I just got this bike. It runs but still waiting on a few parts for it. I wanna ride it soon. Waiting for a set of NOS mirrors I found to get here as well as an exhaust system. The muffler was full of rust holes and I could not find one for it so, I bought a 2 into 1 MAC system for the CB360. It is back ordered til mid-May so I have some waiting to do. Meanwhile I am working on cleaning it up. Some yahoo painted the engine, exhaust, and wheels with silever paint!!!! I have the rear wheel rim cleaned up already and it is nice shiny chrome.

I like that blue..mine will probably end up a color similar. I have a chrome front fender for that in the parts section, should you want to change it. I want to ride now, but my exhaust is backordered as well... :(
I went with aftermarket black mirrors. The less I have to keep shiny, the better!

Too bad I did not find this site before I bought the after-market exhaust. I would have taken ya up on it!

OK I think I will start a thread in the projects forum.

Gotta take more pics tho.

I figured I may as well update this post as well. The bike has come a long way since I got it.

I just got the speedo cable replaced and the speedo has settled down (no more bouncy!)

Still waiting for the MAC exhaust to come....(I hate back-orders!)
My new coils will be here next week. ( I am upgrading to the XS650 coils as suggested here)

I took the strap off the seat....(got tired of feeling it across my arse when riding!) It aint original anyway so, don't bother me. I want a rider. Not looking for a spot on restore.
