    Little update: made a new front tank mount, welded and filled about 3" of the front of the tunnel



    and shaved one of the petcocks and moved the other one to the rear frisco style.




    sneak peek of the new paint... who says you can't achieve maximum flake with rattle cans?

    Ha true dat... with the rest of the tank being bare metal it was starting to surface rust often so i had to do something... The metalflake looks good, now im going to tape off some graphics and lay down some 'candy' the way BlueMoonKustoms does, the cheap version

    obviously not the best pic, but paint is finally done with yellow and red rattle can candy for an orange-ish overall color.. I'm happy with it, now its time to bury it in clear

    I realize these phone pics are half useless to post, but for all the rattlecan haters out there:

    well depending on how anal you are, you may not like the process I used, as all the materials were what I could find locally at walmart or autoparts stores, but the process went as follows:

    1. shaved/relocated petcock(s)
    2. shaved the front of the tunnel because i want the tank to sit higher
    3. made a new mount for the front of the tank
    4. bondo/bodywork
    5. primer
    6. layer of generic silver paint
    7. a few layers of walmart 'spray glitter'
    8. sprinkling of actual craft glitter
    9. few layers of clear
    10. wetsand
    11. tape off graphics
    12. stretch lace and dust with black paint
    13. layer of yellow "candy" (duplicolor metalcast)
    14. layer of red "candy" (Krylon x-metals)
    15. bury it all in clear and let it cure for a few days

    The helmet was already gold metalflake, so I just taped out some psychedelic graphics and sprayed my "candy" on it.

    I'm sure naysayers will undoubtedly come out of the woodwork saying "the glitter wont last, dont mix brands, dont put this on top of that, rattle cans suck and never work in the long run, I only use PGG.. blah blah blah". But to that I say for the cost of having someone else do it or buying all the proper materials/tools, I can change my mind 10 more times and change up the look if I want. For my money, I think it looks good and I've never been a purist in any sense of the word.

    Basically if you want to do it, do it and if the final product looks good, who cares what Johnny Bodyshop has to say about it.

    Default updated pics

    It's been a minute since I last posted, but here's how the bike sits right now. Definitely not perfect, and I already have plans to change up the rear fender, but its not bad for the moment.

    Yes, its covered in pollen and the orange peel on the tank is monstrous, but I plan to wetsand and buff a little down the line now that the paint is fully cured. Once its polished you'll be able to see the copious amounts of flake (right now looks pretty dull)










    I still hate the shit out of the cb350's thrifty stamped backbone




    about as skinny as she's gonna get






    in this pic you can kinda see under the tank on the left side where I made a mount and stuck a mini voltmeter so i can keep an eye on my battery, because it's been messing up lately.


    pay no attention to the two gnarley exposed wires


    little things like the headlight mount are what keeps me busy these days



    made a window for the points cover from a tax disc holder i bought from ace cafe. Pretty cool at night when the points spark


    I also painted my old gold metalflake bucket I had laying around with the leftover paint.



    so what do you guys think?

    thanks guys.
    I kindof want to lower the front end a few inches to cure the semi-lopsidedness of it.. Think I should? or am I imagining things and ought to leave well enough alone?

    The spark plug wires are from lowbrow customs.. the other cloth covered wire on there is just a regular wire run through a shoestring.
    In complete honesty 90% of the things on this bike were made by me out of crap i found around the house

    You should totally drop the front end, so the bottom of the frame is parallel to the ground.
    but the bike really looks great!
