My 1972 Honda CL350 Scrambler is original and in EXCELLENT condition. It is not museum pristine but considering the year, the miles are incredibly low and it is ready to be taken to the next step or preserved or ridden as is. It has under 2200 original miles and runs like a sewing machine.

This is a VERY COLLECTABLE motorcycle. It's so hard to find one with mileage so low and in such excellent starting condition. Even the tires are original. They are not road worthy but I left them on to prove the originality of the bike. If you plan on riding this beauty, you will need to have them replaced.

For those of you unfamiliar with the specs of this amazing motorcycle, I have provided them below for your review.

The bike starts on the first or second kick everytime. The electric start is functional but the current battery is too low to make it function. Horn and lights all work. Blinkers come on but aren't blinking....either battery or flasher. The bike is running a bit rich on one cylinder...probably needs carbs gone through or at least to be ridden with a good fuel additive to allow things to loosen up. However, it does run and is operable right now. It's a true survivor.

The bike is a New Mexico motorcycle...thus the complete lack of rust. It was garaged the entire time. The seat is in excellent condition and overall the bike shows very nicely. Chrome and paint are excellent for the year.

THIS BIKE IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

However, it is certainly a pleasure to look at and to remember what a great bike these versatile bikes were and are. Even today, they do a great job of offering a dualsport ride: both in the dirt and on the street.
