Question about cb350 front end

4187 Views 28 Replies 11 Participants Last post by  hillsy
Hey guys, so I'm new to the forum and new to motorcycles so please don't make fun of me for asking stupid questions haha!

So I've recently picked up a 1973 Honda CB350. One of the things I have been wondering is regarding the front end.
So this is what my bike currently looks like:
Land vehicle Vehicle Motorcycle Motor vehicle Automotive tire

Here is the front end style that I am going for:
Land vehicle Vehicle Motorcycle Car Automotive tire

I was wondering what was done in order to make that front wheel closer to the frame? Was it an entirely new front end, or just a bigger rim/tire, or is it a simple adjustment to the stock forks?
Again, sorry if what I'm asking seems obvious, like I said, I'm new to bikes. I grew up on old trucks. Thank you everyone in advance for the help.

This is easy.

Step 1: Remove the front fender to get more lowering capability.

Step 2: Drop the forks up the triple trees (if possible) until you like the "stance."

Step 3: Relocate the headlight 2-3 inches lower

Step 4: Remove the gauges

Step 5: Remove the sidestand. You won't need it and it will be useless anyway.

Step 6: grow a beard and and head to the nearest starbicks. Bring a brick so you can lean the frame on it.

I should have a wedsite...
