    Cb350 Rear Wheel

    Brainstorming,

    If you were going to mount up a more modern rear wheel to an existing 1971 cb350 swingarm what would you use? No spoked wheels, disc brakes would be fine without a ton of machining and spacer. (some can be made and some parts machined)

    Nobody? You have to have some ideas. There isn't a ton of rear wheel specific information out there. I'd hate to just buy stuff to try it out, or steal them off of other peoples motorbikes.

    this dude used an fzr600 rear wheel. I think they are 18" and not 17"

    I know the cb750 shares a rear axle diameter with the cbr600 f2, maybe the 350 does as well?

    Wolf its in my car, wrapped up and ready.

    [:I](has been for the last week)[:I] PM me where to send it and it will go out today on my lunch break

    Geet, you are one away! I don't really want to change out the swingarm if I don't have to. Is there anything wrong with the stock swingarm when mounting up a newer wheel short of the mounting for brakes, offset etc? Meaning am I going to break it or tweak it modifying it enough to accept a modern rear.

    I am taking a similar idea for the front as the guy from Ohiocaferacer with the Cb350rr but I don't want to just copy his. I know his build has been discussed here before. (found it in the search) http://www.ohiocaferacers.com/gsxrcb.html

    i bet its easier to make the swing arm fit the frame then the wheel fit the stock swingarm

    You think? May be true. I'm still inbetween that place at what point do you just have a modern bike when the only thing stock is the engine? I worry about cutting and boxing up a new swingarm as I don't have any experience with that and I would hate to compromise the integrity of the design to make it work.

    Lonewolf its out, should see it saturday.

    I like the guys idea because that brake holder makes the Cb350 swingarm feasible but the FZR wheel wont match the front, not that you can really tell with all that disc brake up front but still, I would know.
