dang them covers are shiney! what'd you do to polish those? What kinda maintenance does it take to keep them that way? were those tappet cover chromed?!

I just got some first overbore pistons for my CB. Looks like something got sucked into the combustion chamber--there are dents all over one piston and the head so I need a new head too. At least they're cheap! Hopefully I'll be posting up pics soon(CL or NoT!)

There are still a couple of things left to do but basically, here is the completed bike. I know I'm missing a screw on the heat shield and the turn signal needs to be adjusted. The front brakes are still not very good and I need new spokes and the hubs restored. I'm also still looking for the left side HONDA badge if you know where I can find a nice one.

The covers are polished on a buffing wheel. I did not spend a ton of time on them so they may look better in the photo than they are. I used aircraft stripper on them them to remove the factory clear. On some of them I used some 600 grit wet/dry to remove corrosion first. Tappets are polished. I don't know about maintenance since I just finished it up.

It is a good day... why? I hear you ask, well, I shall tell you.....

First I have a new front tyre fitted on the CL, in place of the original Bridgestone. and it is funny how a new tyre makes the bike look better and secondly I have a whole load of nice shiney chrome bits that I ordered, turn up, new mirrors, side panel grommets, petcock, etc, so it should be a good weekend, changing parts out. Now all I need is my new exhaust to show, and the NOS grey cables that I have ordered, and the old girl should look fine for the summer.

You seem to know quite a bit about these old 350s Cordless! expect a PM or two.....

So if you're not gonna use those CB pipes....wanna trade? I got a shiney G/S muffler all boxed up!
BG,

I missed your reply. I would be happy to trade the CB pipes for a G/S muffler but the right side pipe looks like this, unfortunately:



The left side pipe is fine. (I think the bike sat under a roof leak in the PO's garage.)

The right side pipe is rusty but not rusted through. Needs rechroming.

Still interested?

What brand front tire is that?

You really can't really see the bike, but check out those pipes! You can also see Mt. Hood in the background, towards the right.

It is my '72 CL350, K4. Completely stock, except for the rack. Going on 7k miles. And it is my bud's '82 Honda CM250, I believe, on the right.

I might have a set for you soon....just got an extra parts bike and my pipes are cherry.

A comment, and question for the CL350 afficianados! One is I love this site where in a month time you can find 5~10 guys restoring or ridind these great old bikes! Second, on the Cloud Badge, the side cover one, I have read or heard the background was the colour of the tank top even though the sidecover and headlight bucket was white....but, I see mine are black, so have they been resprayed, or is it possible they are off of a 1968 where they were all black backgrounds?

These are the before pictures

This bike was dragged out from under a tree after 20 years. The motor is frozen and the gas cap is rusted solid. Gotta start somewhere!
