Honda followed its sensational CB750 with a range of smaller fours, the first of which - the CB500 - appeared in 1971. The half-litre newcomer was just as well specified as its larger brother, boasting an overhead-cam engine, five-speed gearbox, electric starter and disc front brake. A 347cc version appeared the following year catering for riders who valued the refinement of a four, yet wanted the lower running and insurance costs of a 350. Apart from a reduced cylinder bore and detail changes to tyre sizes, gearing, silencers and rear brake, the CB350F was almost identical to the 500. Produced into 1974, the model was sold in Europe but never officially imported into the UK where the CB350 twin was the factory's preferred offering. Currently displaying a total of 10,451 kilometres (approximately 6,500 miles) on the odometer, this example of a Honda four only rarely seen in the UK has been imported into Europe from Japan and is not registered. There are no documents with this Lot.
