i am in the process of rebuilding my 70' cl350 and was recently given a cb360 basketcase. i am really impressed by the look of the 360 frame, the lack of a center post among other things. i'd like some opinions and advise in reguards to putting my 350 motor in this frame as well as a comparison of how each frame handles.

the 360 frame is better, but heavier. i have seen 360 motors shoved into 350 frames, so im guessing the reverse can be done. but im not 100% on that.

i picked up the 360 frame today and was pleased to see that it is a cj360t. i tried to fit the bottom end of my 350 engine in it to see how well they mate up and while the lower rear brackets match up the lower front will have to be modified and the top tube will have to be cleaned up in order for the top end to clear it.

looks like i'll be riding the 350 frame for a while as i sort this all out.
