The last couple of days haven’t been great in the shed. I still cant get the CB350 tank to sit how I want.
Trying to reshape the underside isn’t working for me, as the CB250N has this horrid ‘bulge’ half way down the main bar. Hence why at the moment the rear of the tank sits so high. The angle in theory give it a very aggressive stance, but in this case it is too much.
StephenB on Cafe Racers Australia did a similar project last year, using a Kawasaki KH100 tank. I’ve PM’d him to see how hard it was to fit.
The seat has continued to give me grief. I’m just not happy with it, and the more I try and ‘fix’ it, the worse it gets. Depending on if I go with teh KH100 tank, I might go down the road of a completely custom seat.
Todays win however has been the speedo. It arrived this morning and I spend the afternoon making a suitable bracket to make it fit.
