Title: Project: 1972 CB100 Rebuild
Post by: Nihon Newbie on April 28, 2015, 04:00:43 AM
I guess this can go in here, it's likely going to be more rambling and complaining than pics, but there's still plenty of pics, lol.

Long story short, I bought this bike a few weeks ago wanting a commuter bike so I could leave my 600RR set up for the track all summer, and not have to worry about speeding and piling on the miles. I rode it for a few days but couldn't help myself...I'm just not capable of owning a junker bike! It leaked way too much oil to be safe anyways, so apart it has come...The goal is to invest less than $500 in restoring it to better-than-new condition, using the paint booth at work and my previous experience with rebuilding bikes. So far it's all torn down, some basic cleaning, and am gradually schlepping parts to and from work to be sand blasted and painted, polished, etc. I have also disassembled the wheels a bit and cleaned up the absolutely filthy drum brakes, shined up several bare steel parts, and put together an extensive shopping list of all the Honda parts I need to order. It will be a very different bike when I'm done, but not a cafe racer, and nothing irreversibly changed. Frame will be powder coated, electrics all converted from 6v to 12v, all lights replaced with LEDs, less dorky bars, a proper throttle installed, engine fully re-gasketed/sealed and  painted, most of the chrome done away with and painted (having things re-chromed is exceedingly expensive in California, and it's not really my thing anyways), wheels stripped and painted (stock chrome is far too damaged to save it), new brake shoes, new cables, custom taillight/LP setup, steel tank and plastic side covers stripped/repaired/sanded/painted, most all fasteners replaced with proper bolts and no more stupid effing philips head screws!! The exhaust will likely remain stock, as the Cone Engineering muffler I want is out of my budget, at $157+welding labor, so it will simply be painted.

Which brings me to my main hurdle...being a 43 year old bike, a lot of OEM parts are very hard to find at a reasonable price, if at all, so unfortunately I'll have to go aftermarket for some things, and pay through the nose for others when there is no aftermarket part available. Nextly on the list of frustrations is all the fasteners...The motor is almost entirely built with JIS philips head screws, and they're totally seized, over torqued, painted over, and some stripped. I can't even get at the stator, which is getting replaced, until I open the motor, let alone the clutch and transmission. I'm going to buy a hand impact screwdriver and hopefully that helps me free the motor of all those wretched screws!

Here are some random pics for now...When it finally comes time for re-assembly, maybe in a month or so, I'll start taking more documentary type photos. Feel free to follow along while I pour hundreds of hours into a 43 year old, 100cc bike, lol! Also feel free to send me money 8)

I've been really impressed by what you can get done with just Scotch Brite pads and a wire wheel...These springs, nuts, and bolts were all totally rusted and oily when they came off the bike, and I've been able to get them to shine up rather well already.

Lol! Thanks dude, I'm pretty stoked to give it the TLC I know only a crazy like me can give it, haha. It'll take much longer for me to do this bike up than my RR, since I have a full time job these days, but I'm hopeful it'll be done before summer. The stupid JIS cross-head screws holding the motor closed up tight are fighting me at every corner, so until I can get those out, I'm at a bit of a standstill...I have been looking around for the right drivers for my hand-impact screwdriver, so wish me luck there...LOTS of online shopping to come soon, which is actually kinda cool, since I never really let myself buy anything for the RR, and now I get to go hog wild buying OEM parts for this lil bike...I think my Partzilla.com shopping cart has like 42 different parts in it now... :P

Got the tires off the rims today, and will unlace them tomorrow morning. Conquered all the external seized fasteners, as well as a few on the oil filter rotor. Pulled the stator out and test-fitted the CB350 stator I bought on eBay...looks like it's a good fit, just need to do a continuity test on it tomorrow to ensure that it's good to use. The hand impact driver with the correct bit in it was a life-saver today! All of the screws had been hit with PB Blaster, but weren't going to budge without a few good whacks from the impact. I also used it on the rotor bolt and it barely took any effort to get that backed out, thankfully! I am going to pull the rotor tomorrow, and would love to split the cases, but the oil slinger/clutch drum tool I ordered has still not arrived, so it will have to wait, unfortunately. I should still be able to put in a good amount of time cleaning up the head tomorrow, and inspecting the piston, which I really really hope is in good shape. The exhaust port on the head looks very sooty and black, but dry, so I'm hopeful.

I ported and polished the head for my CH150 and noticed marked improvements in throttle response and acceleration, so I'd like to do the same to the head for this CB. Nothing major, just knocking down casting flash and evening out the surface a little. I wish we had a vapor blaster in the area, but it looks like I'll just be blasting the head and cases with aluminum oxide, unless I can find a local shop that has walnut shell media and will blast it all for me. Really stoked to see that the internals of the engine so far are relatively clean and almost entirely rust free, a big relief for me!

Very much looking forward to getting the motor all shiny and clean inside and out, and ready for paint. I haven't decided on a color scheme for it yet, but I'm leaning towards black for the crank case, and dark silver for the side covers to match the tank, air cleaner covers, and fork tubes. I also love the two-tone effect of sanding off the edges of all the fins on the cylinder and head, or maybe just taking a silver Sharpie to them after the parts are painted.

