    1971 CL / CB build by a first timer

    Picked up a 1971 CL 350 with a working 1971 CB 350 engine. Currently in parts as it needs to be cleaned. My plan is to clean it up and put it together for the summer then ride if hopefully. In the winter pull it apart again if needed and perhaps paint the frame. I have a lot of KM riding bikes, but very little working on them. I will put it together as stock and perhaps mod it if things go well. Here are a few pics to get things started. It came with the original tool kit and owners manual which I think was cool. I think everything is there, I just need to clean and put things back together for now. About 11K on the bike and engine.

    Bike snowed in the shed so I started cleaning the engine and got my new battery in.

    Bolts for the engine mount and exhaust were very rusted, wasn't sure they could be re used. After a few days with a light brush and CLR they are looking at lot better. The threads in all are now good, just one bolt that seems damaged so I will find a replacement.

    I see your nice looking exhaust and think that wow, you have a lot of opportunities with this purchase. I like my CL450K6 having had a 305 Scrambler years back plus even a 125 twin with a type one crank that came through the Canal Zone, scrambler as well.

    Looked at your pictures before but didn't notice until now that not only is your speedo in mph, but both of your gauges are in better than average shape for the age. The usual is for the redline area to be terribly faded and though yours isn't bright red, it's still pretty nice. Good for you - mine were far worse, which is why I looked for a refurbed set (which were from Canada!)

    Today we learned how to take off the rear wheel and to prop up the center stand first so there is enough room to get the tire out.
