Lot 172: Honda CB350 Racing Motorcycle
Differing essentially only in engine capacity, the Honda CB250 and CB350 arrived in 1968, superseding their hugely successful CB72 and CB77 forebears. Although retaining its predecessor's basic architecture, the new overhead-camshaft engine was styled differently, with cylinders virtually upright, and went into a new tubular cradle frame that replaced the earlier spine type. Additionally there were now five speeds in the gearbox plus a twin-leading-shoe front brake. In more recent times the K4 version has become a popular choice among classic racers, so much so that the model now has its own races and championships. This race-converted Honda CB350 was purchased in Belgium from Paul de Knocker and has been used by the vendor for occasional sprints and two track days. Recent works has included starting the engine and freeing off the brakes. There are no documents with this Lot.
