1972 Honda CB 350

I have a deal brewing with this guy. This thing only has 4500 miles on it. Everything is original; paint, tires, brakes, rims, etc... 1 small crack on the headlight assembly left side. Guy still has the packing slip with it. One owner.

It is the 4 cyclinder version and I have caught wind that this is a rare bike and Honda did not make alot of these.

It has sat in his garage for 20 years, then he sent it to a guy around the corner from me to get the carbs working better. He wants $1200 for it, I offered $400, he said no so I left and told him I would think about it.

Anybody know a decent price or is $1200 a still a steal??

I want an older bike like this to cruise with a few of my friends, get cheap, restore a little and keep spotless.


Thanks for the future info I may recieve.

-Jim

Yea bro, get pictures, lets see what it is.

It has to be the 400 if its a 4 cylinder.

CB350 is a parallel twin, same style motor as a classic Triumph motor.

Jimm,

Remember Gus's buddy Rick? The guy who bought the tent that was way too small for him at Road America last year? He had to sleep with his legs completely out of the tent because he bought a little kids tent. He has Gus's old CB400. Very cool cafe style bike, similar to this.

Nope, VIN, packing slip, service manual, and oweners manual all say CB350.

I think it has an "H" on the end too not sure though. CB350H or CB350M something like that.

No shit! Buy that fucker. But I think you should buy a dirtbike instead or maybe a house for that matter. Mine to be exact.

Hey! Remember Jeff filling up his air matress with the exhaust from his Toyota Tacoma?

Very cool bike, I never knew they made a 350 inline. Learn new shit all of the time just forget too much. Too bad that little beast won't tow your ass past 75 mph.

Don't need to go that fast. It is for slow cruising and prolly rides with Joe and Gus on their Cafe's. Jeff's truck isn't even a Tacoma, it's just a toyota, like a 1982 or 1990 or something with 250K on it. Almost dead, just 500K to go. I was hoping I didn't give him a bad idea and then the thing leak carbon monoxide into his lungs all night. But I liked my suggestion after it worked.

The cb 360, is a parallel twin, the cb350 is an inline four, both were made around the same time.

I am looking for a 74' cb 360, orange in color. Not a CL 360 which is the enduro type model.

Actually, the 350 Four was a 'nice' bike, but the 400 Four had all the hopup parts on it and is much more desirable from a collector's standpoint.

Its a cool bike, no question, but the market for this (and parts for it) are much, much smaller than the market for a CB400F.

Anything less than $900 for good running bike with original pipes is a GOOD deal. Pipes are rusted out or not original? Knock off $250.

good luck.
