Question Scrambler project for the missus to build/ride...whatta ya think?

So I'm cheap, sue me. still looking for a cheap ride for myself when i came across something for me to restore over the winter that would be a perfect first bike for the wifey. Will post a pic when i get in the house and cleaned up a bit.

'74 HONDA CL360 Scrambler

Good choice? Anyone fixed one of these up? Anyone got parts layin about?
anyone fitted extended suspension to one?

Tell me what you know about them.

Cheers,
Northern ON rider

Suppermotodd here in old school has owned some 360's. He will probably respond. He is busy repairing the airhead GS right now. Gaelic Dog has a few also. First order of business is to buy a good shop manual !!

Got 2 with it, actually. original factory Honda one(complete with poorly translated engrish) and a Clymer for same. But thanks for the tip...that's always good advice.

My first bike was a 1973 CL350. I still look at the picture on the wall and wish I had it. It's in pieces in New York state right now. Don't think it's gonna make it west.

Does the 74 have a disc brake on the front?

Nope, no disc....yet

Is your '73 still "yours"? or that's just where it went after you sold it?

I still have the title and the keys, but I have no idea how to contact the owner of the building where it has been resting since 1993. It is in the building that (at that time) was the Gabriels, NY post office. Way up north. North of Saranc Lake.

if it's a small town, just call the town office. they always know that kind of shit. never know. could be a good project for you (pssst...or me...over here...yeah me).

I think I might live closer. Right here in New York. I got a truck. Won't have to cross state or national boarders. Yeah, I think it would be easier all around.

Eh? The title threw me

I figgered she was gonna polish the the parts for your ride over the winter, or perhaps knit you a seatcover or sew you your own roadcrafter suit
good luck with your scrambler
