    Honda TNV, 360cc's of awesome

    I just bought a delightful little TNV.
    It's an unfinished project, post a 2 decade stay in dry storage. I'm going to finish of the mechanical side, road-worthy and rego, then attack the body.
    Anyone who has/knows of TN360 parts (or knowledge) please get in touch.

    I realise that this post would be way more awesome with pictures, but:

    Sorry, the board attachment quota has been reached.

    Very rare in the van version. Years ago I had a couple of utes. Great to see yours preserved.

    Yes, I was rapt to score a van. The utes look pretty damn cool as well though.
    Don't s'pose you ever figured out which n360/n600 parts can be used on the TN range when you had your utes?

    Unfortunately no. One was already basically restored and the second was for parts. Kept them for several years but did nothing further with them so onsold them to a Honda enthusiast.

    The engine I was told is similar to the 305cc motorbike engine? Could be wrong, 10 years ago now. :?

    Yep, engine was based on the CB450 motorbike engine.
    I was hoping that the N600, N360 and TN360 engine/drivetrain etc would all be much of a muchness. Truthfully, I bet if I start comparing part numbers one-by-one Ill find some interchangeable parts, but at a glance the TN engine is really out there in terms of weirdness. It's actually a horizontally opposed air cooled two, rather than the straight slant 2 of the n360/600.

    I got the tyres from the Tyrepower in Port Melbourne (I'm Melbourne based now, Sydney originally).
    When I asked for 10 inch tyres they looked at me like I was drunk, but I told them I had it on good authority that Falken were still making the 807's. A phone call later and the wheels were in the post. They came crushed flat, and wouldn't seat on the rim. The guys left them for a day with an inflated tube inside them to push the sidewalls apart some, and they finally seated on the rim after another couple of hours of stuffing about.
    Anyway, the truck is no longer really welcome at Tyrepower.

    I also found some 10 inch tyres on the internet being sold by Mini specialists, like:
