Question Skid plates for a CL360?

I've seen Honda skid plates for CL350s, but I don't think I've seen one for a CL360. Did Honda ever make them for the 360? Will the 350's fit the 360? Or am I going to have to fab one up myself?

Funny you should ask that. I just helped design and produce Bill Sliver's new book, History of the Honda Scramblers, a copy of which just arrived yesterday. I looked at the section on CL360s but it doesn't show or mention a skidplate, for the 360 or 350. That doesn't mean, however, some aftermarket ones weren't available. Go to Bill's website: http://www.vintagehonda.com and hit him up for info. If anyone could answer your question it would be Bill "MrHonda" Silver.

Cheers,

Mike

My son and I are fabricating one out of an older aluminum shovel for my A7SS. It will actually be better than the one that was offered as an option, because it wraps around the sides a bit more. It won't be as tidy as an OEM piece, but it will work, and it's free.

Back in the day a co called Webco made all kinds of stuff for Honda "scramblers". They have been out of business for years but you might find an old one in someones aluminum scrap pile yet.They also made luggage racks, fork braces.

Thanks for all of the answers. I thought this resto would be quick, then I started finding more problems than the PO mentioned. I mean, who takes a speedometer cable off of a working bike? Okay, looks like I'll have to fab one, with my luck I'll find a Webco for $250

Just in case anyone was wondering, I still haven't found a skid plate, I still haven't fabbed one, and the bike is not running very well now. It does have nice new knobbies, cleaned and working carburetors, a new chain, and new mufflers. Speedo still isn't connected, she won't rev past 5000 and is bogging down. We're getting hit with a tropical storm now, and it won't stop raining until tomorrow afternoon.

I would keep searching on eBay. I'm sure somebody had one back in the day. I recently found a skid plate for my 74 CB125. It was originally made for a CL100.
