owner/builder: jon-michael blythe "a.k.a. -rugburn"

bike: 1974 cb360

bike name: "Dot Rat" dot rat refers to a person from the
neighborhood of Dorchester in Boston. it was meant
as an insult for the poor blue collar type that live in this
section of the city. I concider it a badge of honor to be
a "Dot Rat"

Mods:
-Frame: most of the fab work was done by a great local
fab guy dave huntress. tanksbytigman.com
-motor/carbs: stock.
-trans: six speed!
-wheels/forks: stock w/ 18''x4'' Dunlop k70's front and rear
for rubber.

though the bike is tiny it is purpose built to split lanes,
jump curbs, and navigate effortlessly through the city.
say what you want about this small Honda, but say it
to your self as you sit in traffic on that big bagger stuck
at rush hour with both feet on the asphalt.

special thanks to: phil ostermann "tikipunx" and
anthony chen "chen" for being there when it comes
time to hit the road, or grab a wrench on the side of
it.
