I'm Having a hard time putting a 1976 CB360 back together. The tank was badly rusted so I cleaned it with muriatic acid. Did a great job but it caused a leak near the rear mounting bracket. Leaded that up and found a pin hole leak forward and underneath the tank. fixed that and now its leaking around the badge mount. I have a 1975 tank that is in nice shape but it is wider where the front mounting brackets meet the forward cushions. Any suggestions?

Thicker? Can I extend the shafts that hold the cushions?

I suppose you could weld a short extension to the ends. I'd just try Gorilla-gluing a rubber extension to the end of the cushion and see if that works first. How much extension do you need on each side?

Got it done

It looks like it will work without a lot of trouble. IMG_20171029_195608475[1].jpg '76 with a '75 tank. I have the '75 side covers to go with it.
Now to get a 550 tank to fit a 360. IMG_20171107_210859906[1].jpg
