    That poor bike looks sooo lonely, parked amidst all those stinkin' Harleys. What happened to the bags? Let us (me) know if you want to sell 'em.

    That is a really nice lookin' bike. I might be tempted to leave it as is, too. Although superbike bars are pretty awesome.

    my cl350 used to real clean and pretty in stock condition and i thought it would be sacrilege to strip it till i realized that the 350's really aren't that rare. these bikes were one of the best selling bikes honda ever produced, hence the 20 sumodd pages of bikes and parts listed on ebay.

    i would recommend putting some euro bars or something and riding it around before you drop the bars lower but it is your bike and i'd do what ever you want with it just do it right the first time. my last suggestion is that unless you have an abundance of free space to store it all and really think you might put all the old shit back on it sell it all on ebay a clean tank seat and side covers will help pay for a lot of the other things you want to do to the bike.

    I am planing on painting a different tank and there will be no side covers on the bike. I have already removed the sissy bar from the bike. The handle bars are definitely been replaced. I have already order a seat for the bike. I am just waiting for some parts to come in to begin the build process. The front of the bike will have a disk brake installed from a 1973 cb350. The engine will be painted black with the fins polished and the engine covers maybe chromed. The pipes are going to be re-chromed as well as the front forks.

    Thanks for all of the compliments and suggestions for the bike.

    I did what last night !!!!

    Welcome aboard.

    My first bike was a 350F, boy did I love her. Good luck on the project. Keep the pictures rolling.

    I have the saddle bags, the only problem is that I am missing one of the lids. About two weeks ago it flew off on the freeway going about 90 mph. It was my mistake for not making sure the cover was closed properly. But if any one wants them I will send them the cases if your willing to pay for the shipping. You could probably have some one make a copy of the the other lid out of fiberglass. They have the rear tails lights installed with turn signals. I also have all of the hardware for mounting onto a CB.

    Send me an email [email protected] in regards to the saddle bags.
