    cl cb cj similar frames???

    are there any common frames and body parts used on the mid 70's honda's? i see that the cl, cj, and cb 360 is the same except the exhaust and a few small things, but is the 350, 450, or even the 200 cc bike the same frame. i know many manufacturers use the base frame to put multiple engines in (aprilia, buell, ducati, and kawasaki) but is there any base in the many engine sizes in the 73 thru 75 range???

    take a minute and look at the frames of a 200, 350, 360 and 450. clearly different animals.

    not 100% sure about all that. a manual or two states that a 250 is the same???? is that an exception?? just trying to get an idea about which bikes i can get parts from..... i'd hate to bastardize my bike by putting just any old junk on it like play-do!!!

    Bastardize how? If it fits, it fits.

    There aren't many parts that are standard across that many different sizes (the horn comes to mind). What are you after?

    honda is the one manufacturer where the frames are not a shared item. The CJ frame is actually a lot different from the cb/cj frames, so sometimes even the same motor had more than one different frames.

    I can't think of a single honda bike that actually has the same frame as another bike. That doesn't mean they didn't have shared components. A great example of this is that cb750 and cb550. completely different bikes but they still shared things like wheels, brake calipers, etc. Swingarms and such would not fit but some of the smaller stuff would.

    the best way to find out is to look up your bikes part numbers and then do a look up by part number to see if there are any shared applications.

    excellent, that is what i want to know. more often than not i see similarities, but actual confirmation is expensive and time consuming. i just wanted a general basis to look for parts like tanks, sidecovers, seats, etc. i may be taking a trip to a cycle graveyard and i don't think i'll be so lucky to find all the things i want on my exact bike. and since i will NOT have the bike w/ me i want a good idea of what will fit perfect and what will need to be "engineered". thanx
