1971 Honda CB350 Race Bike
For Sale: 1971 Honda CB350 Race Bike
This little vintage racer wanna be really struck a chord with me. Maybe it is the aluminum tank (ahhhhh, shiny), maybe it is the custom catch tank (love those welds), or maybe it is just the stance and the purposeful look of the bike. Whatever the reason, even though some assembly is still required, I like it.
This bike really hits the right “cafe racer” look, and is offered with some pretty impressive components. From large drum front brake to many custom pieces, this bike was more than just a collection of parts; it was somebody’s project. Like many projects, time, money and interest all play competing factors. In this case, the project is up for sale for a reasonably fair price – to someone who has the drive to finish it.

If you are out there fighting the vintage racing bug, this might be a good chance to chase that dream. Heck, sort this thing out and show up for your local track day – you will have a track day and a bike show all in one event! This bike is striking in its existing condition, and I for one would love to hear it scream!
The price seems right for a historic bike with some nice additions. But make no mistake: there is considerable work lurking in a “95% completed” project. It often takes 25-50% of the life of the project to complete that last 10%! Still, if you are willing to get your hands dirty and lust after a vintage racer, here is one at a discount – and what a labor of love that would be.
