Rich.... I don't think that would help, they are moulded plastic, I believe the "crazing" is from sunlight exposure.....There are some metal reproductions out there, but they just say Honda, (no 450 underneath) and they aren't that cheap either....... I believe the "european" versions had different wings....(Check out Znabb's bike)
If you search ebay .co.uk item no 220515925350 think there may still be one pair repro plastic left at £59.99. I've just had 1 pair and for the price they are reasonable.Could only really fault the flash lines on letters on 1 of the ones I got.At least not a bad price considering how much originals fetch. Regards Chris.
For very nice plastic repops that are very affordable, last time I checked they were $55 contact Ray Bryne at [email protected] I've bought several sets from him for 250 & 305's and have seen the 450's. Everyone I know that has purchased these from him has been very pleased with the quality.
