Differing essentially only in engine capacity, the Honda CB250 and CB350 arrived in 1968, superseding their hugely successful CB72 and CB77 forebears. Although retaining its predecessor's basic architecture, the new overhead-camshaft engine was styled differently, with cylinders virtually upright, and went into a new tubular cradle frame that replaced the earlier spine type. In addition, there were five speeds in the gearbox plus a twin-leading-shoe front brake, and with a claimed 36bhp on tap at 10,250rpm the new CB350 (actually 325cc) was good for a top speed of over 90mph, and even when ridden hard could return 40 miles per gallon. Offering a combination of adequate performance, light weight, easy handling and economical running, the CB350 was one of the best-selling Honda motorcycles of its day and an immense hit in the USA.
This particular Honda CB350 currently displays a total of 21,624 miles on the odometer and was last licensed in 2003.
