    Oh GEEZE, I looked at CL, I just got a Honda CB 350 FOUR ! ! ! ! YAY ! ! !

    OK,
    So im sick and twisted and I went and looked last night at local CL and saw someone just listed a 1974 Honda CB 350, Four,
    This model has been on my bucket list for 20 years and they have always been too expensive for my thoughts, Or too far from stock, Or plain old too shitty for me to deal with,
    Now this one showed up,
    While its tired looking, It runs well with no smoke, The carbs do need cleaning and the petcock needs a rebuild, "Pencil in fuel line".
    Over all a nice winter project, Im guessing about 20 hours or less to make it a super solid 4 cylinder sewing machine,
    You have to appreciate the fact thats its a 4 cylinder and was the smallest displacement 4 cylinder production bike of its time,
    Bore is 47mm and stroke is 50mm,
    6 main bearings and 5 speeds,
    The CB350 Twin was faster and more powerful, But this thing is smoooooooth,
    Parts availability seem plentiful and I will comment that at 50*, This thing starts with a touch of the starter button or a lazy kick or two from the kick starter,
    Its going to be a fun spring on this,
    Im thinking it will replace the TW for in town runs and the TW can enjoy more off road duties,
    Yes, I know,
    I don't need another bike,
    I don't need more toys,
    But I have wanted the 350 Four since the 80s and one should follow their dreams ! ! !
    I didn't want the 400 Four, Just the 350,
    I know the exhaust is not stock, But otherwise its a pretty original example of a hard to find bike at a low cost to me,
    ~ ~ ~
    Anyone here have one?
    Would love to hear your stories ! !

    It always amazed me of Honda's tendency to build 4 cyl, small disp. motorcycles in the 70s. Congrats. It will be a fun project!

    Had a CB360T for awhile. It was only a twin and I could never get it working right. Wouldn't have a prayer with a four! Congrats! Love those old Hondas.
