A good friend of mine is moving on to a bigger bike and letting go of his immaculate Honda CB450. A lot of love has gone into this motorcycle over it's lifetime so I'm posting this in the hopes of seeing it go to another good home.
Location: Cincinnati, OH
Asking Price: $3,000
"I purchased the bike pretty much one year ago, from its second owner, who had also owned it for a year. He had all his work done at Western Hills Honda, and I have done all my own work since. Bike runs awesome, and just recently set points, checked timing, and overall got everything dialed in. She screams!"
- 1974 CB450K7
- Located in Ohio, with clear Ohio title.
- 5,700 original miles and change.
- Newer(as in put on in the last 2 years) Avon Roadrider tires.
- Oil changed every 800 miles
- Tank is coated and rust free
- All OEM parts were kept, and are included, from bars to CB pipes to original CB rear fender.
What I've done to it:
- Hagon rear shocks valved for a 200lb rider, maybe 1k miles on them total
- CL450 high pipes, which I believe are from a CB450K5. They aren't perfect, but they aren't rough. I bought the heatshield seperately, and it's 9.5/10 visually.
- Air filters have been disassembled and rebuilt with UNI foam filter material making them cleanable (OEM filters are no longer available)
- Emgo euro handlebars
- Emgo polished headlight ears
- New fork gaiters (also have brand new original honda OEM if you ever want to go back to all OEM parts)
- Relocated oem signals
- Scrambler mesh headlight guard
- Napoleon Baren chrome bar end mirror
- Brown barrel grips
- Lowered gauge cluster
- CL rear fender
- CL rear turn signals
- Lucas Taillight wired with OEM connectors (bike also comes with OEM CB and OEM CL taillights as well)
- New Battery fall '12
- Newer upper triple clamp (they are known to crack on CBs)
Bike is always garaged, lives on a battery tender, and has always been cared for—including letting the bike warm up a good bit until the cases are warm before riding(a must if you own a CB450 and want it to last.) The wiring is all stock and in good shape, and to me it looks like the rectifier has been upgraded. Bike does not leak anything and has had the petcock replaced.
If you have any questions, shoot me an email, thanks!
