So I found a cb360 today that I can probably pick up for maybe $100 if the Boss (Ol' Lady) says I can bring home a project. Not sure the year or any specifics, I do know that it's gonna need some work. It's still got good compression and turns over even though it was on it's side in the mud when I went to look at it. The carbs will need work and it will need bits and pieces to get it up and running. What I'm wondering is how reliable these things are, how hard is it to get them running, and what kind of chopping can be done to them. If anybody has one or can direct me towards info on them I would greatly appreciate it!

I will try to get pics to post up tomorrow. The thing looks rough!

Garage Company Customs built my 74 CB360 a few years back. We started out with basically nothing and built a cool little bike. It ran great on the highway with the 6 speed trans. I regret selling this bike every day! Good luck with yours!!!

pic of my 360 project. the biggest thing is figuring out how you want to have the hardtail attach to the double down tube section i think. As far as the bike reliablity, its a honda, and will run forever if you keep up on the maintanence . the only known issues I heard of with these are bad cam chains.So replace that when you open the motor..

Its not the chain, its the chain tensioner, they were recalled. Its not to hard to find the replacement ones. I haven't done mine yet, but need to.
Did some checking online but just ran into a bunch of deleted links. What I did find is if the recall repair was done, the shop should have stamped some dots, 2 or 3, near the serial #, but of course that was not always done. I will have to look at mine when I get home.

something that may cause an issue that i need more info about is the bike may not have a title. the last time it was registered according to the tags is march of 85. whats the process for getting a lost title or maybe a builders title or something along those lines?

Everyone has different rules. Usually you can just go to the DMV and ask them for the forms you need. Then have a cop come in and run the VIN to make sure it's not stolen. Once that's done it's just a matter of money.

I have a 74 cb360 with a bent exhaust valve. Does anyone know the part number for a replacement valve or where you could get one?

The tank was raw steel. I rusted the orange section, painted the white and cleared the whole thing.

Both of those bikes look great. I hope mine looks as good.

Update: Won't be able to get the bike until the beginning of April. Gonna be a long month of waiting!

that cafe is awesome, was talking to a guy about a cb360 a while ago for a summer project to fuck around with, but when I told him I would have to wait and see what kinda money I could come up with, he told me to go fuck myself for lowballing him :rolleyes:

The CJ 360 was only made two years (''76/'77) and was kind of a cafe bike out of the box. It has larger exhaust pipes, kickstart only engine (no hole drilled for the starter), surfboard of a seat, longer tank,plastic front fender and is generally a more stripped down version. There may be other items that are different but I don't know a ton about them. They are somewhat rare to find.

We made the frame into a hardtail.
