Well, glad I could be your point of ridicule for the day !
Heck, I didn't respond to your original because I thought it was in jest!
It is my hobby. I say hobby to distinguish myself from the
professionals. I have been doing it over 40 years now but take what I
say with a grain of salt.
open language warning!
Motorcycle sales rank just below politicians, used car salesmen, and
lawyers in reputation. You've probably heard the three biggest lies
1) The checks in the mail
2) I love you
3) I won't cumm in your mouth
I would add a forth
4) It ran fine when I parked it. I think it just needs a new battery
For some reason BS and used motorcycle sales go hand in hand. There are
large numbers of honest people of course, but maybe 10% are unscrupulous.

So do you think I'm better off to chop it up and sell it for parts?
I'll post another dumb question some other time, just to brighten your
Getting it running is the best option. It may be worth more parting it
out, I have seen intact exhaust systems from that age bikes go for over
$300, but then you would be left with a bunch of parts that no one wants.
Make it run so they can hear it run, otherwise everyone will think you
blew it up and i.e. pulled the battery so no one could catch you. Most
people that are familiar with used bike sales would be highly insulted
or think 'the games afoot!' if you were to say this.
Then hope you find some rich old white guy who wants to relive his
school days of riding his trusty CB350 to JC. Just be firm on your price
and you may get it from someone who money doesn't matter to anymore. You
should learn some of the language though like "I am only the second
owner." or "Gas if $4/gallon, this will pay for itself in 4 months!"
