This 1970 Honda CB350 is simply a beautiful example of easy to ride, start and enjoy scoots that toppled lethargic British and American motorcycle industries. These vintage Japanese bikes are difficult to find in decent shape as they were considered “throw away” bikes by many folks and they didn’t use the finest materials at that time, along with so many heavy handed riders who seized the engines trying to keep up with the old school iron bikes. This bike has survived with the typical war wounds but continues to provide smiles mile after mile!!
I had to search high and low to find replacement parts for this sweet 1969 CB350. Old age, high mileage and an obvious lack of oil wiped out the cam and rocker followers. New parts are no longer available from Honda (of course) and the aftermarket hasn’t begun producing hard parts for these bikes even though Honda flooded the market with them for nearly a decade. But someone in the Far East still has NOS items for sale that really weren’t that pricey unless you consider what the parts cost forty seven years ago… I was just thrilled to find them to keep another vintage CB toolin down the road!!
