    New here. 1975 CB360.

    I got this about a month ago for cheap. It's one of my favorite bikes of all time. I had one in high school that I never got running, so when this came up I was stoked.

    This is it when I got it.


    I started taking it apart and figuring out what I wanted to do with it at the same time.

    I put on a pair of DMR wingbars on it.


    Nipped the rear fender and trimmed down the tail light mount to fit one of those nifty old school "stop" tail lights I got from a friend. I also used the old reg. plate to make a bit of a fender with the license plate.





    This is how it looks right now. Getting there... I'm waiting on a new petcock and have to get the front brake squared away. I took the seized front caliper apart, cleaned it and now it leaks.



    I got it to run a few weeks ago and it ran on one cylinder, but had good compression.

    Funny thing, I had the tank off, had just blasted the carbs with cleaner, I put the battery in and bumped the elec. start just to see if it even worked and the bike fired up, ran for a second and promptly died. It kinda spooked me.


    Anyway, that's her. I think I'll call her Philly. (No affiliation with Philadelphia, I just like the name.)

    Let me know what you think.


    Cheers -Adam

    Are moderators able to completely eliminate posts/members, based on stupidity?

    You fuckers are harsh. At least he had the good sense to not side-mount the license plate.

    Hey Adam, welcome. We're sometimes mean to newbs. We expect a level of competence not always found on other forums. We want to like you, but not so much that we'll condone motorcycle butchery.

    Haters gonna hate. Sorry to have offended you guys here with my own bike. I guess I asked for your opinions and I got them.

    Later, bitches.

    Man, this guy didn't even make it through Judey! Imagine if he had stuck around long enough for Geets or Tex to join the fray.

    Well, another one bites the dust.

    In case Adam checks this again:

    I have one almost identical to this. While I don't personally care for the mods you've made so far, its not my bike, so its not my business to build it for you.

    If you want back-patting, this isn't the right site. If you want to build a purpose-driven bike, or just want to get some good all-around helpful tips, this IS the place.

    If you're happy with what you've got and don't want to risk negative feedback and don't want to field advice from guys who know what they're doing, I don't know why you'd join any forum. Let alone CR.
