    Swapping drum brakes

    Hey there, this is my first post on this forum. I recently got a 79 cm400 that I'm gonna going to slightly modify. The first thing I wanna do is change to spoke wheels. My question is will the drum brake internals of the cm wheel fit into a cb350 brim brake hub? Thanks everyone

    a few minutes of search or google would drag up info

    Cant you just swap the stock mag wheels for the stock spoked wheels?

    Rear can't, the brakes look the same but shoes are wider on CM400 and I think may be smaller diameter. (haven't actually tried it)
    If your fitting drums, probably smarter to get brake plates with them
    CB350 and CB360 have different front brake plates even though the shoes are same

    The other night I gave my girlfriend an orgasm, but, she spat it back at me

    Why swap swing arm?
    All you need are wheels with matching brake plates

    well thats what im talking about...
    IF you had a complete drum/spoke set up from a hawk can you swap that onto Mag wheel bike?
    or are the rears that much different that you would need the swing arm off the wire wheel bike?
