1972 Honda CB350F/Four, 347cc. Registration number HVG 524L. Frame number CB350F-1025797. Engine number CB350FE-1025844.
In 1972 Honda released the CB350 Four, aka ‘CB350F,’ its 347cc four-cylinder engine was actually the smallest production 4-cylinder engine in the world at that time, it redlined at 10,000 RPM. Like its bigger brothers, the Honda CB350 Four had a front disc brake and electric starter.
The engine was incredibly smooth, but only made 34 hp and couldn't go 100 mph, despite a 394-lb curb weight. In contrast, the 326cc two-cylinder Honda CB350, aka ‘CB350K,’ made about the same power, was 136 pounds lighter, which made it quicker. Plus, it was cheaper to run and service.
As a result, Honda sold 319,712 two-cylinder CB350s in the US from 1968-1973 before replacing it with the CB360, in comparison, only about 70,000 CB350Fs were made before the bike was replaced with the CB400F. It was never sold in the UK.
HVG was imported form the USA by Weatherleys Motorcycles of Harleston in 2013 and sold to our vendor, the MOT at the time showed 18,262 miles, today it is 18,615. He has left it original apart form rebuilding the engine.
Sold with the V5C, dating certificate and various receipts, it is being sold due to a lack of use.
