    Hey everyone! I’m super excited to join this community. I recently bought a 1972 CL350 off eBay for $1300 that I couldn’t be happier with. She rides great, and everything works. I’ve been making adjustments and doing some standard maintenance for the past 2 months (started right at the beginning...

    I hadn't been riding for about 50 years. Back then my first bike was a Mustang. While in high school and college during summers I worked in a Texaco service station and one day I got a call to a customer's house to change a tire. When I arrived I saw two Harley model 74s, both chopped for hill...

    Hi all, My winter project this year is to rebuild the 72 CB175 I recently picked up. It runs, but that's about all it does. I'm trying to learn all I can now before actually diving in. I'm building a small one bike workshop in my yard now. Looking forward to chatting with and learning from all...

    Hi All. First time poster here. I have a 72’ cb450 and I’m pretty positive that the starter clutch is broken. When I press the starter button, the starte spins but the clutch mechanism doesn’t engage. It whines, chirps and rattles a bit, but doesn’t crank the cylinders. So I know I need to...

  7. Frame, Suspension and Steering
    I am customizing a 1972 CB175. I am not looking to turn it into cafe racer and I really do not like the look of the skateboard seats or the hump back seat that most people put on them. I am looking for a solo seat that will fit and was wondering if anyone knew of any that are known to fit. I was...

    Hello All, After a long search I scored a beauty 1972 CB40 off Craigslist last fall. I really wanted the big 70's twin and something a bit different than all the cb350's out there. Everything I saw previously was out of my price range or in extremely rough condition. Then, an ad popped up...

    I'm looking to lower my 72 cb350 since the stand over height is about 2 inches too tall for me. I'm ordering the 11" shocks from dime city cycles, but was wondering if I would need any addition parts (triple tree, etc). I've done a search of the forum and found a few helpful bits of info, but...

    I've been redoing the connections on my 1972 cb175 factory harness, since a lot of them are broken or damaged. I found vintage connections extremely helpful - their crimping tool is amazing, even for a first timer like me. Also, they carry two- and three-socket female bullet connector terminals...

    Hi everyone! I've been using the forums a lot since picking up this CB175, so I thought I'd better introduce myself. I recently moved to Central Texas and thought it would be the perfect time to get my first motorcycle. I knew this one wasn't in perfect condition, but of course some of the the...

    Hello, New to the forum, first post! Just grabbed a sweet 72 cl350 and I want to do some mild mods to it, its too nice to hack up. First thing I want to do is put some new shoes on her. I want to throw on some shenko 705s, what is the biggest size I can put on the rear? 120/90/18? thinking this...

    Hey guys, I recently acquired a 1972 Honda CB350 Four not too long ago for a great price, and I figured I should join a forum for helpful info. It has the original plate and the previous owner said he restored it 2 years ago- I also have the manual and small tool set that came with it. I'm not...
  17. Fuel Supply and Carburation
    I got this 1972 Honda CB350 back in May as my first non-dirtbike bike, and as a way to teach myself more about the mechanics of a motorcycle. I'm having a heck of a time trying to find a straight forward answer so I'll try here. My right carb gasket is most likely the culprit of a slow gas leak...
