    Several months ago, I sent the top and bottom case for my '73 CB450 off to be vapor blasted (shout out to RestoCycle). The results are great and all my other parts have now arrived. However, while inspecting everything before beginning assembly I noticed something. I'm sure that the blaster...
  2. Black Bomber Crankshaft

    Miscellaneous Discussion
    Hi all, My bomber needs a new crankshaft, and it seems to be a huge pita to find! I posted on the looking for parts sub already, but I was wondering if anyone here might know where i could try to look for one, as ebay seems to be fairly thin right now. If only the later crankshaft could fit my...

    Have a 1969 K1 (blue, looks same as 1968), a 1972 K5 in red, both restored (latter has very low mileage and mainly needed cosmetic, electrical and carb work ) and a 1976 CB500T which has low miles and needed no restoration, just a new battery and starter clutch. It does not vibrate! Handles...

    By far my favorite Honda color. I've had this collection of NOS Candy Gold parts for my 1971 Honda CB450 sitting in my office for the past couple years. They each have their share of "shelf wear" but it will be a beautiful bike if I ever get the time to work on it. The parts came from the US...

    Miscellaneous Discussion
    To whomever will listen... I have had a 1974 CB450 for 8 years and I have never gotten it to run right. When I first bought it I blew the original engine. I had a shop install a 500T. Then it would never run right. I could barely hit 65 to get on the highway... I've tried everything at this...
