This is your chance to own a classic…in GREAT Shape !
Up for sale is a really nice condition vintage Honda 1972 CB350. While these bikes were popular in their day, you don’t see many of these still around in this original condition ! This bike was made 6/72, and is the second to last year they were made (CB350 was made from 1968 – 1973). This model is officially labelled as the CB350K4 Super Sport 350. I have too many bikes in my collection and need to start passing along some beauties to others who will appreciate and care for them. This bike has just under 16,600 miles, and is in very nice stock condition. I would say if it 7-8 out of 10 condition (some parts are better than that !). This is not a museum piece, as it has been ridden (only 16.5 k miles in last 47 years !), and has a few imperfections that show up with actual road use of a bike. But overall it is hard to come by a bike this nice. I listed the “good” and some “notes” below.
THE GOOD: Bike looks really nice ! See pics. Even when you see it in person it has the vintage lustre, and the original red tank/side covers and the chrome exhaust just “pop” as soon as you see it. Makes you want to get on and ride it. Or just park it and look at it. Chrome is nice, seat is perfect, tank is decent (BUT please see the tank notes below), all instruments and electrics work. Starts, runs, and rides! Clear title! Key! Brand new battery, ultrasonic cleaned carbs, cleaned/rebuilt fuel petcock, and installed two fuel filters. Inside of tank just recently coated with KBS – so no need to worry about rust flakes! Bike starts up right away with electric or kick start, and runs thru all the gears, rides great and stops great.
NOTES: As with any bike that has been on the road/ridden, this bike has some imperfections, which is why it is not listed as “perfect”. Biggest issue is there are two smaller size dents on gas tank – not big, and they don’t stand out from a few feet away, but they are there. I tried to show in pictures (put a circle so you could see). Tank also have a few small paint chips. Last tank issue, from being stored several years (indoors, heated) on the side stand, the left side of tank allowed fuel to “pool” at the lower left tank seam. Over time the fuel began “sweat” out thru the seam, and developed an incredibly slow micro seep thru the seam. This is a common issue with these bikes when they are stored like this with fuel for long period of time. This started to cause the paint along the seam to degrade/peel slightly from exposure to fuel for many years. This just affected the lower inch or so near the tank bottom trim. Even before doing the tank coating, I had fuel in the tank and it did not drip out, so it must have been almost like a very slow “sweat” over many years. But now with tank sealer, all those troubles are gone ! Inside of tank is coated, solid, and sealed. Outside of tank though still has these paint flaws. Just wanted you to know exactly what to expect. From few feet away, this still looks like an awesome tank, but close up you can see the paint issue near lower left seam. Aside from the tank, there are a few registration stickers still on the fork upper/lowers- I tried to remove them but they were stubborn and I didn’t want to damage the paint, so I left them for you to remove, or place new sticker over top of them.
SUMMARY: I tried to list the major points both good/bad in this ad, to be honest and transparent so you can be confident in what you are getting. If you have any further questions at all, please ask. You will be very happy with this bike.
