CB350?

Recommended Posts

larryblag

Kels and I watched a horror flick last night called "The Pact". I'll not spoil it by giving a synopsis but the main protagonist on there was riding what looked like a very nice CB350. Unusually we (well, me really) were treated to quite a bit of footage. Poor girl couldn't get it kick started barefoot though. You'll have to watch the film to see why she wasn't ATGATT 👍

The CL350 and CB350 were pretty common in California in the 70's so made into a fair few TV series and films (with either a 2-smoke or Harley sound track depending on setting and able to outrun anything but liable to lowside for no apparent reason !)

Can't say any really worked to well. Motorcycle Diaries was OK and of course CHiPs when I was 7!

 

This one won't have aged well https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019,_After_the_Fall_of_New_York

I seem to remember a scene in Vanishing Point (1971) with a young lady riding a Honda twin, a CL maybe, out in the desert, without any PPE on, in fact she wasn't wearing anything at all!

I'd offer to re-create the scene, but the CL still needs running in and the court order is pretty specific.

For a change they left the sound alone on this one - even to the point of the exhaust needing a little attention 👍

Wow. Just realised they filmed this in my town Bognor. That's not Southend, its Bognor pier!!!

 

Must have been almost the last footage taken of it in one piece as the end was destroyed in 1965/65 in storms. The entire theatre on the end fell in to the sea.

That's the trouble with doing a theatrical version of Titanic 👍

I can just about remember the pier when it was still complete, it seemed like a long way walking to the end with my little legs! 

I seem to remember it had a sort of shuttle railway running along a single on the left hand side, it open cars that were sort of streamlined and futuristic looking?
