Couldn't resist....

Well, I think I have a sickness. I am S L O W L Y bringing a 74 CB360 back to life, and I mean SLOW. During the process I am constantly on the lookout for other CB's just to see what is out there. I'm under the assumption that I may just find that clapped out but running gem in the rough to help me along with my restoration journey.

So last week I saw a 72 CB350 for sale not far from where I live and I had the time to go look at it. What the hell, a good way to kill a morning. Unfortunately I liked it more than I thought I would. Sooooo.... I picked it up on Tuesday morning. I have to go and get my title transfered tomorrow. All I need now is a plate and I'm ready to roll. I confess, I rode it around the hood tonight with no plate... What the hell, I'm and old guy on an old bike, I think I can get away without too much trouble.

Riding this bike was WAY different than any of my other bikes and those drum brakes are the bomb. Tons 'O' fun. Anyway, here she is.





And... my ever growing collection of junk. I'm not looking forward to trying to cram all this stuff come winter.



Yep, wife thinks I'm losing my mind.

After many years and many dreams I have realized my goal of riding in all 50 states!

Now the rest of the world!

Thanks.. I just wanted to pick up something that ran from the early 70's to convince myself that putting work into my collection of junk-tastic CB360's is worth it. I'm thinking yes!

This is a first for me. Upright seating, low forward and big footpegs, brakes that are about as useful as Fred Flintstones and an ON SWITCH for the headlight.

It has the most "character" of anything I have ever ridden to date. I can't wait to get a plate for it and buzz around town on warm summer nights. It will bring back memories from when I was two.

The only downside to owning more than one bike is the damn upkeep. It's always oil changes, filters, tires, brake pads, chains and sprockets, bulbs, fuses, and on and on. I guess it keeps me out of the strip clubs.

After many years and many dreams I have realized my goal of riding in all 50 states!

Now the rest of the world!

Anytime Jim. While you are here would you mind washing/waxing a couple?

Nope, wouldn't mind a bit. I like riding, working on and cleaning bikes. You can't keep me away that easy.

Thanks. took it out for about an hour tonight. It needs a little carb tuning to make it run "just right" but it runs pretty decent right now. A little stumble here and there, nothing I can't live with.

It looks pretty good in person. The mirrors and exhaust are not original, and the tank has been re-painted, but everything else is factory. I even have the tool kit!

Thanks. It is amazing how much fun you can buy for very little money these days. I just paid the insurance for this bike today.... $104 for the year. Can't beat that.

Keep you away? Dude, I'm serious. Get your butt over hear and get to work. The keys are in the bikes... A good mechanic will have to test out his work to make sure the bike is road worthy.
