So… I’ve met Clint a few times. He’s a cool dude. Kills it riding trails. Even if you don’t like bmx… you’ll enjoy this vid. It’s mainly about Clint’s “living-free” lifestyle. He has an old Airstream trailer he lives out of and tows around the country with his veggie-diesel van. He travels for free due […]
I don’t know about you, but I spend a decent amount of time looking at tumblr’s. Specifically “fashion/design/lifestyle” tumblr’s. One that I really like is called the Pursuit Aesthetic. They rarely have cycles on it, but when they do, they’re normally good ones. This cb350 really stood out to me. love love love that exhaust […]
Cast & Salvage built this cb350 for Aaron Buckley. Bunch of custom fabrication on it. It’s pretty cool. Adam and I went out and had some fun with it today. Little vid at bottom.
Over the weekend this guy Sterling showed up at Cast & Salvage on his CB350 on his way from Nashville heading towards Maine. A serious trip for 70’s CB350. The bike had some serious oil leaks and needed some tuning up which was the reason for the visit. We pushed off some other work and […]
Ricky and I have spent the past few weeks building this CB350. It’s a popular CB to modify which made it fun to try and make it unique with our style. We’ve finishing up the last little bit of fabrication work so I took some photos of some of the parts we designed/made so you […]
Chris has an awesome write up of the past couple days he spent in Ohio with our buddy Aaron Buckley and his cb350. Read the story HERE on his site ‘HOT DAY FOR WHISKEY’
..are the tits. Just finished giving this CL350 a full tune-up.
Last Sunday we decided to take a trip down to Ocean City to spend the day relaxing in the sun. My lady Juli shot these photos while riding on the back of my 550… Chris led us on some nice roads through Jersey. Kevin roasting the RD smoking out everyone behind us. Ricky’s pull cable […]
Hey everyone, this is Janelle…newest contributor, and new pal/rider with the guys here. I’ve been riding for about a year and a half, as long as I’ve had my 1971 cb350. A couple weeks ago, I decided I should finally start learning about my own bike, and the vintage cycles that I love. I hit […]
Fairmount park is awesome for quickly getting out of the stop and go of the city and onto some wide open roads. Sunday felt like a real spring day so we took advantage. We met some new friends along the way that joined in for a quick ride. Roasting one of my favorite turns in […]
Hey guys, thought I’d share some info on the front end swap I did over the winter on my ’72 CB350. I decided to go this route for a number of reasons, but it started out as just wanting to beef up my fork tube diameter from spaghetti noodle thin 33mm to a sturdy 35mm. […]
I took off work and spent 4 days in the “Jankyington” garage. We burned enough wood to build a house in Kensington, which is to say, a fair amount of wood. Together with the Yerkes brothers, a lifetime supply of Sly Fox and a killer high from aircraft stripper, we had a Martin Luther King […]
I lowered my Head light (thanks to Chris), removed my tach and made a bracket to center my speedo. Looks a lot more compact and clean. Also placed the new tailight which I’m super psyched on. I finished painting a lot of stuff on my bike this weekend. Its going to come together this week […]
… was a rough cookie. He blew the engine, and then bought another engine to swap in. He’s been workin on gettin it together. I rode the cb650 there. Then Ricky showed up.

So… after taking the engine apart it was apparent that we couldn’t diagnose the cylinder head properly. The cb450 in the 70’s has a really weird cylinder head design. Instead of having valve springs, it has what are called “torsion bars” which hit the valve to open it, and also, hit the valve to shut […]
