    Candy Apple Red. Use for restoration or parts. Nice 1972 CB350 with
    19,626 miles. Engine is stuck. But, if you're even some what
    mechanically inclined it's an easy fix, especially on these 350's.
    There is a title too. Theres easily $350 worth in parts here as well,
    so if you decided to use it for parts, you will be set.

    What will it take to get this bike running, is unfreezing an engine an
    "easy fix"?

  2. Depends what caused it to seize and how badly it's seized. Some
    releasing fluid poured down the bores, and left a few days, might do it
    (but even then you'd be advised to replace the rings and maybe hone the
    barrels).

    Or it could be stuck tighter than you-know-what, in which case you'll
    practically have to destroy the engine.

    At that price, certainly worth a punt. Nice little bikes.

    I got myself a late 60's scrambler 350 they are worth it at that price
    even if you can't get it running and want to part it out ,you will find
    buyers for the parts .
    They also are used for building low buck choppers and customs the bike
    is quick different people have told me they will take off and their top
    speed is around 80 mph and cruise easily at 55 mph, a great little bike
    to scoot around town or on the local highways (just stay off freeways or
    the interstate thats too dangerous for this bike) ,but you have allot of
    options with it at that price .
    Here is a site too check to see what people have done with bikes this
    age and vintage : www.ironcross.net and check out the articles ,it shows
    very easy and inexpensive ways to build a custom or chopper and the list
    of companies that can give you ideas what to do with it or help you out.
    Good Luck and if you get it have fun ,nothing is more satisfying than to
    bring back to life a lifeless bike and telling people I did that, just
    be patient doing it.
