Need to pay off those credit cards after christmas?

I need parts for my '73 CB350

-Swingarm Bushings
-Rear Brake shoes
-New Cam Gear
-New Chain
-New Rear Sprocket
-Valve stem seals

I also have some questions

the spacer on my rear sprocket seems to be too thin and the gear has some play in it. Is that supposed to be free floating? and if not, does a new gear come with a new washer?

If I buy a 750 fork http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=35592&item=2449712158, I need a bigger disk rotor... do I need a new wheel too or will the rotor fit my 350 wheel and will my 350 brake caliper work on this as well?
I think thats it... happy new year

swingarm bushings suck. have a machinist make you up some oilite or bronze ones. its not much more, if it is, and you'll be giving youre money to a person who needs it more than honda. always support your local craftsman. and, it'll be a nicer job. i have old rear brake shoes if you want them. (the list didnt say new) i dont know why youd want old ones though.

when you get the new cam gear, be sure to get new bolts for it. they are special and make sure they go into the correct hole. one has a shoulder, the other does not. dont fuck this up!

if you degrease (not degrasse) that rear spacer and roll your bike, you can hear it clink around. this is normal. the never fit snuggly and i dont think they were ever designed to. dont worry about it.

as far as i know, none of the 350 font disk stuff will work on the 750. the rotor is smaller and a different rivet pattern. definintely look for a 750 wheel. i think the 550 will work too. but dont quote me on that, the spacing maybe be different. its been a while since ive screwed with that stuff now. get the 750 disk wheel. you'll be amazed at the power it has. you'll also have to drop the tubes in the trees to keep from looking like a chopper. maybe an inch. you'll love the difference it makes though.

those forks are nice looking. and the brake carriers are there.

the 750/550 wheel is 19". they both have a six bolt hub versus the four bolt hub with 18" rim on 350/350f/400f. not sure about the 360 though. I would guess it's the same too.

I like to be kept greased at all times

i'll be in my shop, never been to elkridge. dont even know where it is! if youre on the 95 corrider through baltimore, im easy to get to.
if youre comming down 83 from pa, my shop is right off of 83 at the very very end.
feel free to stop by, theres not alot interesting going ont here now, but i'll be there if youd like to meet, grab lunch and or just say hi.

feel free to give me a call at the shop if and when you get near town. i can show you some really stupid movies of aaron and some of jeremy crashing. not really....the best one of jeremy crashing was posted here a while back.

anyway...shop number is

im at

808 low street
baltimore

i have a fullsize red chevy pick up with racing sticks on the back window. if you stop by, look for that and ring the bell in the side lot of 808 low. my truck will probably be parked right next to it. there is a small sign with jcwoodworks with the bell mounted to it.

410.752.4886

i should be around a good part of the day.

i only have some stock 350 tube clip-ons left. sorry. pro-flo.com has the best deals on clipons ive found. and they are nice enough guys and support the vintage race scene.

i dont know what to tell you about the valve seals. if you come by the shop, you can see how i fitted up my bigger trees and tubes onto my racebike. yours will go on the same way. if youre curious.


you can also look at my hotrod 175.....just dont tell aaron anything about it....


when you say "controls...all of my electrics on one side" what do you mean??

I got sick this morning and didnt leave till later. But its done. I have the fork, the wheel and the disk, I just hope the caliper fits. the chain and sprokets are waiting for me at the shop and as far as I have researched, there are no valve stem seals. alls I gotta do is put all the shit on and im done (till I can afford tires and clip-ons and make the seat of course)

shit, ya know, the rear sprocket is rubber mounted, if i remember correctly . or cushdrive. the spacer will clink around, but you might want to check the rubbers that the sprocket mounts to since youve got it all apart. ive never replaced these in any of my bikes, and since they are rubber, they are probably expensive, but if they are rotted, it could be an issue. im just mentioning it since i reread the original post. but the spacer will definitely clink around. if there is excessive play in the sprocket, it will lead to chain wear and the front sprocket wearing too. they are rubber mounted though, so its not an entirely tight fit.

later
