    Hello everyone! I've been on here a long time now and realized I'd never posted an intro, so here goes! I bought this non running CB360T when i was living in Cali a few years back with the intentions of just doing the bare minimum to get it running. At the time I had absolutely zero...
  4. Electrical Issues
    Hello all. New to the forum, new-ish to bikes, ultra-new to wrenching and electrical work. I have a '74 CB 125 that I've upgraded it to 12v. I'm keeping all the stock parts, but just for fun I'm switching out some things to give it more of a "brat" look (with no irreversible modifications) -...

    Hello friends. I wanted to share my first project close to the end. A little background history: My mechanic friend told me that some years ago he had sold one of these bikes to a friend, and he sold it back because he did not use the bike. I wish I had a picture of it before the work, but...

    My old boss started this project and I picked it up as an almost done basket case for $500 in $100 a month payments. I finished it to this point but have plans for paint, maybe a small front fender, and custom waterjet or cnc mill tank emblems. Thanks for looking.
