High 50's in my CB350 Four. Which was much like this one:

Except I got mine for $150. Replaced battery, contacts, and started riding. Within a few blocks the muffler fell off , and Honda wanted $450 for a set of those fancy quad pipes. I opted instead for the $20 yeah-theres-baffles-in-their-officer straight pipe. Rode it like I was trying to earn WDC points and would get low 40's, which is what I'm shooting for driving like a pawpaw.

Note that this was a 400#+ bike. I can't find specs right now, but the p/w was pretty low.

I think I need to get another bike now D:

My bike runs on dihydrogen monoxide.
I like to use these acronyms
