Thanks for looking at my 1973 Honda CB350. I set out to create a nice rider that had a slight café racer feel, but still maintained the original look and you would have to take a second glance to notice the small differences. As the pictures show, it is in great condition, just the normal wear for a bike this age. During the restoration over the past 10 months, the items on the lists below have either been done to the bike, or installed. The tank had been repainted at some point when I purchased it. It was in decent condition, but it needed some attention. It went through a complete restoration to bring it to its current condition and was featured on Detailing Boost’s 50/50 Worldwide Challenge. I have pictures from throughout the restoration that I can send if you happen to be interested.
While this is an excellent looking bike, and I have done my best to bring it back to its current condition, please keep in mind it is 47 years old. Some things to take note of: The brace that goes over the rear fender has been cut. This was to make room for a flat style café racer seat that was installed when I purchased the bike. The left side cover has either some heavy orange peel or chemical reaction at the top (as seen in the pictures) I received them like this so I cant speak to what caused it. The right side cover does have some chips and a crack in the fins ( as seen in the pictures). I have since touched them up after the pictures were taken. I just wanted the buyer to see before touchup. While the tank looks great in the pictures, it does have some flaws here and there. The front forks have been replaced from an earlier model CB350 with the external spring style. The center stand is missing and one final thing to mention is that with replacing the front brake lever, it no longer activates the tail light. The tail light is only activated with the foot pedal (Which you should be using every time anyway, right…?).
If you would like to see anything else in particular or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask and I’ll do my best to answer.
Now for the boring stuff. A non refundable deposit of $500 is due within 24 hours of the auctions end. Full payment is due within 7 days, at which time I can release the title if needed in advance of shipping. I can hold the bike for up to two weeks for the buyer. I can and will help with any shipping needs, but it must be arranged and paid for by the buyer. Full payment must be in hand before the bike leaves my possession.
Thanks for looking!
The bike is listed for sale locally, so I do reserve the right to end the auction early if a local sale were to happen.
