop guys could help that would be AWESOME!

Lucky for you I'm on a conference call and photoshopping. Looks like it's too big and you'd seriously have to chop it up to make it work... It's for a CB750. I think they do make smaller ones though.

thanks for that man... saves me a heap of problems. the website says this will fit all the cb's but im not sure. thanks again, im grateful for your boredom.


oh and for those that were wondering on the rear set clearance. just got my cb360 kickstart which fits the 350 and clears the rearsets completely without even needing the folding peg.

That 175 is sweet. Love the black pipes with the chrome covers. 3 pretty nice looking bikes right there, really like the little pea shooter mufflers on the blue/white... Sweet eye candy!!!
 
So haven't done much to the bike lately as I've been enjoying the 90+ weather everyday and riding the hell out of my bike. But like all projects its never done. Going to paint the rims, seat, and headlight bucket (again) then button up some things. just ordered some new shoes from DCC along with some grips and little screw to clean her up. Buddy who did the 175 sold it and is redoing a 360 so should have something else for you guys to look at soon. excited to get back into my baby and clean it up even more!
 
some DCC parts. if this "hurricane" leaves SC alone they will go on this weekend and maybe some PAINT! she needs to be finished before a vintage car show I'm taking her to in september.

I wouldn't plan on them getting there anytime son. Irene is bowing up to the east coast. We're kinda safe here in Florida, but I'm thinking SC is gonna get a sucker punch to the gut.
 
the crazy part about all this is its supposed to be pretty nice tomorrow now. never know with these things but ever since we got hugo a million years ago our town SHUTS DOWN with any chance of a real storm. being below sea level the whole city floods with more than an hour of rain. sad. but on the bright side i may get parts on by sunday! I'm tired of riding with pretty much front brake only :eek:
 
got some work done today. changed the pads and thanks to some servo tape got the old honda emblems back on from my 69' tank. also painted the rims and cleaning up any old rusty bolts before this show. so much humidity here even when the bike is covered these old bolts get surface rust. letting the wheels sit for the night. i'll post some more pics tomorrow when they go back on.
