I have been reading in the background here for a while. I see people saying to put a 750 front end on the CB350 twin to improve handling. My question is will http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2436548902&category=35592work? I also would like to know if my stock rim tire brake setup will still work. I have the 73 with the disc up front. Thanks for tips. I am going through the bike this winter and checking everything out and improving where I can affordably.

those should work. although i dont know how well with an original disk. you'll have to get them to see. the carriers mught need some work. go with the 750 brake. some of the later ones were dual diskers. they ahve a bigger disk, and bigger pads, so they work really nicely. you might have to drop the tubes in the trees a bit too. but they should work good. not a bad price where it sits now either.

I just got a box of 6 carbs "for a 350" from same seller and do not think I will go with those, but at least I know what I am looking for. The carbs were not bad, just a little worse than I thought from the description.

Hey I have the stock cb350 fork on my bike. The decorative chrome covers on the top parts of the legs were all rusted and it made my bike look like a piece. one bracket was bent making my turn signal all crooked and ghetto and the other one was getting in the way of my brake lever on my new clubman bar. So in a creative fit of rage I tore them off, now I need to mount my headlight back on...
I am about to go to home depot for some inspiration...
got any better ideas? I have a welder and all that jazz so I can easily make something, I just dont know how to do it so it's solid and not totally ghetto

thems the ones. dennis kirk has em too. (i actually meant dennis kirk when i posted that, those cheap places confuse me!!) buy a few sets. they rust really easy. that way you'll have them when they look like crap and you can just change em when youre ready. shitty chrome.

If you're still looking for aftermarket headlamp ears (or want a far better quality version than discussed), check out the ones offered at this website:

http://www.discovolantemoto.com/firstpage.html

Look under the "Lights" section, and scroll down past the first 2 or 3 items and you'll see them listed as "headlight brackets".

They're a bit spendy -- but very high quality and super trick!

I did the same thing you did to your 350 (tear all the bunged-up stock bodywork off the front end) on a '69 CB175 I had some years back. These ears worked perfectly, and really looked the business. As I recall, I had to shim them out with some inner tube rubber on the skinny 175 forks.
And since they are cast aluminum -- no Rustoleum needed! ;>)

No that's not my bike, and that's a 175/200 front brake not a 350 brake... plus mine now has an air scoop. Also mine is cleaner then that filthy turd box.
