Gord, Nice job. Seems there are a few of us here that like the indoors better than a cold garage. Although I don't think my wife would have allowed me to use the living room. :lol:

Matt

Thanks Matt, and yeah I'm spoiled now for working in the house, it's just me and my dog and sometimes my son so why not :D

Very nice, needs a smaller tail light though. Great job.

Thanks and I agree about the tail light, this one is off an old xl 100 beater dirt bike I have, it'll do to get it on the road but I'll be looking for a change :D

Sounds like me. Me, my dog and my son. After my divorce I looked at the back patio door, the large laundry room it led to and thought-- why not? Still, it took awhile before I felt comfortable. I kept waiting to get yelled at.

BTW-- I really like your 350. Simple, clean and uncluttered.

What year is that 350?

That would be a '73 G-model...
I think from what I've learned so far (just new with this bike) it's the only disc brake model and I think I read too it was the only yr for purple, maybe on this site :D

Correct on both counts, it was sold concurrently in '73 with the CB K4.
It also had chrome fork ears and rubber fork boots.
They retained the 18" front wheel, one of the few disk brake models that didn't use a 19" front.

That is sharp! Where did you get the seat?

Did you have trouble with the clubmans and the brake reservoir?

Thanks and no problems with the master cyl., I did lower the signals and shorten the arms. And it came without a seat so I made this from whatever I could find around the house, scraps of plywood, rigid foam, foam for the seat cushion is from an old personal floatation vest and the covering came from an old leather jacket, only thing I bought was fibre glass resin and cloth, it's hinged and locks down like the original would have.

Nice '73-G ! Did you repaint or is that the factory purple? Are the stripes painted or are they a decal?

Can you post up some close ups of the seat? I'm thinking of doing something similar and didn't want to cut up my seat. Great job on the build.
