    Currently the worst description of a CB 450 for sale

    If you have facebook, I invite you to look at the pics and compare to description. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...0874499776466/

    2 things stand out, though there are tons of unfortunate things that stand out.

    "Restored" is misunderstood by this person.

    "Custom" is a word being abused by this person.

    That is a hot mess. What is going on with how the rear shock is attached to the swing arm?

    The only thing more impressive than the rear brake linkage is those lower shock mounts. Good thing it's not running, lots safer that way.

    Says he lined the inside of the tank, judging from his custom work on the outside, no worries of it ever running again.

    I'm confused about the usefulness of "handlebars and mirrors sealed inside of fuel tank."

    That well routed wire to the "custom" tail light was the first thing to catch my attention (is that light off the trailer he used to haul the bike home? ), but when I finally noticed it, or rather its absence, the "custom exhaust from stock" has to be my favorite feature.

    Worked at a dealership could mean bike sales person or parts-counter person, not specifically a mechanic......

    Those "lowering blocks" on the rear shock are obviously incorrectly installed... There was supposed to be a hold-down bolt at the rear to prevent them from pivoting up.......However, you couldn't install it on a 450 unless you modified the axle-slot in the swingarm a LOT...OR, modified the blocks, adding a hold down....(the blocks were designed for use on the 500, 550, and 750 fours)......
