I'm trying to find tires that will be similar to the original style on my 1968 CB450 Bomber.

Any suggestions?

I use Metzeler ME11 3.25x19 (front) and ME77 4.00x18 (rear) on my CB450. Front is also available in 3.25x18.
Good quality german tires with modern compound but vintage look. I really like their look and handling.

That is a great action photo!

I cant wait to get mine restored.

I think the bomber has to be the coolest looking of all Hondas & even cooler when it's on the road.

Thanks. I think the Bridgestone's look a bit too modern but the Metzeler's look great. Unfortunately they don't come in 3.00 x 18. Can I use 3.25 x 18?

3.25 = 3 1/4 inch. So the side wall is only 1/4" taller than the 3.00.

Answer, yes.
