    Dad's 1975 CB360T rebuild

    Hi folks, thought it was time to post some pictures of the project I've been working on (off and on) since winter of 2007. My dad bought this bike from a co-worker in summer of 1987. I think he rode it twice, parked it...and that was that. It sat outside for the next 20-odd years. I'm living in the house where it was stored (in the back yard) and decided I didn't have enough to do on weekends. So far I've torn everything down, powdercoated the frame, and am now starting to get the rust off everything, figure out which components are still working and what's toast...and take it from there. Looks like many of you have been on a similar journey!

    UPDATE: here's some more 'before':

    That has got to be one of the best "before" pictures I've seen. Going to have to paint it green when your done in honour of the vegetation. Look forward to seeing you progress through it.

    I for the life of me can't understand how people can let perfectly good motorcycles sit and rot away. How could one not want to ride a bike that they own? I used to see this all the time when I delivered out in the countryand I always wanted to drag the poor things home and fix them. Once I actually did buy an old Yamaha enduro for $25 and gave it to a friend of mine.
    Good on you for taking the inititave on this one! You should preserve that vine and hang it up in the garage or something

    Welcome to the board, rlieu.
    I'm hoping to see that thing on the road pretty soon. I'm just a bit south of you, in Albany.

    The worse they are to begin with, the better they look in the end. Good luck on your project!

    Thank you gentlemen, for the kind words of encouragement. Here are some more pictures. This has gone in fits and starts, and I tend to get alot done in a week or so, then it sits awhile when some other household emergency/activity takes over my attention for awhile. I originally envisioned a complete stock restoration (similar to Leethal's AWESOME, inspiring work) then after a year, considered a cafe racer. I have finally settled on something somewhere in the middle, with a stripped down bike that's simple and straightforward, similar to these Danish builders' bikes: http://www.wrenchmonkees.com

    This has been alot of fun and a constant reminder to breathe and be patient!
