His grid positions and jetting notes were still scribbled on the tank in black magic marker.

Modifikasi Honda CB350. I got the CB350 assembled and started for the first time on a Thursday evening, just 12 hours before practice was scheduled to start for the 14th annual Corsa Moto Classica at Willow Springs, round three of the AHRMA Historic Cup Roadrace Series.

Modifikasi Honda CB 350 Twin 1968. Honda introduced the 350 scrambler with this single 8.5 x 11″ color page in 1968. This pre-production brochure was prepared using a prototype aided by an artist and airbrush (note Honda’s qualifier “All specifications subject to change without notice” at bottom).

A different front fender, lacking braces but with a sharp cut front edge as shown, was used.

Although the brochure below shows two separate chromed exhaust pipes exiting the muffler, the production models had two unplated exhaust pipes enclosed in a single chromed surround. The production CL350K0 also had both a center stand and a silver-painted side stand.
