Two years ago my friend and I rebuilt my 70’ CB450 engine with the bottom end of 68’ CL450. It was riding pretty well for about a year (for the exception of some power loss). But about a year ago I went for a ride and while riding in 5th on the highway, the whole bike jerked like the clutch...
Greetings Fellow Riders!
Just to tell you a little bit about myself. I've owned the same 70' CB450 for 12 years. My best friend from high school is an engineer who has helped with me with every problem my bike has run in to. He's been fixing engines since he was 15 and he immediately got me...
Hello All! I live in Easley, SC (not to far south of Greenville) and recently-ish picked up a non-running 1972 honda CL-450. Got the bike home, dropped a batter in it, replaced a blade fuse some one hacked into the harness and the bike tried to run... but poorly, so now I am here. This is my...
I wanted to say hi and introduce myself. I live in Brooklyn, but I'm from Milwaukee, where I visit a lot. I have some old bikes there also. I've recently bought a cb450k2 1969 that runs nice, but the clutch is grabbing at the end. I ordered a new clutch plate and spring kit, so I'm...
Complete bike - but will need top end work, still a strong runner @ over 120psi compression - missing exhaust tip.

As I said in the new members area a few weeks ago, I'm the proud owner of a 1974 CL450 Scrambler and for the past two months I've worked hard to get her trip ready. It was an ambitious goal, considering the bike set up for 40 years, but she was stashed away in the corner of a fairly decent...
I recently picked up a second 450 drum for a project, and it's different than the other one I have, as well as the others I've seen.
Wondering if anyone knows what's up.
Thanks in advance.
These are pics of the one in question. No alignment dots, and has this dust shield thing.
I have a 1972 CL450 that I am trying to get back onto the road.
The starter clutch was not working. I purchased the rebuild kit and replaced it tonight.
Now the starter clutch it working...but after it spins the engine a couple times.....there is a loud clacking noise and then it stops...
Just to be clear, I mean the six inch lower tailpipe that installs on the back of the lower muffler. I found a NOS tailpipe which the original parts list indicates is the right part for the bike. The covers for the tailpipe are correct for the year, so I have to assume that the mufflers they...

I am building a 69 CL450 K2 and the wiring on it is really rough. There are some after market harnesses on eBay for a CB450 K0. Could I modify it to fit my bike?
Should I build my own? I'm new to motorcycles and the forum. Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks!
Hello all. I was an active member years ago... found my old intro here: http://www.hondatwins.net/forums/1-project-logs/412-intro-dallas-mild-cafe-cb360.html
That bike actually ended up as this:
We moved out to the east coast and bikes were put on hold for a few years. Now I have a 450...
