    Yeah, at a quick glance that motor could pass for a cb450. You can tell the castings come from the same school. But open it up and...wow!

    What a cool engine. As much as I'd read over the years about their gear-drive DOHC 4 valve engines from that era, I'd never seen the actual internal parts except in a few pictures. Interesting that it was a 360 crank as well. Also interesting the upper/lower case arrangement. Great stuff!

    I read on the Honda 6 the cylinders were cast with the upper case to keep from destroying base gaskets. Maybe they were practicing on this earlier engine? I got a kick out of the brass? Skull combustion chamber.

    Yeah, me too - there was a lot to take in with that video. I guess that's one way to eliminate issues with certain gaskets. Imagine sliding a crank and 6 pistons into the top end/upper case all at once like they did that twin! I love how pristine the work areas are and how neatly they lay out all the parts. Pride in workmanship and production
