Hey I'm new to the site and I have a question. I bought a 72 honda CL 350 Twin a couple of weeks ago with a stuck engine. I was talking to a guy at the donut shop about it and he mentioned a 4 cyl 550 he had that is a good engine he would sell me in the situation that my 350 needs a rebuild. Would it be a bolt up engine swap or no?????? Any answers appreciated

The 550-4 Honda was an excellent bike.....but the frame is ENTIRELY different than a CL-350.

A "bolt up" engine swap won't work; not even close.

IIRC, the 550 was a shaft drive too.

Dang well that's a let down, those bikes look extremely similar in pictures and btw all of the ones from the 70's look to be chain drive
