    Hi, I've built an old honda cb350 from a compilation of about 3 different bikes years 71-73. I've got pretty much all the kinks worked out of it. I'm having a problem with the what I think should be a carb problem. I get good power out of the bike but at about 4 or 5000 rpms in probably 3rd...
  3. Tube Type Tires Question

    Tires
    So I'm looking for a new front tire for my 72 Honda cb350. The manual calls for a 3.00-18 tube type. After a decent amount of searching I've found some IRC GS-11 tube type tires that fit my size.

    Vintage Forum
    I have a 1972 Honda CB350k4 that I found in a barn on a piece of property we bought. It's been there since 1976 or so (according to the license plate), and it had everything with it, minus the toolkit, shifter and kickstarter. It's kinda rough overall, but mostly just needs a tuneup and chrome...

    Building, Restoration & Modification
