I always liked those little buggers. At $250 you don't have much to lose.

Looks like changing the registration is going to be a bit of hoop jumping.
Even though i have the VIN since there is no plate on the bike, and it hasnt been registered since they went to electronic filing they have no access to the information on the bike or even who owned it when it was last registered.
Now i have to pay for a VIN verification, write a affidavid that is notorized on how the bike came to my being and all known history on the bike, blah blah blah.
So i have to buy it before i can get the VIN verified, then take that in. when they accept that its time of the affidavid then it goes to someone to get approved.
@250 why not though right??
i will pick it up thursday I hope and post pics!

The 350 fours had anemic power but overall a good machine. they sound sweet. Good pipes are like hens teeth. spares are fairly plentiful on fleebay. At $250, buy it. The parts alone are worth far more. If you can eventually title it, great, if not part it out. BTW the cb350 twin is actually faster than the four

Explain to the guy all the trouble you'll have to go through to title it. Bring 2 Benjamin's and wave them in his face while you offer him $200.

This was one of the sweetest engines Honda ever produced. It's a no-brainer, you'll be able sell it for more than you paid for it even if you do nothing.
This was mine while I was in college.

Cool2 could be fun.................

Find an old Kerker 4 into one pipe....
It will take some time to set up correctly.....willl SOUND EXCELLENT.
Do NOT let him FOOL you! Those CARBS WILL NEED SOME WORK and adjustment WILL make YOU CRAZY!
Possible TIMING CHAIN!
Make sure it is COMPLETE>
With the registration, shit.....and the owner is YOUR FRIEND.....Offer him $100. and have another $100 BILL (not a bunch of crap singles, etc.)
Get it and see what you can do....
Worst case you loose a little $$$ and learn a few things.
IF no good, either sell or part it OR JUST SMASH IT TO BITS WITH A 12lb (whatever kilogram that is) SLEDGEHAMMER and kill it for good.
Have some fun.
One of my college roommates had a lovely green one with the Kerker pipe and a STOCK AIRBOX......It went through a few of my friends and was very reliable.
Did I mention how it SOUNDED?
See 'ya!
