This Honda CL72 250 Scrambler was meticulously restored by its prior owner. It was my intention to license/title and ride it, but it is so nice that it should go to a private collector or a museum. The motorcycle has never been ridden since its restoration. It was started once on the previous owner on its center stand. He indicated the motor ran fine and that the transmission shifted fine and the motor ran good. I too recently started it on its center stand and the motor ran fine without any unusual noises, misfiring, or stalling. The Honda has many NOS parts including brake pads, spokes, spokes, tank pads, muffler guards, alternator cover, speedometer and other miscellaneous parts. All chrome parts have been professionally resurfaced and are in excellent condition. The front and rear fenders are also NOS and have been powder coated. The fuel tank and side covers have been powder coated also. The tank has a few dings in it that were not noticed prior to its restoration. The original gas cap also has a ding in it. This exquisite Honda was built from the ground-up. The frame and all other black parts were powder coated. The rims and tires (Cheg Shin) are in like new excellent condition. The motor was totally rebuilt by a well-known vintage Honda Mechanic. The Honda looks new with the exception of the dings on the fuel tank and cap as noted. The Honda needs some final sorting out to ride if you wish. The wiring is intact, but needs to be connected properly for headlight, tail and brake lamps to work properly. Also, the original horn (included) needs to be installed. The Honda will be sold with a Bill of Sale. The prior owner gave me a Title (shows a prior owner and a transferred owner) that was originally issued by the State of Illinois. The Frame number is CL72-1104932 which matches the number on the Title and the Engine number is CL-721105011. I will include the Title with the Bill of Sale and make a copy of it available to any interested bidder prior to the close of the Ebay auction. I have not licensed/titled the motorcycle in my name and I cannot guarantee that you will be able to title it. It is sold as is, where is, without any guarantees of operational status or title. You are welcome to inspect it prior to sale. Shipping (if necessary) is the responsibility of the Buyer. A $250 non-refundable deposit is required at the close of the auction. The balance is due within 3 days in the form of cash, cashier's check or wire transfer. The Honda will not be released until my Bank confirms final payment. No expense was spared to restore this beautiful motorcycle. It needs to find a rightful and good home where it can be preserved and enjoyed for now and posterity. More money has spent on the restoration than the Buy it Now price for this beautiful machine. Please contact me via Ebay if you have any questions. I can provide you with my phone numbers if you wish to discuss the Honda.

Here are the details on the resoration that was completed in 2007. All red parts (including seat pan) were carefully stripped and powder coated red.  Not quite the original (a little too red), but only the most knowledgeable would notice.  Still in perfect condition. Silver parts were painted Imron Silver with a clear coat by a fellow vintage cycle entusiast.  Rivets were left intact for originality.  There are two small issues currently with silver paint.  The tank has a small raised bump on top (assume there is a tiny pinhole in the otherwise rust-free tank), and the front fender has a small rash on the front lip from the move from Indy to Chicago.  Photos from each are included. Engine was disassembled and rebuilt with all new gaskets and seals.  Ring and valve job included.  Original bore maintained with cylinders honed.  Compression reads about 125 lbs with engine warm.  Gasket between engine case and cylinder seeps just a bit. Two NOS carbs were located and installed.  These are exceedingly rare. Parts from the original bike were used wherever possible to maintain originality.  Has original front and rear aluminum fenders.  Even the small tag in Japanese characters on the rear swingarm and the rare original chainguard are in place. Also, reproduction cable adjuster springs were installed on clutch and original front brake levers.  I assume that the speedometer I got with the bike was the original and it currently reads just over 5700 miles.  I have ridden the bike maybe 200 miles since restoration.  It mostly sits in the garage under cover.  Starts and runs fine although it can be cold-blooded and needs a strong battery and clean plugs to run at it's best.  There's probably a better old Honda tuner out there who could coax a little more performance out of it, but it does okay as is. I have taken it to Mid-Ohio VMD once and it has been to a couple of VJMC swap meets. Original wheels were re-chromed, re-laced and trued by me using a spoke set from Buchanan Wheels in california made using original samples. Wheel hubs were polished and handlebars and rear chrome grab handle were rechromed. Front forks were rebuilt with new seals and rechromed seal retainers. Front fender brace is NOS. I have owner's manual that I will include. No tool kit. Original exhaust, exhaust gaurds and rear shocks were not re-chromed to maintain originality. Plus they were in generally good condition.  Some minor pitting is visible. New seat cover purchased from CoolRetroBikes in florida and installed by local upholstery shop specializing in vintage cars and bikes.  They also installed new foam. All zinc hardware, pegs and sidestand are original and were replated by me using a Eastwood plating kit. Battery tender installed and included.   Frame number is CL72 1001828, Engine Number CL72 1001805.

