Hi everyone.
my CB 450 K1 had these rear shock ABS once.
i need them to restore my bike back to it's original shape ( this way they can give me the historical certificate and a new registration plate )
the only problem is that they seem unfindable
i only find the CB 77 ABS. i think they are very similar but i don't know if they are the same.
can someone help ? thank you in advance and sorry for my english

I wrote an article for this site all about refurbishing original KO shocks and also showing the differences between KO & K1 rear shocks.It was made a 'sticky' years ago.If you want to view it just type CB450 REAR SHOCKS in the search box and go to page 3. Regards Chris.

Chris's work is good and if you follow his method you will restore them well. However I would consider Hagon Shocks. You might have to paint the shroud though. I used the black shroud for my 450 K0. The big advantage is that they are a far superior shock and make the ride much better.
