In 1968, Honda released their 350. It was a refined and updated parallel twin. It, too, featured twin carburetors and an electric starter. Now a five-speed transmission was standard. This engine would provide a platform for their CL and, later, SL series. Carburetors were changed to Constant Velocity type units. Now the instruments were located outside of the headlight. The frame was a full cradle arrangement instead of using the engine as stressed member. There was a separate tachometer and speedometer. The tanks had painted side panels, and they still utilized a drum brake. This unit has excellent original paint and the original exhaust. All the cycle parts on this bike are close to perfect!
