its funny you guys mention all of those things, because i actually HAVE all of those things already. i had the number plates painted on. i only need one for the front but i got it already. belly pan, chain, catch can, rearsets, schitzu, pipes, and all the cables are on the bench. ill give you a hint, one of the major components to the missing part is leaning against the cabinet in the backround of the 3rd picture. its black, round, and made by dunlop.

JC,

I just left my garage and mine is in almost the same state as yours. Just missing a front wheel.

Know where I could get one?

Joe, I think Aaron may have a front wheel if you need one.
Hope this helps. Other than that it looks really good. I wish my racebike was anywhere near as cleanly done as yours.

Ken

PS Aaron, where is Joe's wheel?

my new bike is at the end of about a 3 year build. it took along time to get all the parts i wanted in the condition i wanted. i dont weld, i never machined anything before in my life, never even used a metal lathe. but ive had alot of really good help and guidance and have had alot of time to look at other real nice bikes. (like craigs, aarons and johnny b's). ive also been able to figure out what ive liked on my old race bike, and what i didnt like. so making those changes has been alot of fun. i also am fortunate enough to have a guy like chris m at my beckon call. not only is he real fast, but can definitely build the fastest cb350's around. (for real) and hes got me setup with a donor ride for the past year. some time ask him about me using the parting bead on the lathe though! im not new at building cb350's, but having guys around who are as good as chris, ross and the guys here makes figuring things out no more trial and error.

Nothing like have a bike that's the way you want it... racing is more fun when you actually, really like your bike. It does make difference.

hell yeah! jb makes some sweet parts no doubt. buy his shit for sure. there are soo many parts from people from this list and general uscra membership. its frightening how much stuff i had to rely on guys from up north for. it would have never gotten done! Monkey did all the glass work, just so everyone knows. there is also a matching fender.

Steve does about the best paint work for the money I've ever seen. Yeah you can spend $4000 and get something nicer on a Harley. But Steve does the best race bike paint out there.