The frame is completely stripped of parts now, and is ready to go to the powder coater. I was quoted $120 for them to do all requisite cleaning, blasting, masking, and plugging, and a semi-gloss black powder coat, which I feel is a little steep considering how small the frame is, but I'm hoping I can convince them to also include a few brackets and the swingarm for that price, considering the swingarm and brackets will already be blasted and ready for PC. I would love to also PC the rims, but their color options are not to my liking, and they want too much $$ to do the rims, I suspect because blasting off the original chrome would be very difficult.

Speaking of chrome, I received some parts today that were very hard to find...there is a chrome retainer sleeve that fits atop the fork lower and holds the external fork spring in place. I had to ruin one of mine in order to get it off the fork lower, which bums me out a lot because it cost me $65 just to buy a NOS set of them. The chrome is in great shape on the new ones though, so that's neat. I'm going to see if I can sell my spare used one now to recoup some of the cost of the NOS set I bought. I can only find one other set for sale online...so crazy, it used to be a 9 dollar part

I'm always partial to red black gold and white or some combination thereof. The black and silver will go good together. Though I would like to point out something from my useless art degree: grey/silver makes all other colours appear richer, so consider adding something other than just black to really make things pop. Other than that it sounds like you're on top of things as per usual. Keep us posted!  :pop:

Thanks dude! I struggle to be right brained at all so those kinds of design tips are much appreciated. All my past bikes, and my wardrobe, seem to suggest that I'll be going with a psuedo monochromatic scheme...black for the frame, crank case, cylinder, and head, with the edges of the fins in silver, dark silver for the case covers, dark metallic silver/gray for the tank, forks, and side plastics, but with a black and white detail on the sides of the tank to pay homage to the original design. Still undecided about the wheels/hubs/spokes though. I feel like black rims look washed out and tend to blend into the tire too much...missed opportunity for good contrast, but I don't want white. Chrome would be ideal, but it's way too expensive for me. I'm going to test out some metallic paint and see what I can do with that. Black hubs, probably silver spokes, though white would look pretty cool. I wish I were good at mockups in photoshop, haha.

Color choices aside, I had a crap day until I got home and spent a therapeutic 4 hours working on the motor...My 24mm oil rotor/clutch spanner socket from Motion Pro arrived, and after 20 minutes with my hand impact driver and a big ass wrench, I finally got the oil rotor off the crank! I had to check the manual to make sure it wasn't a LH thread, it was on the crazy tight!! Pulled the clutch, too, which was super crazy easy. Also pulled the shift drum and shift linkage, so I'm going to finally ready to split the cases on Wednesday! ;D

I will have to post a pic, but the centrifugal spark advance mechanism that slides onto the end of the tiny camshaft was damaged by a PO. Looks like someone hammered on it in a bad way to try and get it off the shaft end. The index hole in the camshaft into which fits a very small alignment pin, was wallowed out badly, and actually caused the underside of the spark advance part to sheer. I cleaned it very well and attempted repair with JB Weld today, so we'll see what it looks like tomorrow after I sand the JB Weld back to the intended shape of the part and test fit it onto the repaired camshaft end.

I re-terminated a few leads for the turn signal sub-harness...A few were missing their male terminals, so a coworker helped me solder on some fancy ones to repair them. Also used some color matched heat shrink on the wire coming from the points mechanism. I can't wait to shrink wrap the whole harness and be done with all the nasty electrical tape that's on there now, yuck.

I know I'm putting way too much work into this little bike, but I've been deburring, sanding off casting flash, and polishing all kinds of things in this motor...the faster oil can run off of a lot of these internal parts, the faster it returns to the pan to be scavenged and recirculated. It's going to be rather pretty when it all goes back together and has some quality oil run though all its freshly cleaned and polished guts!a

The restoration continues, I just haven't been posting, too busy. The frame and swingarm go to the powder coater this saturday, the motor is completely apart, casting flash removed, cleaned, and awaiting sandblasting, refinishing, and replacement of all the seals. The piston needs new rings, since I unfortunately broke the very thick and stiff one-piece oil ring while removing it. Parts list is just about complete and will order most everything next week. Reproduction cables have been sourced, all bare steel parts have been restored, almost all parts to be re-painted have been sandblasted and bagged. Hardware still needs to be sourced, but I'm guessing about 60 dollars worth of nuts, bolts, screws, and clamps. I hand polished a few aluminum parts, and have been working on deciding on coatings for all the parts to be refinished. I really don't want to use paint on much of anything, so I'm planning on using Cerakote on a lot of things, namely the engine exterior surfaces. Wiring harness is slowly being worked on/updated with modern connectors and better wiring, but I still need to source bulbs for the 4 that go into the speedo unit. Turn signals and brake lights have been selected, but I have been hesitant to spend the 150 it will cost to get them from the shop in Japan...

Biggest issues right now are getting the CB350 stator to fit properly into the motor, which will require some fab work, and sourcing replacement spokes/nipples for the wheels. I'm going to have to take them to a wheel builder here in town, as I lack the skills/patience/tooling to properly re-lace them.

