    Hello all, I have a 1974 CB450 that has a 1975 500T motor that was put in it by a local motorcycle shop after my 450 motor died on me. I have been continuously restoring and repairing this motorcycle for over a year now, and yet have only ridden it (while it was running correctly) maybe twice...
  2. Electrical Discussion
    I am deeply confused as to why my wires aren’t matching up. Any ideas? Please see the photos of the controls and wiring that came with my 1975 Honda CB200T. I feel like there are way mores wires than or needed in the left hand control, there just aren’t enough ports to plug them all in. Any help...
  3. Electrical Discussion
    So, I'm not in over my head and over budget with my CB200T build. I'm not much of an electrician, and from what I can tell the harness that is on the bike is not in the condition it needs to be in. Obviously, the easiest solution is to buy a complete wiring harness and plug and play. Is this...
  4. Tips And Tricks
    Bought a 79 cm185t as a learner (hadn't been back on a bike in 3 years) and it ran when I got it. I had planned on riding it for a bit and then giving it to my girlfriend, but she wanted nothing to do with the thing. Held out for a little while, and then the electronics started to get wonky...
  5. Project Logs
    Hello all! Glad to have found this forum for help. I am a 20 year old college student who is absolutely in love with vintage Honda motorcycles. I purchased a 1974 CB450 about 2 months ago in rough shape, and have been slowly restoring it back as original as I possibly can. HOWEVER!!! After...
  6. Tires, Wheels, and Brakes
    Hi I recently purchased an old 1982 honda CB400n in quite good condition, except the rear wheel, or rim I should say. The seller provided a replacment rim, but it is sadly not the same as the one on the bike. (Different colour and size? See pictures) so the rear wheel was not broken per say...
  7. Electrical Discussion
    I recently changed the battery on my newly acquired 1975 cb500t and I noticed smoke coming from an electrical connector. I've since identified the source as the rectifier/regulator, but while searching I saw this little box dangling down under the electrical compartment. Any idea what it could be?
  8. Electrical Discussion
    Hello! I have a ‘71 SL 350 cafe racer sort of build. Obviously this bike never came with turn signals, but I’m a fairly new rider and wanna add some tasteful, preferably LED turn signals to it. I’m very new to working on the electrical aspects of the bike so would appreciate any advice anyone is...
  9. Engine Discussion
    Hi, Repost of my question under the unspecified bike category. Not sure where i should be posting. "I am new to this site and also kind of new to 'bike mechanics'. Just bought a project bike - 1989 Honda CB400t/hawk. In the videos it ran great but the prev owner informed me that the...
  10. Electrical Discussion
    Hello, I have been working on my buddies 1985 CB450SC Nighthawk over the past couple weeks. The bike is able to idle, but whenever any throttle is given it starts to die. it seams to die inconsistently, one sec it would rev alright for a sec then the next it would die immediately. Do you know...
  11. Engine Discussion
    I am going through the process of tuning up a cb500t recently bought and I am having the worst time with the oil drain plug. At first it wouldnt budge, but after a trip to the store for a giant breaker bar and 19mm socket I was able to get the dang thing to move. Now it seems to be just...
  12. Fuel Supply and Carburation
    Hi everyone! I’m relatively new to the realm of restoring motorcycles and was wondering if anyone had a diagram of the fuel lines for a 1964 CA77. I can’t seem to find one anywhere. If anyone could help, I’d greatly appreciate it!!
  13. Manuals and Technical Documents
    Hi everyone! I was hoping someone might be willing to share a restoration guide for a 1964 CA77. I’m relatively new to restoring bikes and have never done one before, but this was my grandfather’s bike and I’ve already got it running sort of. I was hoping to sort of educate myself and learn as I...
  14. Electrical Discussion
    Where to start, I guess you'll probably need to know what bike this post refers to... 1978 CB400T HawkII -TLDR at bottom- Bought it as a project a couple years ago, with little to no experience and expectations through the roof. Since then I've got it to start and idle, although not...

    Hey folks, I am now the proud owner of a $60 1980 Twinstar. As you know, all of these are 6v, but I have some things I'd like to do that involve 12v. I know its not the easiest thing, but I found a kit that *should* work, but I wanted to get some input...
  16. Electrical Issues
    I've got the below mentioned CM185 Twinstar. It's on a 6V system of course, and ... well the headlight is useless. I have found a decent number of 12V upgrades, a few I could probably make fit - but of course they wouldn't work. I keep hitting a brick wall in the 6Volt territory. Long...
  17. Electrical Discussion
    I bought a CL175 this summer. The bike ran well with no problems, but after being away for a couple weeks I went to start the bike and nothing... No lights would even turn on. I went first and fully charged the battery. (I did this out of my shed with the battery still fully connected to the...

    I just purchase a 1969 Honda CB450, and its a basket case. Honestly, I purchased it impulsively, and now I am at a complete lost. I've had friends say to look at forums, so here I am. I'm trying to figure out what different types of engines will fit inside the body, without needing to fabricate...

When I purchased the bike it was in good mechanical order expect for a couple electrical issues that I have competently diagnosed and fixed over the past couple days.
