Thanks,

LOVE this thing!

Wanted: CB360 or CB350 engine

Good evening to all!

I have been working on a cb360 for quite some time (my first and only bike actually) and have been having some engine trouble. Alas, the engine has seized up completely. Now, I am not a gearhead. This particular bike has been quite an up-and-down experience (mostly down), and most of my motorcycle time has been spent as a failing ADVMechanic instead of being a beginning ADVRider. With the engine now toast, I am not looking forward to tearing apart the engine for the third time to determine what went wrong, maybe fix the issue, and hope that my next riding season will fair better than the 500 miles I got on it so far. What I really want to do is ride this season.

So this is what I am looking for:

A CB360 or CB350 complete engine (Preferably a running engine as I REALLY do not want to wrench the insides for quite some time, but I know its a longshot)

-or-

Suggestions for potentially putting a "newer" air-cooled engine into the old girl's chassis. I have seen a ninja 250 engine in the frame, but it was fugly, and I think that if it ever fell over the radiator would break instantly. Could a Rebel 250 engine work? What about a dirt bike engine? I would like to stay on the lower cc division if possible.


Now, I am sure some of you out there would suggest for me to go out and buy the new TU250. While that looks like an awesome choice for a beginning rider, I have a painful fondness for the old 360 (I named her Christine, which could be why I am having such a problem as it is).


Thank you all in advance for your help, and I look forward to this year's adventures (perhaps I will be able to do my own... )

WTB: Used front brake rotors to fit an '88 RT

I need a set of brake rotor *carriers* for my 1988 R100RT -- the disks can be in any condition; I only need the carriers for Spiegler to convert for mounting their floating rotors. Anybody have an old take-off set of rotors laying around in their BMW parts pile??

That happens when the triangular wedge is missing.

Also, don't try to keep the controls absolutely locked to the bars. Just clamp them tight enough so normal use won't rotate them. Then, if the bike falls over, they can twist without breaking a lever or mirror.

Looking for a stock rotor for my 80g/s. Mine is buggard. Currently crossing the USA on one that is toast...not very fun. Someone must have one kicking around after a big brake upgrade. Let me know.

My R100RS is avaliable in the UK if anyone is interested.

Thanks,

Selling a gorgeous /5

For anyone that may be interested I just posted a really nice 71 R75/5 in the for sale forum. My son has started shooting competitively and I just don't have time to enjoy all of the other toys. It's the nicest /5 I've seen and deserves an owner that will love and cherish and ride it.

My son is wanting a new Sako sniper rifle in .338 Lapua to use for 3 gun matches, and that is what the money from the /5 will be used to buy. Buy a great bike and help an aspiring shooter.

Wow, 3 Gun there is different than here. Most here, including me, use a AR-15 style semi for the rifle portion. I use iron sights but many use the ACOG. And a tactical shotgun and any kind of sidearm. How many shots a day will he need with the .338? That ammo's not cheap. Best of luck.

I had an F class rifle built in 6.5x47. I hate to admit it but it cost me more than I paid for my R100GSPD which is in beautiful shape. Good luck with the sale and hopefully you and your son find a good hammer.

Edit: just re-read the rules and ebay ads are no-no's :(
