Just checking, did I miss something? I know of a CB450K0 & then also th CL450 later. But never heard of a CB450CA. Not fussing, Just sayin. (Not a big deal, ya know?)
Yeah, some of those KOs, like the 450 & the 750, demand a healthy price. Parts alone, can be a killer, much less the whole motorcycle. Only saw 1 CB450K0 and that was while I was stationed at Misawa AFB, in Northern Japan, from Dec 1967-Dec 1969. This one was pure stock, except the mufflers had been replaced with chrome straight pipe extensions (that had removable baffles).Top bid of $5,600 did not hit reserve.
Bill, I think the Ca reference was to California where the bike is located - it's just a nice K0Just checking, did I miss something? I know of a CB450K0 & then also th CL450 later. But never heard of a CB450CA. Not fussing, Just sayin. (Not a big deal, ya know?)
oh, okay I didn't realize. By the time I saw this one, I couldn't bring it up. So, I never got to see it. Several motorcycles, always will make me stop and pay attention and the CB450K0, is definitely one of them. Thanks, Tom, for your comment.Bill, I think the Ca reference was to California where the bike is located - it's just a nice K0
Sure will, Tom. Always like to cast an eye, on yet another oldie, especially that was as inovative as the Honda 450 DOHC model was.Bill, it's just my assumption that Ca means California, maybe not. BTW, it's still up on that link - I just looked and saw it's there, so give it another try.
That's a really nice bike too!
Thank you, Mark. I can't take credit, for the Super Hawk though. You see, I have a close buddy (like a Brother) who had always wanted to restore one and he new about me always wanting a Super Hawk & when I was stationed at Misawa AFB in Northern Japan, I still couldn't find one. But, I did find a 1966 CB72 (250cc) Hawk and totally enjoyed it. But it's been gone for a long time and I still wanted a Super Hawk. My Buddy found one, made a deal on it. Then He built it, which took care of His want and then, set up a deal between us and I have had this one, for about 4-5yrs now. In the meantime though, I have managed to get some parts together, one way or another & got myself a "titled" frame and an engine (which is said to run, just not nice, cosmetically). But, with all I have managed to come up with. I am slowly mocking up, what I want it to look like and will post the actual build, when I am ready (maybe by Spring of next year). ;-)That's a really nice bike too!
