Nice work - you need to post some pics of it on the track.
Hi there, Just got this one fired up last night. 1971 SL 350 K1 chassis with a 1969 CB 350 engine.
Looks great! Have fun getting it dirty.
Beautiful machine - I love it!

Looks really nice. Do you have any of the original parts left that you didn't use?
No extra parts as I started with a 1972 SL 350 K1 chassis and a 1969 CB 350 Engine I had built for a road race project several years ago.
The SL Chassis has been de-raked to 25 degrees at the steering head by Panther Racing Frames here in Canada.
I've spent the last year and a half gathering new and used dirt track components.
Used dirt track wheels, rear brake caliper all required rebuilding and custom fit to the frame.
The forks are Can-Am 35 mm Betors - again refurbished. These required a custom made steering stem to fit them to the Honda frame and bearing sizes.
Here is a photo of the road racer / street tracker the engine came out of ( which I posted here a few years ago ) I sold the rolling chassis to a local chap who is in the process of making a cafe racer.
i will - first race for me will be July 07. I last raced in 1984 - so it's been awhile . . . LOL
Nice build, I like it! Mind sharing with us how you mounted the CB engine into that frame? Did you make custom spacers, or was it more involved than that? Also, what size rims and tires are you running?
