We are happy to have this sweet 1970 Honda CB350 in our window this month. The bike belongs to one of our customers Allan who picked it up a few years ago and brought it back to road worthy shape. It always put's a smile on our face to have an old red bike in the window and this one certainly does that. I asked Allan a few questions on his stewardship of this classic.

How long have you had your CB350?

Spring of 2018

When you bought it were you specifically looking for a Honda CB350 or did you just see it and fall for it?
The 350 was my first motorcycle. For some reason I had it in my head that getting an almost 50 year old 350/360 was the move. When this one came up on Kjiji I went to go see it and bought it pretty much on the spot. The bike was super clean and I loved the color scheme which made my impulsive purchase pretty easy.

Did it need much work when you bought it?
I wisely bought it without even turning it on. I took it to Whealy Motorcycle Repair and Alan got it up and running in no time. After some electrical finessing, a good carb cleaning, tuning, oil, new rectifier, a new battery and tires I was pretty much on the road.

Since you've owned it, what changes or upgrades have you made?
I wanted to keep the look of a 350 that would have been modified in the 70s, so the mods were minimal and aesthetic. I sent the seat out to Aro Upholstery to get redone. Alan trimmed the front and rear fenders and we popped on the Lucas-style rear brake light to clean up the giant stock lighting setup. I replaced the big old turn signals and that was pretty much it. The tach/speedo and bar replacements were done by the previous owner.

You also have a newer Triumph Scrambler, are there places you prefer to ride your CB350?
The CB is loud and slow and It’s cruising-wheelhouse is 40km / hr which makes it a really fun bike to ride around down town. It’s size makes it great for zipping through most of the downtown gridlock.
