A friend of mine has this Honda sitting (I kid you not) in his barn near Alpena.

Any info yall can provide will be helpful, he's thinking of restoring it. Also it would be great if anyone could recommend a good vintage Honda forum that would be helpful.

just so happens I have one... looks like that'll clean up real nice. right off the bat I can see about $600 in parts needed.

Thanks guys, this is great.

Jon- Is there a good source for parts online?

Lee - I'm familiar with Phil, in fact I sent him a note as well.

I have restored a couple of the old CL350's, I got any parts I needed at my local Honda Dealer. No problem getting parts for these classics. The bike pictured with its low miles may just need a clean up and tune, guys like survivors better than restos.

5600 miles it shouldn't need any major work to the internals. so that leaves the basics to get it running and basics to make it road worthy. i'd love to get it going, I love old bikes !!. I repair a lot of shit that I don't post on here, kind of don't wanna seem like i'm spamming if you know what I mean. shit I bet the valves are still in spec lol
parts, yup dealer can still get you most of them hard to find parts. Mr. Honda was the man by backing his products with parts. since he passed away it has started to change and people are buying everything up and reselling shit on ebay and online. I giggle when ebay cost more than the dealer lol

The "73's were red or metallic blue with a white scallop. This is a '73. And yes that is me, at age 15 in 1979. This was the first bike I had plates on when I turned 16.

That would be a plain. Look at these guys for parts. Bring your tools. I went there for some trail 70 parts and they pointed to the yard and said out there, maybe third shed down.

or buy online and save a lot of money !!! as it sits id go no higher than $400 if it spins over and titled. your looking at around $600 right off the bat for repairs. looks like a nice bike to save.I have a complete parts bike that spins over if you need anything. i'll give you a great deal on parts. I paid $50 for the bike and saved it from going to the shred.

Hell with a parts bike it would be easy. A battery, points (under the sliver cover at the end of the cam), clean the carbs and maybe look at the valve lash. It should fire right up.

yup, then add tires, tubes, chain, cables, F & R brakes, air filter, maybe petcock rebuild kit and so forth and you have a cool little bike
EDIT.. better get a new coil too. if you buy it, you gotta do it for passion. all the small parts add up quick and probably not much profit in it after all said and done. I like these small bike to bomb around town on

Hey Jon -

One of the challenges is that they dont make the airboxes any more. They are a filter and an airbox all in one.

What are people doing to fab up replacements?

junkyardjon

You could run pods, not a big deal like alot of people make it out to be. Could also make a airbox, not a big deal either. I might have a box sitting around, I'll check my stash at the junkyard

[edit] oops, I just noticed you already answered. Whats a pod?

Thread resurrection!

I think he needs an air cleaner - back then the filter and the housing were all one part, apparently very difficult to find now.

Ideas?

I am 99% sure I have that same bike... as a kid, it stopped running and was left in the barn at my dads for YEARS till the barn fell on it, I think they just pushed it outside and it's still in the weeds... SO forgot about it!!!!!!!! OMG!!!! Memories!!!!! I'm going to go over and see if its still there!!!
