    what's the ID for the brake shoes?

    looks like a smaller displacement Honda

    CL350 K4 - Cafe build done waiting on final assembly
    CB350 K0 - Full restoration w/Hondaline bags & fairing
    SL350 K2 - Bubba Shobert flat track build on deck

    ASSUMING a 15 mm axle, it roughly SCALES to a ~165 mm hub (drum ID) and that would be a small twin..... A CD200 perhaps....

    This also assumes I am reading the date stamp correctly as: 81 (1981) dot 4 (April) dot 19 (19th)

    EXACT drum ID would be helpful.......

    Thanks for the replies. Axle is 15mm but no brake shoes to help id. 240mm overall diameter and 180mm internal.

    Date Stamp guess is as above - it's pretty hard to read.

    IF it's 180 mm, and our date stamp guess is correct, then it's from the "economy" model 250 to 400 cc bikes (like the US version CB 400 T1 for instance)......

    IF by chance the year is 61.... It could be from an early CL 72 which used 180mm brakes ( IIRC )....

    We DO know it had the speedo drive contained in the brakeplate as the notches for the drive tabs are visible.....

    180 mm drums were used on such a wide variety of bikes in the 250 cc to 400 cc range that without a part number, we are just guessing....

    Sometimes, Steve, your knowledge floors me.
    1979 CM400T (rider),
    1979 CM400T (resting)
    1980 CM400T (just picked up in pieces)
    1981 CM400T (in surgery receiving transplant)
    1982 CM450 (donor engine for 81)
    1982 CB450 (parts bike)
    1985 VT1100C (rider)

    Past rides: Vincents, Triumph, BSA's, Suzuki's, Twingle, Corgy, others.

    Remember, today is the tomorrow we worried about yesterday.
    My chest fell, but, fortunately, my belt caught it.
    I don't know everything, nor, have I met the one who does.

    Maybe just guessing - but that's some damn good guessing all the same. Thanks for taking the time to reply everyone.

    Looks pretty similar:

    Edit - Happy to have this moved to the correct section - I assumed it was from larger bike.
