 Some of the worst of the worst on the 1968 CB350 prior to restoration. It appears there was a leak and splashing concentrated on this one area of the bike. The other side was not as bad.
 An NOS gear shifter and used linkage, a used muffler shield, and chrome re-plated points and carb covers. The original round engine side cover was polished and rest of the covers painted with Honda Cloud Silver paint. Carbs were dismantled and hardware replated with clear and yellow zinc as originally manufactured. Plastic side covers were repainted as were the original badges.

 The bike had been stolen and found wrecked, with the brake pedal bent up, the kicker flopping around and footpegs bent.

 Although there was a significant amount of surface rust, most of it came off well enough to stick with the original pipes. A lot of hand polishing and rust remover was used.
