Thanks, but I just had a guy make a couple of spacers and the back axle is all sorted.
I think it's 72 or 73. But the cylinder seems to be younger, it has the small fins on the cam chain side which I think makes it post '75??
The front brake is a bit of a hassle. The CB 350 brake I bought from the wreckers seems to be from two different models. When I tighten the axle, the brake plate locks up on the drum. I need to run a little spacer in the middle but that reduces the swept area of the brake shoes, so I might have to do a bit of machining on the back of the brake plate.
I'm waiting for the top triple clamp to arrive then I can really get moving.
