Hi Everyone! First post here... Found some awesome threads surfing for ideas for my bike and found some great contributions going on here.

First bike I've owned. I've rode around a bit before on some street and dirt bikes so I'm excited to get this cruiser cruising.

Found this bike on craigslist for a whopping $50. Listed as "Needs Work" by some people moving out of town. PO indicates it has sat for a year but did run a year ago. He said the bike got parked for some military duty and when they returned a week later she'd been vandalized/beaten up. She definitely needs some cosmetic work: Obvious to me is tank is bashed, front left and rear right turn signals, ignition ripped off, seat lock drilled, shifter pedal bent.

Couldn't get it to start initially then my neighbor helped me clean the float bowls and jets. We finally got her to start after she spit some hairball out and brown smoke she'd run but kind of smokey (oil burning?). I've got her to turn over a few times since then and even rode her down the street. Need to curb my desire to cruise while I haven't done general maintenance. I'm sure you have an idea of my excitement of riding. ;)

Goals / Concerns:
- Fuel tank rust, looks clean but I want to put an inline filter on there to ensure no garbage in my carb
- Clean carbs or rebuild carb
- General Maintenance and cleaning.
- Functional and cosmetic repairs.

I'll probably have more questions and believe I've found some answers here already. :)

And for the Images :)

$50 for a titled bike is a steal any day of the week.. Looks like we got another nice rider project coming.. Just be careful not to sink too much into her.

Welcome aboard! :D

I'm thinking if it runs well for less then $500 that'd be excellent.

:idea: I found a 1976 CB360 parts bike for $100 on craigslist. I believe, based on the honda shop manual, that alot of the part will be interchangeable.

Can anyone confirm this for me :?:

From the photos the CB360 may have some parts I need or can use (haven't seen IRL). Based on pricing from bikebandit.com, which had price ideas for unavailable parts, puts me at like $300+. There are a few options in the North Idaho/Spokane, WA that I may be able to find some used.

Anyone know a good spot for parts in US other then bikebandit.com :?:

almost everything but the frame and bodywork of a CB will swap.....Forks, wheels, engine (minus the e-start).... As scarce as these 360 parts are becoming, that would be a good investment.... Steve

servicehonda.com has a lot of OEM parts at better prices than BikeBandit

I you're looking for someting in particular especialy something you are having a hard time finding just ask here. There's a parts wanted section. We got a lot of 360 guys and a few guys with alot of used stuff on hand.

When I've got the time and I see that somebody on the board is looking for something I'll do a little online searching to try and help when I can.

I'm no 360 expert but I would think many parts from the CB would fit - I'm sure the engines would be the same.

Once you find the oem part #, try
cheapcycleparts.com
or
http://www.crotchrocket.com/pages/parts ... Honda.aspx
or
ronayers.com
or
servicehonda.com

These places KILL bikebandits pricing on OEM parts.
For the last several months I've found cheapcycleparts.com to have the best prices, but this seems to change from time to time. Ronayers used to be the lowest price seller. Be sure to factor in the shipping costs when shopping, and order all your parts at once if possible. That 5 or 10$ shipping on one tiny part can really eat up any savings.
