I have access to a 78 CB360 that is fairly complete and access to all the parts I need to do something with it. My plan is if I do something with this project and resale it. I'd like to maxiumize my effort.

My question is:

1 - run away from this project

2 - Rebuild it as a classic cb360

3 - Rebuild it as a nice cafe racer with disc setup and maybe a cb750 front end on it. (I plan to clean up the engine but leave it stock)

I have access to any part(s) I need to go either way with this project for very limited cost.

What do you folks think????

I'll get some pictures this week. The gas tank is mint inside and about the only thing that it really needs is tender loving hands to clean her up and a new front fender. I didn't have a chance to kick the motor through. I'll be checking this bike out again tomorrow and let you know..

Nevermind my original post, I thought more was missing than just the fender. If its just cleaning it up and such, that'll be the easier route.

nice cafes are expensive to build right. a built right all correct stocker would be a much prettier bike and id bet itd get as much or more than a cafe job.

ok, whats wrong with you? you got an extra ear or somethin?

i seem to be one of the only people here usually rooting for the stocker. I think there are plenty of bikes out there to hack up, why hack up a perfectly nice looking stock bike? they just have a certain appeal to me usually.

I watched a stock cb360 (with bad aftermarket mufflers), about 5000 miles, sell for $2700 on eBay over the winter. In case that helps tip the balance any. I know that's not typical, but I often see 'em go for more than $1500.

It's too early in your relationship to worry about that. You need to get a place. Buy some stuff, really nice expensive stuff "together". That is the only sure fire way to lure the alien that controls her mind out into the open.


Just kidding;)

i'll take that 360 out of your garage for ya!

i don't want super expensive stuff. i prefer building things. and spending the money on bikes, and tools, and track days. and stuff for the kitchen, you know, for baking. and the occasional pretty dress. also, no fancy presents, please. and forget that valentine's day exists. a flower picked on a nice summer day is better than that singing teddy bear, or a box of assorted chocolates that all taste pretty equally bad.

ok i'm done stealing your thread, and with my girly rant.
