They are fun, fast revving and really sing through the gears. And yes, lots of engine braking. Pedestrians are I'm guessing surprised to see the thing they turned their head for is an ancient, undersized UJM. The challenge is many of the rubber parts are hard, like the carb boots, and you need four of them, and most of the OEM are almost equally old and hard, so it's ok as long as you don't mind chasing parts and spending $. CB350Fs would be ok to fix and ride, fix and flip not so much.
