Extending a CB360 brake stay
Not all the jobs needed to modify a motorcycle are really all that interesting and extending the CB360’s brake stay to accommodate the extended swing arm shows this. However, the prep and clamping that this took I think is a good example of how to work with something round. Maybe this will give you some ideas the next time you need to do something similiar.
4. Using a v-block to clamp up the first side to tack it in place. V-block are really helpful with lining up round pieces. I left a 1/16″ gap between the pieces so that I could get the proper penetration with the weld.

I love the old performance modification articles. This guy Don Vesco looks like the man and apparently knows his shit when it comes to modifying 2-stroke bikes. If anyone reading this has any old enduro/dirt bike magazines from the 60’s or 70’s they want to sell, i’m interested.
