    Not sure how much these motors shared with other Honda twins of the era but they are pretty simple to work on and from what I gather parts are pretty cheap.

    The no title thing makes me inclined to tell you to part it out or sell it on.

    The exhaust is rusted and if I built it I would likely re-chrome. I'll post pictures tonight/tomorrow

    It's already in parts - jobs half done for you to part it out.

    See if you can get a title first. CLs were great little bikes for their time. Many parts are still available and it's not hard to slip 350cc pistons inside that motor. BUT if the crank is rusty, things could get complicated very fast. Many parts are common to CA and CB72/77 but a lot were unique including wheel rims, forks, frame and so on.

    They need very few unique tools and forget about JIS screwdrivers for old rusty screws. Just use a phillips impact driver or chisel and/or drill to get the old screw out and into the recycle bin and get new stainless cap screws.

    If all of that sounds like more work than the bike is worth to you, you can probably sell it over on Honda305.com.
