The motorcycle I personally ride and repair is a 1976 Honda CB 360t. Honda CB 360s have a twin cylinder, four stroke engine. CB 360s were made from 1973-1976, the CB 360t being the last year. They are equipped on a semi double-cradle frame with a six-speed gearbox, drum brakes on front and rear (hydraulic discs in the front on the T version), the suspension is telescopic front forks, a swing arm in the rear and a 2.9 gallon tank. CB 360s are air cooled and although complex in their entirety, pretty self explanatory when taken piece by piece. Vintage bikes from this era should always be filled with ethanol free gasoline to avoid problems down the road with all of your rubber parts. The bike runs better on this high octane gas, because essentially it was made at a time when ethanol didn’t exist. You’ll get a more pure mixture and it will help everything run smother in the long run. Happy bikes are safer bikes and will preform better for years to come.
Death With Benefits
My name is Mallory Mordaunt. I am in my 30s. I'm a writer, bartender, illustrator, baker, sculpture, motorcycle enthusiast, part time landscaper for our local Olmsted Parks here in the city of good neighbors. A true jerk of all trades. I enjoy riding, wrenching and traveling every minute of everyday that I'm not asleep or at work. When I spend time making art I find myself making friends in all shapes and forms. I suffer from PTSD stemming from past domestic assault, sexual assault, physical abuse and anesthesia awareness while undergoing full spinal fusion at the age of 14 years old and recently mildly from the theft of my beloved motorcycle. Riding has always benefited me. As a teen, riding with my Pop, then later riding with others. Life on the back of a bike wasn't for me. I am in my 3rd season as a solo rider and wrencher, learning more than I ever have by getting my hands dirty and gaining more saddle time. My goal is for people beginning and nostalgic for when they were, people who struggle with PTSD to follow my journey and share in the growth as I enter this new chapter of my life. Knowledge is power and in large numbers we can create a helpful database. No need to impress anyone or look a certain way. Just following my love. Motorcycle riding has been used to help treat PTSD for years and has proven extremely helpful to me personally.
