cb 350 P2-light

Postby aly393 » Fri Feb 10, 2012 4:49 pm

well since I don't think I can get my P1-500 championship winning bike back from Jody :lol: I have to build another. I've never built a 350, and being a P2-light I can go a little crazy :mrgreen: frame started as a cb 360 and after lots of cutting, grinding and welding

Ok. So I finally get up to decent speed (without crashing!) in p4 and sure enjoy Jody wants to play in F3. So I start dusting off old 350 stuff, and now all these go fast bikes and guys jumping into p1 p2 350's .... I guess my podium day's are over..... NOT... look out you young whipper snappers, Grampa's back!

With that said...what are the chances that p2 needs a rider for Barber next Fall ?? ;-)

Nice work on the build! I'm building a bike right now and would like to consider racing it along side you. Mine's a CB 350 as well. 1970.

I looked at the rules but they seem a little obscure. What's the rule with disc brakes if they didn't come stock but from same period? I'd like to use the front fork from a cb750 (35mm) with front disc.

Also I got my frame welded yesterday but read that you can't use additional frame support in VRAA. Yours looks like you chopped the hollow center support and replaced it with 2 side frame supports. Maybe I should do that instead?

So far I'm looking at

Bore tech 67.5mm pistons
X5 megacycle camshaft
32 mm mukuni's
lightened/balanced crankshaft
cb750 forks
lightened 5.5mm valves with RD springs, titanium retainers and bronze guides
Head port/polish

As far as you know is there anything there that is non conforming?

I still need: connecting rods (no idea who is good)
Seat/tank
tires (not sure of allowable width. I think the cb350 actually came stock with wider tires than
VRRA supposedly allows too)

Any advice you can provide would be awesome. I'd really appreciate it.

I didn't realize it was a 360 frame. Even more impressive!

yes, I'm going to race this 350. Jody has first crack defending his P-1 500 title on my 500. I hope he says yes, it'll probably be the only time I see a #1 plate on one of my bikes :lol: If he has other plans, the 500 could be lent out again :wink: or sold :(

Hi Allan

Maybe with a friendly push he will defend the tittle.It would be nice to see the North Bay crew having the number #1 Plate up there again.Look forward to seeing the 350 at the Shanny.talk to you soon Allan.

Regards Paul
