    Geez man, don't mess with that sucker. If you NEED a cafe racer, sell that to someone who will appreciate and buy a running but looks like crap 350. Give the extra money to tannermattic or whoever for body work.

    But really, you should feel proud to ride that thing as is. In point of fact, clean stockers are (somewhat ironically) more rare and unique than most of the so-called "café" bikes these days. So, what's it gonna be: Blend into the woodwork, or ride something pretty cool?

    If you cut that, it just might cut you back.

    Hey, it's your bike, do what you want with it. Turn it into a pile of parts if you want, but that is a pretty sweet bike as it is. Monetarily it is worth more as is than after you cafe it.

    If you are near NY I will trade you even up a nice running cb350 that looks a little tatty. No one would bitch if you decided to modify it.

    I can attest to Jacks bike being a strong runner I went to Jacks ride this summer and drove the wheels off the thing. Thanks again Jack! You have some of the best roads for riding I have seen out of Hawaii.
    PS: I was running with all larger CC bikes some more modern.

    I have gotten rough bikes, between $50 to $400 the upper scale was actually somewhat nice

    Well you sure have a clean ride and it looks almost mint. If it was me and I owned the bike I’d build her over to a Café Racer, but not chop any thing. I’d keep all parts to be able to convert back for resale. Keep the mods to bolt on only, but it’s your ride and you’re totally free to do as you wish. Why buy someone else’s problem when you already have a good bike to build from.
    Always make the best of what you have!

    ejohn,

    You should be able to pick up a decent but tatty runner for under $700, and I see lots of them on CL for $500 or less. Of course I wouldn't sell mine for less than 1500 or so because I don't have to.

    I haven't even ridden it since Nick was here. But he didn't push it back, so it must still run......

    Depending on what state you live in, a bike with no papers can be no big deal, or the kiss of death. Know which before you buy a beater.

    Jack
