Make an OK parts bike for somone. Offer $50 then clean it a bit. sell it on CL for a parts bike for $200. I would buy for parts if it were closer but not worth the gas money.

If you can get clear title to it for cheap, here's what you do; strip it, and eBay any salvageable parts. Then sell the bare titled frame for $125-250. I had a CL350 that I could have easily and cheaply turned into a nice runner, but there was no title. I would have paid for a bare titled frame and just switched everything over if one had come up for sale. I'm sure there are other people in the same boat.
I agree that this particular bike is not worth the effort. CB350s are not exactly rare. Save yourself the aggravation and start with something nicer.

Unless you're in it for the story and history...You'll spend more money on that bike than you would with picking up a clean, running example off Craigslist.
Hate to say it, but those hondas are a dime a dozen, so you can find them cheap anywhere (well, at least in atlanta.)
That thing looks all but toast with the amount of rust and corrosion on it.

But hey, if there's a story or something special about it...by all means, restore it. We all love to watch

No bash plate (at least on a 'K4), but a 19" front wheel, different forks, shocks, tank, side covers, seat, handlebars, gearing, and the obvious exhaust.

I recently bought this off CL for $120.00. Motor is stuck, tank needs cream. Don't pay more than $50 for your find!

I'm going to skip on it, and offer the guy to do the legwork and pay for the transfer. And by me paying for it, I mean a co-worker who was looking for such a project (his wife says no bike, he thinks if he restores it bit by bit, it will grow on her ) will be paying for the paperwork and eventually fixing it. He wants to do a cafe racer type mod on it.

Congratulations dodging the bullet - maybe. Sounds like your co-worker knows alot about women, though.

She says no bike, and gets a look at that thing, he'll be outdoors and the only thing that'll be growing is the knot on his head.

I'm sorry, but I don't get it. If the bike is a dime a dozen, wouldn't it be a lot easier to get parts?

As far as the money goes, I'm past caring when it comes to my '84 Nighthawk. Whatever.


If the guy has the will, the heart, the patience, and time, I say give it a try.

Who knows? Maybe it's really about restoring some of his own spirit.

Walk, trot, run, whatever away
If I was going to spend my time and money on a barn find like that pos, it would be a more rare and desirable bike.

Parts being available does not make a bike any cheaper to rebuild.
You can find a running example of this bike on almost any corner of the earth for under $500, making this bike nothing more than a few parts and worth its weight in scrap metal.

...hmmm....looks vaguely stolen, like someone tried to hide it with a brush and house paint, then tried to hide-hide it again in somebody's, uh, is that a barn or a furnace?

Take it if it's free, get it home, wash it, put some air in the tires, and get rid if it for $100-$200 to some poor sod who unfortunately doesn't know any better ( we've all been that guy at least once, or maybe 2 or 3 times ).Then move on with your cash to get something easier to work with.
