Just thought I should let you know I am still in the game. I had been swamped with work for a while. The basket-case CB350 was just not going to make it. My friend Brad found a '76 Honda CB360 for cheap, and talked me into buying it, and starting over with a running bike. Of course I immediately had to make some changes. I put on a CB500T tank. It has the style I wanted, and has about twice the capacity as the 360 tank. The 500 tank was badly dented. Long story; my fancy pin-welder-dent-puller idea went south, when I popped a hole in the tank, on the first yank. Brad was a big help in welding that for me. Last weekend, I layed-down some mud and then some candy-apple red.
The seat and rear fender didn't turn out like I wanted, but it will do for now. I think I'm going to like the rear-set shifter. I hooked up the fuel-lines (no leaks) and it started on the second kick. Still have some work to do, but it's do-able. Your post reminded me I need to get the tags and insurance. I should be ready to ride soon.
Just a couple weeks before the OMS kicks off! I've got a couple loose ends on the kz400 to take care of, but nothing that can't be done in an afternoon. It's going to be a real humdinger! Also, don't forget to check out ozarkmountainscrable.blogspot.com for any further info needed.
