been gone since friday morning.
was going to do a "build thread" but forgot my camera.
ended up trading out some stuff for a low milage 1975 CB360T.
got the bike saturday morning and started tearing it down to make it my own.
it was a mess when we picked it up,but my friend Terry (ToecutterP) and i spent 3 long days and nights reworking it and adding our own little touches.(thanks for your help man. you did alot!)
i have never owned a Honda before.....it's very little,but it runs and sounds like a raped ape.
it's not the most raddest bike,but it's mine and will do for the time being until i finish my Big Twin build.

it's still growing on me. we went a little overboard on some things on it (on purpose).
was going to swap the tank out and put a wassell tank on it to make it more proportional and mount the seat with springs,but forgot the wassell at home. it's getting a pair of very narrow z bars that have crazy pulldown in the next few days.

i am eventually going to put it in an Amen frame,so how it sits for the time being is cool with me.
to be quite honest,it's fun as hell to ride and thats all i care about right now.

Travisino: thanks for picking it up and helping out. much appreciated my man.

why thank you,sweet tits.
lol!

it will do for the time being.
like stated before,i'm gonna change the tank and get that seat on springs.

having a charging issue right now. as in: there is no charging wire running to the battery.
i know nothing of these bikes and can't read a damn wiring diagram for the life of me.

Rev. Mike:
it's a Jap copy of the old vintage style Bridgestone tire.
if you like,i'll get the name off of it tomorrow.
it's an 18x4.5

Man that thing is clean, any plans to chrome them pipes? Normally I don't like chrome, but I think they would look pretty sweet on yours. But regardless it will always be a nice bike!

maybe later down the line. it was basically "build it with what we could scrounge up" for the time being.
they would look better chromed,thats for sure.

Terry & DeeBee(Toecutter & DeeBee) have an ultrasonic cleaner in the shop,so every nut,bolts,carbs,etc. went into the cleaner before putting back on the bike. it looks damn near brand new.

the motor has something like 5K original miles on it.

having a charging issue right now that i have to figure out. but i suck at electrical.

thanks for the kind words.

I hear on the scrounging, I'm still trying to do that with my CB750 build. Having clean parts to work with is always a plus.

Hope you figure out your charging issue!

That tank with the small bars and the shortness of the frame make it look like a mini bike. Which is pretty sweet actually.
