cb360t build recap

Well this build took longer than expected but I was still able to do it within budget. Unexpected delays were mainly due to spending time tracking down parts that were either missing from the start or to replace ones I had donated to fix Andrew’s cb360t.

Overall, I’m pretty proud of how it turned out and I learned a lot along the way. The intent was to make it as basic as possible with enough room to still fit a skinny lady on the back. It’s a lot of fun to blast around the city on.

The only switch is the key ignition which i built into the battery box.

    Is there a build up ‘thread’ somewhere? I’d really like to see how that seat came together, I’m thinking the exact same thing for my bike, different color, and where did you get that tail light? Does it clamp onto the hoop? I’m trying to design a taillight that would clamp there. One of my favorite bikes.

    Hey john

    I’ll have to see if I took enough pictures of the seat build and make a post out of it. Mainly,I shaped a seat pan out of 16 gauge sheet metal, welded threaded studs to it to mate up to frame brackets I made, sewed a seat cover, and riveted to the seat pan.

    The tail light is off ebay and attaches to a bracket that I weled to the rear hoop.
