Honda CB360 Cafe' Racer

So I got this bike for real cheap and want to make it a Cafe Racer.. It ran and everything worked on it. Until... I did this..


Trying to get the hand controls off I had to cut the wires that ran through the bars up to the controls. I cut them so I could technically get it all back together if I needed but they are all beat and broken so I probably won't..

Looking at all the wiring on the bike I'm thinking of just ripping it all out and redoing it. I'm pretty good at wireing I've just never messed with a bike before and am a little gun shy about ripping it all out...

Also the cables going to the levers are a little complicated.. I'm having a hard time getting them all disconnected as well. Any tricks here?

Know of any cheap hand controls with cable brake or should I just use what I got and try to make it all work?

I've been wanting to do a cafe bike for a while now. The wiring should be really simple on that, I say rip it out and start over.

Stupid fucker took a deep chunk out of my finger so I took the grinder to it..


Here's 6' 220#, at a bad camera angle, with my feet on the passenger pegs. I think I'm gonna move them up about 4 inches and it'll be just right.


Here's 6' 2" 155# with his feet on the front peg area.. Better angle.

And before I went in for the night I had to do a quick little cut and tape mock up.. Gotta get that tank down in the back but I think it's gonna be pretty tits..

It's a tank from a '76 KE100. I like it cause it's a lot smaller than the 360 tank.

I have one at home that's bone stock if you need any measurements, pics, whatever.

Some inspiration for you...

If you had taken the headlight out you'd find all the wiring from the bars is connected with bullet connectors, easy to disconnect and pull through the bars.

Look around here, it's not specifically a 2 cylinder forum but there are a lot of knowledgeable people there. http://forums.sohc4.net/
