Well... What are you waiting for. Personally; I would hold out for a 1970 CB350 in turquoise/white. IMO it has a more classic look.

Sounds like the same thing Tarheelguy went through with the fuel tank recall. Something about the injection system was messed up on another year IIRC. I could be mistaken though. Other RC guys here could offer better info.

I'm with you on that. I did see a handful at bike night last year though. I think they're only excusable if somebody had a disability and still loved to ride.

OMG - How about this one !

And I quote " This bike is complete with the exception of the cylinder head and exhaust pipe. It is a roller but wheel bearings are a little stiff due to sitting outside. "

What is wrong with these people ?
