I've determined that the CB750 forks with the CB350 stem is the way to go, that's pretty choice, but I was wondering what wheel I can use in the front? I want to stick with a drum brake for "the look". Is there a better setup? What bike makes a good drum donor wheel? I really don't want to attempt to lace a drum to a different rim, so the entire assembly would be best, I think.
18's front and back for many reasons but I'm not going to explain. Mostly cause I think its looks stupid but more importantly you wont find as many options for a rear 19 tyre. Drop the front in the trees or get taller rear shocks.quote:
If I toss an 18" wheel on the front, and a 19" wheel on the back, will this reduce my rake (an improve handling?) I want the bike to have a more aggressive, leaning forward look, so is this a option? Should I get a taller rear suspension on the back? Will doing this kinda thing destroy the handling and get me killed?
By Jeremy tank. He's poor and its too nice to race with.quote:
And the question that's on every newbie's mind: Where do I get THE TANK? Keeping with the low cost theme, the really nice alloy tanks just aren't going to be an option. Is there any other more common bikes that have tanks that will be larger and cafesque on the smaller 350? Perhaps a tank off of a jap 1000ccer? Buhler? I've looked around and found a couple that look ok, but haven't seen any in person (or any pictures).
Take the starter out and use the kick. Really though you can plug the whole and it will be fine. The electrics I would leave the battery, but I've heard people running stock ignition who run capacitors love them.quote:
The electrics are another area I have some question about. I'd like to part ways with the battery. I only need to run the headlight and brake light and the motor itself. I'd like to take the starter off and only use the kick. Is this possible? What kind of options do I have? I'd also like to convert to some sort of optical ignition as well? What all gets replaced in this kind of setup? And links?
Exhaust? Will this work on a 350? http://www.motorcycleproshop.com/detail.asp?product_id=01-0203
is this a good exhaust? I'd like to get one where the pipe is swept up a little higher. Does anyone know of a better source?
I'm not sure just cause the picture throws me off, but not Jack me off. Call Hutchinson Cycle and ask Don if he'd order you a Mac exhaust for your twin.
