|December 28 2015. Project T350 special. I am building this bike out of parts I have had for many years.
Everything used will be renewed, repainted, rechromed etc.
It will be for sale when complete but will not be cheap, I expect somewhere in the $6000 to $7000 range. Parts used in the bike will range from 1969 to 1972 and some parts not originally used on T350's. If you have a interest in purchasing this bike please call me on 0422 819 200. Bike is at Mt.Gravatt East Brisbane Australia.
I'll start with the engine, it is from a 71 model, stripped bare, cases blasted, the botton case was painted in epoxy silver to make for easy cleaning.
Crank fully rebuilt with new rods, bearings and seals, Newtronic electric ignition fitted.
Alloy covers blasted and polished.
Lower case bead blasted and painted for easy cleaning.
Crank rebuilt with new bearings, seals and rods.
A few close ups below that may help others building T250/350.
Oil pipes fitted ready for priming before first start up.
More close ups of the stator side.
Newtronic ignition fitted, it is NOT plug and play friendly,
some modifying to the back plates were required to get the time set correctly.
Blasted and polished parts.
And then polished them.
Chroming I had done
Cycle threads re zinc plated.
The wheels, both are Borrani, the front was fitted to a H1 Kawasaki in the 70's and is therefore 19inch, the rear is 18inch.
Putting it all together, or mocking it up really.
Those instruments have now been used on another bike but I have a nice set from a 72 model I will use,
The bars have now been replaced with adjustable clubmans.
The left switch block is NOS.
The fork tubes are NOS, front wheel sits with brake on right side as per Kawa H1
The axle was modified to fit the T350 fork lowers, I will be using a T500 front guard.
The tank is 1969 T350, the seat is home built.
July 9, All electrics fitted and working. I ended up using another set of instruments,
the GT250 set were too wide and allowed no movement for the adjustable bars to be adjusted.
