My name is Keith Litman and this is my 1973 Honda CB350 Cafe Racer. I bought it in the fall of 2003 with only seven thousand miles on the odometer. It was in fair condition and in stock trim. I spent much of the winter striping it to bare frame. After welding tabs to the frame for mounting the rear sets, the frame got primed and painted. The top end of the engine was torn down and cleaned. New pistons, rings, gaskets were installed and the cylinders honed. The forks, carburetors, front brake master cylinder all were rebuilt. I removed the stock crome fork covers and remounted the head light four inches lower using a set of aluminum brackets that clamp to the forks. The gages were moved closer together, flattened and lowered by five inches. I also added a set of slash cut megaphone silencers, one inch diameter aluminum turn signals, Tarozzi rear sets, Tarozzi clip-ons and bar end mirrors slung under the clip-ons. All of the work I did my self with the exception of the seat. A lady that runs a local shop did an outstanding job on it. This is the short list of things I have done to my 350. I still have a lot of work to get it just the way I want it.
I put just over a thousand miles on it last summer. It´s very reliable and a blast to ride as a daily commuter. Often I find myself choosing to ride the CB350 rather than my 2001 CBR929.
