I'm a new guy. First post. Trying to rehab a 1970 Honda 450. While running one cylinder will fire, then the other side will fire. Thinking of converting the points to an electronic ignition system. Can this be done without many problems? And, does anyone know where I can buy the parts to...
Hello, I have been a long time lurker of project bikes and last year I bought one! It’s a Honda cm450c here is my progress so far! And yes it’s my first project so it’s not amazing.
in the beginning:
the rust was intensive over the whole bike to the point where I couldn't use the tank anymore...
I have a CB450 six speed engine left over from a project. The piston rings are frozen to the cylinder walls but the transmission shifts through all 6 gears.
I want it to live on so anyone who pays shipping or picks it up can have it for free.
I'm located in Belton, SC ZIP code 29627
Hi all! I've been really interested in a 1983 CM450A I found locally; does this bike have enough get up and go to sustain highway speeds (75-85mph) for extended periods? I've never ran an air-cooled bike before, so I'm not sure how hard it's pushed by riding hard. All of mine have been much...
I recently bought this bike, it was being converted into a cafe racer style, but previous owner stopped halfway through, so bike has been sitting for maybe 1-2 years.
The first thing I noticed is that Clutch will not disengage from the transmission - I have the bike up on the center stand so...
Luggage rack for 73-74 450. Chrome in pretty good shape as the pics attest, esp given its age. Rust is concentrated on the underside, as shown. Fit my K7 but the stamp on the luggage rack states K6. $55.00 plus shipping.
Complete bike - but will need top end work, still a strong runner @ over 120psi compression - missing exhaust tip.

The first CB I ever bought but I picked up a 550 four and enjoy that one way more. It's in pretty good condition and rides great. Lots of new parts, only non-stock part is foam filters. Has original exhaust, paint, and seat.
I tried posting it on Craigslist and Facebook, but the only people...
Just curious if anyone had a decent step-by-step or how-to on tuning carbs on a 1982 cm450E.
I think I would benefit greatly from a more seasoned mechanic's wisdom the subject.
I have the Shop manual that someone posted while back which has a decent rundown of this, but I think a veteran 450...
Thanks for letting me join the forum - super happy to be here! I'm posting from Seattle, home of the Pacific North Worst.

I ordered an oil...

I know this isn't the best time of year to be posting this... but my wife is spring cleaning in the fall and wants more room in the garage for winter. I'm looking to sell my Nighthawk 450. I just don't ride it as much as it deserves. I have two kids and not a lot of free time (wife...
New to the forum, and also new to motorcycles! (3 months riding)
The bulb in my headlight has burnt out. I am not used to dealing with sealed beam headlights. I have been looking online and am having a hell of a time finding a replacement. I am open to replacing it with a newer halogen bulb...

New to posting here but have gotten plenty of advice from its pages int he past and much appreciate it. I'm looking for the gearshift spindle for a 1974 cb450k7, or within a few years: too far back and the OEM number changes and I'm not sure it will fit however, if somebody knows better please...
