Unhappy 1k Cb kitty build

Here's my entry to the 1k build off:

'72 cb 350 as she sits


date yo


and parts, the stock front end is in the garage.


motor is in the back of my truck still.




plans are kick only, battery elimination, headlight/taillight, suspension from my old katana.

so this front end


this rear end


i also have a spare kat frame to help mockup the new upper shock mount


and my kat fighter will hopefully be getting this rear end



total cost so far $300 for the cb. suspension i had, so $0. it'll need new carbs, so i plan on $370 for those. gonna sell the old cb suspension, wheels, fenders, filter covers, etc.

Default Re: 1k Cb kitty build

so for the front swap. i ordered new seals, and bearings from allballs

new upper race in. it sticks out a tad more than the stock.



only by 8mm or so. btw the katana upper dust seal covers it completely, so i'm not worried.

also ordered a new lower bearing (the stock cb has individual ball bearings, which fell out and disapeared forever)
the kat stem is perfect too, no shimming or spacers needed.



need to take the ass off my fighter next to swap onto this beast. hopefully i'll have a roller tomorrow.

This looks like it could be a really cool build. Especially if you swap that swing arm on it! Take lots of pix and keep us posted.

First oopsie. Last year I ground the brake line tabs off the fork lowers. I'll have to figure something out.

I can't post pics because the photobucket mobile app is retarded. But i'll do it later from the pc.

The Kat swingarm is wider then the cb, so the subframe down tubes will be getting cut and widened. The Kat swinger doesn't have enough material to shave off.

Need to locate center and cut a chunk outta the Kat pivot tube. (Hope I don't fuck it up)

here's the top of the stem close up. the suzi dust seal covers the 8mm stickup.


and the missing tabs on the lowers



and i have the rear swingarm marked, and ready to chop tomorrow


the cb swinger has a gap of 112mm, so i'm cutting the kat at 120mm, the excess will be taken up by some bushings. the bushings are neccessary since the swinger will be rubbing on the insides now. (pics tomorrow will explain better)

also the kat rear tire is centered in relation to the kat pivot tube, the cb has a 3mm offset to the right. Justin has confirmed that the 3mm difference won't be noticeable.

Chopped the pivot tube, punched out the old bearings


Mocked with the old bolt


Bought a half inch bolt with a slew of half inch washers and fender washers to better hold it in place


And now the fun bit. Locating mounts for the linkage and shock. Which will undoubtedly require grinding the stamped seam on the cb backbone and welding it back up.


So far not too difficult.

You shouldn't have to touch the seams. Weld some tabs coming off the frame and box the tabs to the seam. Is it not that simple?

When I started postioning the shock and linkage, the coil would strike the frame seam or the swingarm. I have the seam about 90% gone and welded right now.
