  1. Ryan's CL360 Build

    Project Logs
    Hey everyone, I was slacking on creating a project thread, but I'm finally here. Picked up my first bike, this running and driving '74 CL360 with 27k miles about a month ago and have been taking my time tearing it apart and learning as I go. My goal for this bike is to restore it to all it's...
  2. Need help with steering bearing for my custom build

    Frame, Suspension and Steering
    I bought this project bike that came with a girder front end. The title says its a 72 Honda CB360 even though it has cl350 motor on it. The diameter of the girder shaft is 7/8" all the way down. I can't find a steering bearing that fits both the outer diameter of the stock honda neck and also...
  3. Taylor's 1982 CB450sc Build

    Project Logs
    Ok, first post for this thread. Here we go. Got the bike Spring 2017. Didn't run when I got it, figured out some electrical issues, cleaned the carbs, tried a new battery, replaced some fuses, and thanks to the folks here, got it idling roughly. The whole plan for getting this bike was to do a...
  4. 1976 Honda cb360 Build

    Project Logs
    I recently bought a 1976 Honda cb360 that seemed to be in decent shape. It does not run but has good compression. The wiring seems to be a little messy and may need to be checked out. The first thing I am going to do is rebuild the carbs and see if that gets her running. The previous owner had...

    Hey all. I haven't ridden in approximately 10 years. I use to have a Honda Shadow, but have recently purchased a 1975 CB360T project bike that I am looking to build into a cafe racer / scrambler. It's currently in pieces, replacement parts ordered and the engine is out getting cleaned up. I...

    Hello HondaTwins, I'm a new rider from Los Angeles and I'm currently in the process of building my very first bike. My Dad and I are working on it together and I'd like to use this site as a platform to log our progress (if that's okay with ya'll:D). So without further ado... Here she is in...
  8. CB400N rebuild/customization

    Project Logs
    Hi there! Firstly I am pretty new to customizing motorbikes. I used to work on my Ducati Monster 620 a lot and got into the mood of actually building/customizing something myself. A few days ago I bought a 1979 Honda CB400N. It was standing in a shed for quite a while and I want to totally take...
  9. Santacruiser's 1971 CB450K

    Project Logs
    So, this post is starting about halfway through my "restoration" project, but I thought it would be fun to share my progress. This bike used to be my uncle's, and it's the one he rode when carving up the winding roads of central Ohio with my dad when I was just a kid. Everything was there when I...
  10. 1975 Honda CB360 Engine Revving Very High Right After Starting

    Fuel Supply and Carburation
    Hello All, I am putting the finishing touches on my CB360 build, and I started it again for the first time last night. I kicked it over a few times and it fired right up, however, the engine raced up to a high RPM immediately and I had to kill the engine before it over-revved. The motor is...
  11. My First Project - 1978 Hawk CB400 TII

    Project Logs
    So I just picked up my first project, a ’78 Hawk 400. I grew up racing dirtbikes in New England but this is my first road bike and my first project. After hiding in the shadows, seeing all the awesome stuff everyone else has been doing on these forums I decided to keep a log of everything I do...
  12. So, I bought a bike in boxes - 73' CB360 Build

    Project Logs
    I love Hondas. Always have. Owning my own Honda CB is something I have wanted for a few years now and I guess you can say my dream has come true, in a very misconstrued, backwards, ironic, kind of way. Once I was financially able to buy a CB I started casually scouring craigslist for a deal on...
  13. 1973 CB450 - First Bike, First Build. (Pictures)

    Project Logs
    After much lurking it's time for my contribution! So, a little about me: - my first bike - my first build - small handful of mig welding & fabrication experience - 24 yrs old - engineering student (access to some cool tools) I purchased this 1973 Honda CB450 in March 2013 for $800. Took a few...
  14. A Build from Parts??

    Project Logs
    I'd been looking for some time, without success, to find a 1971 CB175 K5 Super Sport worthy of restoration and haven't been able to find one. So, after thinking that it might well cost me $500 to $800 to buy a non-running bike worthy of restoration, and probably another $2,000 (or more) to...
