1968 Honda CB350 Cafe Racer


Here’s a beautiful bike (nice job! to the builder). It’s a 1968 Honda CB350 twin that has been crafted into quite the well-done cafe racer. And check out that seat! I admit to never having seen one like that before with the narrow front to match the frame rails, and then the wider back section. I would guess that with a rider on it, the shape becomes perfect. Overall, a nearly flawless buildup that doesn’t appear to be a trailer queen.

On to business. The seller’s feedback appears to be good, and the price is at $2,000 with 5 days left. Given that there are 4 bidders already, I would guess that this bike will go up in price before the auction closes. Buy-It-Now, which is set at $3,250, will disappear if the price gets close, so if you think that’s a valid price (I do), you might want to consider that option. Good luck to everyone who’s interested in this bike!

    being a lover and owner of the Honda 350, I like this bike…a lot. The tail section is reminiscent of the Norton Atlas..very cool…this little bike has a lot going for it…except..a little pricey for a Honda CB350..I know there is a lot of time, love and $$ put into it..but lets look at the real world…$3250??? Especially with JC Whitney mufflers??
    It’s a really nice bike and incredibly well done, I don’t mean to take anything away from it..just seems a bit pricey for today…

    I have been a fan of the cl350 since I first spotted one in 1970, and I have recently restored a cl350k1.
    I like the first two models. I have seen a few customised 350 cafe racers, but never any so thorough as this. I like that frame, the styling no frippery no flashness, just pure honsety, This bike has what is needed and thats all.
    and a paintwork that says the same. I would like it bike but you couldn’t send it to Australia.