Post by: CDN on May 29, 2015, 09:12:22 PM
What's Cerakote? Is it like varsol? Safe on seals or areas with seals?

What's Cerakote? Is it like varsol? Safe on seals or areas with seals?

Cerakote is a brand of high-performance and high-temp spray on ceramic coatings that are very popular in the firearms world, and quickly gaining traction in the motorsports world. They have a "heat extractor" compound that I can spray on the engine cases, cylinder head, and cylinder jug that will better facilitate cooling that any paint, and since it's an air cooled motor, I need that. They have a wide variety of purpose-formulated products for everything from exhaust coatings to stuff to coat your piston crowns with, it's awesome, but not cheap, and application is tricky. Coolest thing is the durability...the stuff is like impervious to everything, and the buildup is suuuper thin, so you can use it in tight clearance areas, unlike paint which gets thick really fast.

Can't coat seals with it, but I'll be using it on most of the metal surfaces after sand blasting...crank cases, case covers, cylinder head and jug, kick and center stands, brackets, and maybe even the outside of the fuel tank and the rims. Definitely check it out, they have both air cure (5 days room temp) or oven cure (like 500F) versions of most every product. Color choices are very limited though, that's maybe the biggest limitation with the stuff.

The CB100 is essentially done. I "finished" in August and have been riding it around since then. Decided I'll likely never sell it, as I have over 400 hours into the thing, lol. I'll upload some pics to Photobucket tomorrow and get them on here. Forgot we can't just attach them at full res.

I hate using photobucket so much on my phone, is infinitely frustrating, and so counterintuitive. Anyways, there are a million more photos, but I can't be bothered to post them, lest I go crazy trying and end up throwing my phone out my window...

The bike gets crazy attention like everywhere. I'm at over 400 hours into it now and am just about done...ish. I've put 800 miles on it since the restoration, and I love riding it, such a blast. Having some jetting/fueling issues that make it run rich and a little weak, but whatever.

You're lucky, most data recovery here is a grand or thereabouts. Glad you're ok and kicking. The bike looks great! And if I'm not mistaken it looks like warm weather and sunshine. Still sitting here wondering what that's actually like.

Depends on how compromised the data is, and how badly damaged the drive was. A simple crashed head is cheaper to work around than a drive that was dropped while spun, or damaged in a fire. We'll see...

And thanks, I'm really stoked on how the bike turned out! Those photos are like 4 months old, but sadly it's still warm weather here...another dud winter as far as the cold is concerned, though thankfully we have actually been getting rain here and there. 2 Days ago though, it was 86F here...not ok

It's hovering around 30-40 here, has for months now. Warmest winter I've ever seen here. Guys are already out on the bikes. I got blitzed by a stonkin nice 2005 Repsol CBR100RR this morning. Gave the guy the thumbs up at the next light. Gave me goose bumps and makes me want to get mine out right now. Oh and I'm calling it right now, speeding ticket this year. I already feel it. Going to start saving up now.

Do speeding tickets have any effect on your insurance rates in Canada though?

Yes. Every year you renew your insurance, they do a record check. If you change insurance companies, item number is driver abstract. I'm just stupid. I have a pretty clean record, and I pay 400 canadian a year for full coverage, I can handle it.  ??? :fu:

Been a while...Sorry. Sold the bike months ago, got a good price for it. Before I sold it though, I bought a 1975 CB125 with 1300 miles, for 450 bucks! Starting the whole process over with this little bike now and trying to buy its identical twin, but the seller included no contact info in their ad, ugh.

Man I hope you find that, but I'm just more glad there's someone else on here besides me. Hope this site gets up and running again. I remember the good old days when you didn't log in for a day you fell behind on all the threads and intros, now...I just see my last post from months ago  :banghead:

Yea...the forum sure went dead! It has been for some years now and soon they won't be making the 600rr any more  ??? All I do is behind the scenes clean up of spammers awaiting profile activation. I have 95 waiting on me to ban and delete them, but it's so tedious I don't feel like doing it. I look for the obvious names like "bob600rr" or "red600racer" and activate them...the rest can sit...especially the ones with email addresses like kkjfgsdkfjgh456758kdfcvh.kjhfgksy76afg.jhsbfdjg089s@gmail.com. Just out of fairness that one might be a legitimate account, I check all the IP addresses, but it's a pain in the booty!

The 600RR will be out of production for the European market ONLY. Most due to the (deemed) excessive cost of what it would take to meet new, absurdly restrictive Euro4 emissions regulations. Production and availability for all other markets is to remain unchanged.

That said, I finally got to rip on my RR at the track again last Monday...holy crap was that fun!! Can't wait to get it back on the street soon. Supposed to veer 94 tomorrow, still bitchin riding weather.

Man I miss riding  :banghead:

Bud the way I ride...best move was selling my bike at the birth of my daughter. One day I'll get back out there, but can't come fast enough.

I know this thread totally got jacked but I don't think either of you mind  :P

Be safe guys! Hopefully our paths will cross again someday somewhere.
