I'm asking everyone here if they might have a Bomber Manual (CB450 4-speed) they could donate to The Cause.
I don't have one, and haven't seen one for sale anywhere on the internet or at EBay.
I would pay shipping in both directions, then non-destructively scan it, and of course provide you with a cd of the finished product.
I'll get it done as quickly as possible and return it to you in the same condition it was when you sent it.
This way it could be made available to everyone who needs it.
I have a massive collection of Honda manuals, but this is one I don't have, and have had a number of requests for it.

Any help??

Are you talking about the Service Manual or the Parts Manual. I think I've got a Parts Manual and maybe an Owner's Manual. I'll have to make sure. Bill ;)

I'm looking for the service manual, Bill.
I haven't seen one for a very loooooong time.

Sorry Bill, can't help with that one. I do think I know someone who would though. Gordon (Ilbikes) over on SOHC4 has done a complete, Very Thorough Restoration on a Bomber and did a Bang Up Job on a 450 that most folks would not have even considered using parts off of. Check with him. ;)

I was hoping you'd see this, Chris. I suspected you might have one, what with all your Bombers.

That should be the one - is it the 4-speed manaul??
What's the date on it??

Chris-

That sounds like the right (Bomber) manual - mind loaning it to me for a while??

As for the GB400, I have nothing on it at all - I've never even seen one of them, just a few photos, sorry.....

Hi Bill,
If you let me have your address I'll get a tracked price first from post office next week as costs to USA are horrendous.Due to rareity I'd only use a tracked service.They do come on ebay.com a few times a year and always make well over £50.00 Leave a while if you'd rather look around first, but I'll lend it you if you are stuck. Regards Chris.
P.S. I've got two original copies,would you mind if I sent the rather grubby one,its still perfectly readable but I'd hate to lose the best one,I've really no faith in the post office.Regards Chris.

Have a look on the back-bottom-right it will have, 66.1 etc and 3000 Printed in japan. The 66 is the year, the 1 is the month and the 3000 is the price in YEN. My copy is Jan 1966...

Does yours still have the fold outs in the back??

Did you ever get a copy of the Bomber manual? I found one if you still want to scan it.
Richard

No, never managed to lay my hands on a Bomber manual - I'd appreciate the chance to copy it.

PM me..........