1965 Honda CL72. This is the last year of CL72 sales in the US although they continued to be sold in Japan and elsewhere. This bike is NOT a Show Bike. It has flaws; it is not 100% stock and correct. It is NOT restored to be like it came from the showroom in 1965. It is, however, a nice bike that is assembled in a “Retro” fashion, sort of like we did back in the day when we wanted to make our scramblers stand out from other stock machines. My first freeway legal bike was a CL72 just like this one. I collect early Japanese bikes and belong to the VJMC and CJMC. I bought this bike to take on vintage rides but ran across a really nice original, unrestored ’66 CB450 Black Bomber that I am now going to use as my vintage rider. The bike starts on the first or second kick. Does not smoke and shifts through all the gears. The clutch is new, replaced by the fellow I bought it from. I put in a battery that is used, but is holding charge well. All the lights work, speedo works, horn honks, clutch and brakes all function like they should for a ’65 Scrambler. The bike has good compression, only has 12,750 miles on it so is in great shape. I did add new air cleaners. The chrome is fair to good. Pipes have been shortened and Snuff-R-Nots added. Some flaws in the chrome, but overall they really look fine. The wheels are not perfect. There is some of the usual rust spots in the valleys, but in general they are good.

1966 Honda Scrambler , Bike was restored in early 2000's. It has 6700 miles since engine was rebuilt during restoration. It has an electronic ignition system that makes starting and reliability great. It has Dunlop K70 trials tires with approx. 3K miles on them. Also has a new throttle cable. It comes with a complete original tool kit, manual, shop manual (for the Cl72 version), original 2 into 1 muffler and spare clutch cable. It runs great and is in excellent condition. I have detailed pic of front rim that has slight dent on rim. It was re-chromed this way when restored and it is in balance. While you have to really look for it I am trying to show any imperfections for a potential buyer. I have been running it on non ethanol fuel and it seems to really like that. Bike is in Central Florida so if you are coming down for Biketoberfest you can arrange to see/ride it. I will still take it for short rides so it may have more than 6700 miles on it! I am not interested in trades and payment should be either cash or a bank check that clears before I will ship it or you can take it home. Any questions please contact me. Tim $6,300.00

Such is the case with Honda’s CL350 The CL350 used a totally redesigned engine, displacing 325cc, for more of all that. This is not to say that the inaccurately named 350s weren’t perfectly agreeable bikes. With a claimed 36 horsepower coming from the parallel-twin engine, a wide, comfortable seat and amazingly neglectable dependability, the bikes won over countless riders. In fact, for many years they were Honda’s most popular sellers. The CL350 was a “street scrambler,” with a cross-braced handlebar and high-mounted, exhaust pipes that looked like chromed sausages. ’72 Candy Panther Gold version owned by Jim Nickerson and previously part of a Honda exhibit in the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum at AMA headquarters in Pickerington, Ohio, into a dirt bike. But a CL could be coaxed into occasional goat-path duty. In fact, two riders won the 1968 Mexican 1,000 off-road race on a CL350 with upgraded suspension, wheels and frame. CL350 lasted six years in the Honda line, then the company reworked the concept, creating the CB and CL360, with engines displacing 356cc. In the end, Honda’s 350s will probably be remembered like a lot of second-generation bikes. They didn’t create Honda’s reputation for building strong, inexpensive, reliable bikes, but they sure reinforced it. The Garage is pretty sweet too, check it out, its where my Bike likes to hang while she waits for her new owner!

It is remembered today as Honda's first sportbike. It is a landmark model in Honda's advances in Western motorcycle markets of the 1960s, for its speed and power as well as its reliability, and is regarded as one of the bikes that set the paradigm for modern motorcycles. The CB77 had, at only 305cc, a relatively big engine in comparison to most other Japanese bikes of the period, although it had performance to rival much larger motorcycles from other countries. It quickly built a reputation for reliability, and was equipped with luxuries such as an electric starter. The CB77 was built on the experience Honda had gained in Grand Prix racing, and differed greatly from previous models.It had a steel-tube frame instead of the pressed frames of earlier Hondas, and a telescopic front fork. The parallel twin engine (the biggest then available in a Honda) was an integral element of the bike's structure, providing stiffness in a frame that had no downtube, and was capable of 9,000 rpm. It could propel the bike at over 100 mph; as fast as British parallel twins with higher displacements, and with great reliability. It is now regarded as 'the first modern Japanese motorcycle...that established the motorcycle paradigm that we still operate under now, more than forty years later. Honda also produced a lower-powered 247 cc (15.1 cu in) version called the CB72 Hawk, which otherwise had the same specifications. In 1962, Honda introduced an off-road bike, the CL72 250 Scrambler, with the same engine as the Hawk but with a different, full-cradle frame with a skid plate and other adjustments for off-road use. In 1965, the CL77 305 Scrambler appeared, with the (bigger) engine of the Super Hawk but otherwise similar to the CL72
