Found this today

Picking it up tomorrow. Going to be a fun little cafe racer project :D

$500.00 CND



She has only 18,000 km on it and she runs perfectly!

i'm very excited about this build as I have always had an interest in cafe bikes.

hells yeah!



lot's of damn 350/360's on this board now
Gonna be at least one more. My wife is inhereting my first bike from my dads buddy that has it.... it's a 350, and she's gonna rebuild and do all the work herself.

SUBZERO- sweet find. You're gonna have a blast. These bikes are the epitome of FUN.

Sometimes the best things in life are the simplest. You will have so much fun with that. Cant wait to see what you do. Are you doing it on the cheap or have big plans ?
I feel with cafe bikes less is more. its going to cost a bit to do her up but im not going to go crazy with money spending.

Nice find! :rock:



As MPLS said, these bikes are so much fun. I'm sure you have seen the video's of mine, not to mention my avatar of it being wheelied past a Dodge Viper. :D


The only things I found these bikes really benefit from instantly is a stronger brake caliper/master on the front and slightly taller gearing to keep the "buzz" out of the chassis at highway speeds. Otherwise, the CB twins are a near perfect bike.


There really is nothing quiet like putting the hurt on your sportbike buddies ego's with apex speed. Not to mention my tired little 360 ran with a DRZ400SM stoplight to stoplight in a WFO battle of high rpm shifts and forceful throttle application. Then later the same day I was giving my buddies XR650L the same treatment on the same stretch of road.

Outdated? Sure. Outgunned by bigger and more modern bikes? No way.

Picked her up about 4 hours ago and waisted no time pulling it apart.



she is going to sit like this for a week or so untill I accumulate some supplies and materials to start the build up process.

here is a list of what I plan to do.

-Cafe bubble single seat
-smaller sigs
-paint frame and upper engine
-polish lower engine/gear box
-new digital round gauge/tach
-plastic coat inside of tank
-paint tank
-take Denvers mom out for a date.
-new handle grips
-new break/clutch leavers
-lower headlight
-flip handle bars.
-new air filters
-and anything else I may think of.

As for mechanical work I have no list because i still need to see what needs to be done with it once I get a chance to change the oil and kick her over. Hopefully not much.

Very excited about this! :D:D:D
