Brian from Rockford

Hello all.

Let me begin by saying I'm buying my first bike Saturday (well, actually 2). Already have sent a holding payment but have to wait to pick them up. I found them kinda by accident when a guy had a craigslist ad going for a CB350. I called him on it and he told me it was sold. After a brief conversation he told me about 2 CB360's he just got. Well after a little of this and a little of that, I sent him money for them.

My main focus in life is drifting. I've been drifting for about 9 years now and I don't ever see myself stopping. I was trying to get my Formula D license last year, but failed at nationals. This year I was hoping to try again, but unforeseen obstacles have already assured that I won't get a chance. Better luck next year I suppose.

So even though I haven't seen them with my own eyes yet, this is what I'm getting into.

Both 75's
9k and 11k miles respectively
Both motors spin nicely
Both transmissions are apparently good
Both sat in a barn or garage for 10 years
Only the Blue one has a title
Blue one has recall marks

So I'm looking to get them on Saturday and see if I can't get the carbs and tank cleaned, change the oil and see if I can't get one of these guys to start. I'll probably start a "build" thread and document my progress, but I'm really just looking to get the one in good riding shape since summer is getting here fast.
