Really clean build mate :)
I think your engine will look great with the satin casings, as everyone says, these are some of the best looking engines of the era.
To do the over lay on your clocks did to have to prize the glass off the top?

The only hard part is getting the stainless steel ring off the waist. Then the guts are just all stacked on top of one another, the glass sits in a rubber gasket.

Thanks, we have a shit-ass-load of snow still. I was in Saint John for the weekend and there was none until you went in the woods where there was still enough for a nice snowshoe.

Here's a peak at what the front end will look like with the tach, speedo, signals and big Honda Hornet halogen headlight. I am reading that I'll likely have to go to a smaller output H4 like a 35/35w. Any comments?





And from the riders perspective.

Ill post it right here in your thread for easy reference. also, I would go with a 35w/35w H4 bulb. you could get a significant power draw from running a higher wattage bulb that could affect performance. ask me how i know.

Digging the bike! Really liking the seat. Should look really sweet riding down the road when it's all completed :D

Re: 1974 CB360 project- lots of pics and progress - - not many comments :(

heres how i did the steering stabilizer. mounted it on the right side with some aluminum angle iron, sprayed black. used two self tapping sheet metal screws with rubber/metal washers from lowes. on the tree, i just drilled a hole and put a nut on the bottom with some red loc-tite. I put the tank on, positioned it as close to the tank as possible, and then took the tank off and marked the position of the bracket (angle alum).








god, im a bad photog. im sure being drunk doesnt help. oh well. let me know if you want some sober shots of the setup.

That's, I really liked the seat the first time I saw it. I am really starting to feel attached to the bike, lovin' the lines.

I didn't take any pics of the tach while apart, I should have I suppose. But it seemed like there were lots of pics on taking it apart already.

I just peeled the stainless steel ring open and it all comes apart like stacked cups.

That was just sitting there as I was putting it in neutral. I am using some Tarozzi folding black rubber rear sets
