I'd love to find one of these parallel twin cylinder '70s motorcycles. It would have to be relatively low mileage, museum quality, cosmetically flawless and in perfect running unmodified showroom condition. Honda made over a quarter million CB350s alone so there must be some nice ones still around restored or original. The Chinese just came out with a retro bike that resembles a cross between the CB350 and the CB400SS. It's called the Genuine G400C. It's tempting but I'd really rather have the real thing.

I had a '69 CL350, it was a great bike. Traded it for a '62 Transporter. Wish I had both of them back in the garage.

I had a CB 360. Rode it from central NJ to Burlington Vermont on a permit. It took 10 hours and I vibrated for 3 hours after we got there. My buddy rode his 360 Scrambler and we had a great time.

Ahh, brings back memories of my first crash on a Honda 350 Scrambler; didn't do enough damage so I then got a 450!

I had a CL250 ( at least I thought it was a 250) it was orange with the pipes running up and under my thigh while I rode it. It was a great bike, but like all 16 year olds I wanted a bigger bike, which then began my downward spiral to bigger and faster bike’s until I eventually got one too big and too fast for my skinny little butt, and almost killed myself.
I’ve perused, ebay, craigslist to find one like my first but the prices have gotten a little crazy. Fully restored they’re $3-5 grand and up. Unrestored $1500 does it but you never know what you’re getting.
For some reason, Michigan craigslist seem to always have a lot of them try different cities and towns in Michigan.
Good luck and best wishes.

Terrible when you know of squirreled away 'barn finds', but you know the owner would rather see 'em rust away than ever think about selling them!

This is a stock photo, but it's identical to the bike I owned during my teachers college years. I came off it about 100klms south of Cunnamulla on a wooden bridge and had to wait about 2hrs for a car to come along to get me and my stuffed bike to Cunnamulla. I had it fixed and rode it for another couple of years.
I had a mate who had the 350 but because he promised his mum he wouldn't ride anything over 250, he changed the side covers for the 250 ones. They looked identical except IIRC his was blue.





The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.

To the intelligent person, life appears infinitely mysterious, but the stupid have an answer for everything.

Day Dreamers, don't discourage them. That's where original thought comes from.

Here is the new Genuine G400C that I mentioned: http://www.genuinescooters.com/g400c.html It's like a modern '70s Honda. I think I'll stick with my Suzuki TU250X though.

You missed this 360 on Bring-A-Trailer, but check into the comments and you will see that the guy who sold it deals in CBs and has others.

The 450 was a nice bike, more power and smoother than the 350, sounded better, too.

I would also be interested in a Yamaha RD250 and/or a Suzuki GT250 both from the '70s and in the above described condition. Better yet I want a time machine.

I'll have to add the late '70s Suzuki GT185 to the wish list.
