Hello there, My name is Brian and I am embarking on a grand mission of building my first bike. I was able to pick up a very reasonably priced ($350) CL360 last summer (May 2014) and have begun the time-staking process of dismantling the bike. The bike was completely original along with a dealer installed sissy bar. Even the rubber was original. The odometer reads a little over 10K miles and the title was last registered in 1982.
There was a lot to be desired as far as cosmetics is concerned, with a nice coat of red rust over the majority of the bike. I have attached images of what the carbs and fuel tank looked like upon closer examination. I ended up spending the better part of two weeks cleaning the carbs to get them as good as humanly possible without rebuilding them I did however run down to the local Honda shop to get a pair of new gaskets. The tank was soaked with rust-buster and small steel media and shaken for around 5 hours. There is still some deep pits that I could not fix, but I am hoping that will not hinder the performance too badly. The petcock was shot, so I recently bought a replacement from Amazon along with a new gasket for the fuel filler cap.
After getting things apart a bit more I found the following will need some attention:
Broken push and pull throttle cables
Front brake drum stuck
Air filters fully clogged
(Passenger Side?) Ignition coil wire deteriorated
Seat cushion needs replaced
