Very nice congratulations on keeping it is great shape for many years.
I've had this one since it was new. Got it in the summer of '69 while in high school. This pic is from a few weeks ago...;-)
Just like the one I had in college.
I was a poor but earnest University student traveling from Minnesota to Canada to work on archaeology sites for a summer, a bike like the Superhawk was dirt cheap during the early 70's and it was all I could afford. Only over time and many miles did I realize what great bike I had.
I just converted my '69 CL350 to CB pipes. I know, that's sacrilege, but I grew tired of having to remove the entire exhaust system any time I needed to remove an air cleaner and/or carb, and the bike wasn't 100% stock anyway. Plus, the CB pipes add a couple hp, which is never a bad thing. Had to also replace the CL footpeg bar, kickstart lever, and centerstand with CB versions. With the look of the low pipes, I decided to remove the scrambler handlebars and throw some superbike bars on it, too. What spurred all this on was the need to take the carbs off, ultrasonically clean them, and adjust the float levels. It runs really well now.
No sacrilege, looks great.
Congrats on owning it since new! What a beautiful bike.The modern cafe craze can't touch that.
My 64 305 Superhawk is a project in waiting, not looking very good right now:
That's how it looked when I brought it home. I do have the side covers, though one looks like Swiss cheese rust wise. The engine is stuck, soaking happily with ATF/Acetone in the bores in hope to break things loose. But I got it as is for $250.
I saw these this weekend at The New Hampshire Motor Speedway

Purdy track bikes those Hondas are! I really like the look of the polished Akront style rims more than the wimpy looking stock steel rims on the Hondas. I plan to replace both rusty original rims on my CB77 with polished aluminum rims like those in the attached picture.
This fine Honda is just beggin' for a set of scrambler pipes
Been there, done that...ha ha
Ready for the ISDE!
Maybe LAB2V? Nah.
I finally got around to installing a nicer DLS brake linkage on the front of my '69 CL350. The original one (first pic) was extremely rusty and I had sprayed it with silver paint about 4 years ago to make it look a little more presentable. I bought the replacement linkage on eBay about a year and a half ago, and managed to keep up with where I put it all that time...lol. Anyway, while I had everything apart, I polished the backing plate and fork sliders. It turned out pretty nice...
Something's just not right here . Wonder what it is ?
