    So I pulled this out of the barn the other day, put in a new plug, dumped some gas down its throat and she fired up just like I knew a Honda would. If you know what you are looking at then you know this is a one year only model, single carb, highly sought after XR350. Comes with very hard to find Hondaline hand guards and a working speedo/odometer timer module. She starts on a couple kicks, runs, shifts, and stops. Might need a little clutch adjustment. Now for the bad: ever since I have owned her there is a ticking sounds from the engine. I'm 99% sure the cam chain is stretched out. Its not a terrible job to do but it does take some time. Again its made this sound for the 5 years Ive owned her and hasn't gotten worse. Included with the sale is a new seat cover, new gas tank stickers, an NOS OEM exhaust cover plate and some odds n ends Ive collected including a cam chain guide which I would replace when changing the cam chain. NO TRADES are needed and no test rides without cash. Also, I live in town so the test rides are limited anyways. twosixtwo threetwothree sixthreefivezero. text works best. I will pull this ad when sold so no need to ask if I still have it.

    Cant decide if its a good deal or a money pit but aren't they all ? But un-chopped bikes are getting hard to find . If it has not sold by mid week I might go take a look at it.

    My friend Mark just upgraded his Wing from an 05 to a 12. He's selling his old one for the reduced price of $6,499-- the dealer just went through it and replaced parts and has it on their floor though it's still his bike. 105,xxx miles and many many more to go.

    I sent a PM, a Text, and replied above. No response(s) to any of them. CL posting is gone, so I guess it's been sold.

    Too bad...I would have loved to have seen it.

    They are worth it. I love mine, other than the requirement for 90+ octane.
