Just as a foreword, this is going to be a very intermittently updated project thread, as I am primarily focused (money and time ) on my 1983 BMW R100RT. My first foray into wrenching and appreciating the "quirkiness/character" of old bikes came when I fell in love with the "cafe racer" look in 2008. Being young, dumb, and having my first paycheck from my first job, I did what you would think I would do, I bought a ratty barely running 1975 Honda CB360T for a song and decided to make it my cafe project. After a year or two of learning things the hard way and throwing money at it, I had a pretty good runner: Fast forward a couple years and a few other bikes later, I was going on a ride the first non-snowy day of Spring 2017, and all of a sudden the bike had a loss of power. Pull over and realize that my bike is on fire! I could be mistaken, but the engine seems to have backfired through the carburetor and lit my UNI air filters on fire. A police officer in the area responded to my call and doused the bike with his fire extinguisher. The damage was done: My frame was singed, wiring harness melted, melted components gooped all over the bike, and carburetors were coated in fire extinguisher powder. I got the bike towed back to my house and it spent the 2017 Chicago riding season tucked in the back of the garage. Not sure why, I decided to take another look at the bike today. I decided that if I am going to keep this old bike around, I better do it right this time and do a full rebuild from the bare frame up including a partial engine rebuild (at least the top end to address the oil leakage). I started with disassembly of the easy stuff, and will start to take detailed photos/videos of the nastier stuff. Initial question: Is it worth it to keep an eye out for a NOS wiring harness, or should I just look for an eBay offering that looks "clean"?
