Love them pipes! Where did you get the materials to build them and do you have a sound clip?

I"m looking for ideas for mine and it would be way easier to steal your rather than having to think up my own

The pipes are custom, one off pipes that the PO made, Sparkplug. He's a member here. Maybe he can hop in with some more details.

They do look great don't they. Great bends, great welds. He did a great job.

No sound clip, but I can tell you they're not exactly quite!

My 1974 CL360

Here's my Scrambler project bike when I first got her a few months ago:



Not in too bad shape but the tank was beat up and had not clear coat left on it. Plus the PO had sealed the tank and let the stuff run over the outside so the tank needed to be stripped and re-painted.

Also she was missing side covers, air filters, and a petcock. The laundry list of things I've done are as follows (If I remember everything I'll be surprised)

Stripped and repainted tank and newly acquired side covers.
stripped and painted tach and speedo housings
replaced stock handlebars for new MSR dirt bike bars
replaced switch gear with modern bits
replaced throttle and brake cables
new brake shoes front and rear
new battery
new headlight bucket and 35watt H4 bulb (that's about all she can handle electric-wise)
painted wheels using rustoleum appliance paint (epoxy)
painted turn signal stalks black
chopped and painted front fender
new shinko 241 tires
rebuilt forks and cleaned up rear shocks
installed uni filters
new motion-pro brake and clutch perches and levers
Install new electronic flasher relay (old one was dead)
new points installed (tried electronic ignition but destroyed the rotor)
bar-end mirrors off Amazon.com

Here's what she looks like right now:







A few things are left to button her up. I need to replace the oil seal for the tach cable and also the countershaft seal. also need to clean up the carbs as the slides seem a little sticky at times.

Boy it would be fun to have one of these around. Hammerheads' bikes are well thought out and he only uses quality components. I'm not trying to sell anything here, just sayin'.

Looks brilliant. Love the wheels. How are those tires on pavement?
Not many CL360's around. Lots of CB360's, and a few CL350's. It's a keeper.To be honest though, I thought the CL360 had a disc on the front. I know the CJ360 was a drum, and the CB360 was a disc( had one ). It looks just fine on it.

You used the word "quality" when referring to a Royal Enfield. That gave me a bit of a chuckle.

Exactly... I was referring to the mods and planning that goes into the builds. I didn't want to start some thing about the bike itself.

There's no hard feelings brewing with me. My daily rider is a Royal Enfield. I just thought it was funny.
