Honda CB250/350 (1968-70) - fake police motorcycles?

The two white motorbikes are early Honda CB250's or 350's (since this is a Japanese movie, 250 more likely?). They just seem to be ordinary bikes painted white. They carry no police equipment, as far as I can tell. They might have been painted over just for this movie.

Of interest, this Australian item from the Northern Territory Police Museum:

This shows what is claimed to be a CB350 police motorcycle (it can't be a 1967 model, as stated - (a), the CB250/350 appeared in 1968, and (b), the fuel tank and side covers are those of a much later K3/K4). I don't know if it's genuine or not. It has the CB450P headlight and speedometer (which would make sense - economy of scales).


Also, CMS Parts in the Netherlands sell parts for a "Honda CB350P4 POLICE TYPE" (!).

So, it's quite possible there indeed was a factory-produced CB350 Police model. Just not the two bikes shown above.
