If you are talking about a shock. I need something that is no longer than 12' in length. I would like something from a sport bike with a Reservoir.

Inners first!

Inner - Outer
1960936 10152327991500850 988407988 o

DOOOHHHHH!!!! Inner Outer Spoke pattern wont fit clear the rotors. Had to take it apart and do inner - inner. Which was a pain in the ... But it does look much cleaner!

Rear is done and also test mounted. I'll get some pictures of how she looks right now. Need to find a set of tires after I get the wheels trued. Install the motor back in the bike and take the bike to the chopping block!

I have Dave1fc painting my tank too. Very exciting!

Wow, awesome progress! You might have to teach me how to build a wheel, I was contemplating sending it out...but it looks achievable.

You're getting close to getting it fired up, are you redoing the old wiring harness or building new?

Yea its not hard, Bring a six pack of beers over and I'll help you get it.

I need to have my wheels balanced and have bands installed. I have some old spare 120 tires that I will put on there until i get new ones, that way I can trailer this bad boy.

I got my shock in. its from a 2011 GSXR 750. It looks great. And I cant wait to start the process.

Looking good, keep us posted on the progress. I have an orange CB350 like yours, wanted to modify it, but it was just too pretty to do so.

The GSXR shock that I picked up was too long and we were unable to find a way to mount it.
I went ahead and bought a swingarm from a CL350 (100% drop in replacement), because they were about 2 inches longer, but that still wasnt enough room.
I gave my buddy Devin over at CognitoMoto, in VA., a call. He sent me a shock from an R1 that was shorter, and I'm going to give him the gsrx one.

We are making measurements to make sure the new donor shock will fit! Ball is about to start moving again.

Is there any other changes to be made for the CL swingarm to work besides a longer chain?
