I have started working on my bike. This is my first build and hopefully no the last.I will provide pictures of the breakdown and re-assembly of the bike. That is if could put the bike back together. I have notice that the wiring on this bike has been tampered with by the previous owner. Overall the bike will be painted and certain parts will have to be re-chromed. I also have head gaskets leaking oil from both sides of the engine. This will be the last task at hand. I would like to work on the frame and wiring. Have all the parts laid out and sent to chrome or repaint(I will do the painting). The engine will be painted as well. If I have to take the heads off to replace the gasket, I should just go ahead and add some paint to it. Cleans up the engine and make the bike even better (at least thats the plan).

Here are some pictures of the work done so far. By the way I will have allot of stock parts from this cb350, I will not need. At the end of the build I will list them. If any one from this forum needs parts for there bike, I will be more than happy to give them the parts.

Started with this

Sweet,looks like it wasn't in too bad of shape to begin with. That should help things along some. The color(metallic green)is kinda cool looking IMO,I hope you keep it on there.

I'm thinking of repainting the tank using the stock colors. There are allot of scratches and the sticker that has been fused with the paint. I might just change the paint scheme if I can do away with the stock air filters and the battery box. I really want to take off as much weight as I can off the bike. The bike was not in bad shape,the frame was just chipped and covered in grease. All of the bolts have rust and are being cleaned up and painted. The ones that are in real bad shape are being replaced or sent out to chrome.

It's always Coors Light time. Its refreshing, smooth tasting and very affordable. REMEMBER I NEED TO BUILD A BAD ASS CAFE RACER !!!!
