1973 Honda CB350 Cafe Racer for Sale

1973 Honda CB350 L Side1973 Honda CB350 R Side

Honda’s CB 350 was a do-it-all middleweight when new, but has become a cheap entry point for modern customizers who’ve made it the foundation for everything from bobbers to the café racer you see here: they’re durable, easy to find, and parts are readily available.  Not to mention that the parallel twin lump gives the machine classic Triumph or Norton lines at a bargain price.

And your floor will stay largely oil-free.

In its time, the bike was Honda’s best-seller, with over 250,000 sold.  Actually displacing 325cc’s, the little parallel-twin lump put its 35hp through a five-speed transmission and pushed the machine to a claimed 110mph.

    Nice, but the seat pad looks too bulky and the tail light looks like an after thought.

    But is it twice as nice as this one? – http://cleveland.craigslist.org/mcy/3596395440.html

    $10k? Put down the crack pipe please and wear a respirator next time you spray the paint.

    Really? This awkward thing won an award? Couldn’t they even figure out how to get the seat to sit on the frame rail properly? Or how to hide that stupid looking taillight in the tail? And why put the plate sideways on the axle when the ass end of the seat looks so unfinished anyway? Those stainless pipes are okay for a prototype, but I would hope they work out the final bends before the muffler before production.

    A mediocre effort at best. They should try again after they finish their part time course in motorcycle mechanics at L.A. Trade Tech.
