Guys -

I have an entire CB450 K4 front end (less the triple clamp, which is cracked), as well as a decent set of mufflers (normal scrapes and tarnish on the sides near the frame, but no rust or holes).
Can't give them away though, and shipping would be kind of scary.

Also have an almost complete '79 CB400T2 - less than 3,000 miles on the bike, couldn't get a title, so it goes for parts. Wheels, forks, mufflers are gone, everything else is here.

Let me know if you need any of it.

Gary -

I'm in northern Indiana, zip is 46350.
And yes, they're heavy.
Also have a couple pairs of headers - one pair is ok, the other has a gouge in one.
I can send you some photos if you decide you're intersted.

Hi Bill,

Would you guess-timate the weight to be around 65 pounds??? give or take??? That being a starting point I'm looking at nearly $150 just for shipping...I think for now I'll bow out gracefully and hope they can find a home closer to home. ;)

Thanks though. I have a feeling every couple hundred bucks is going to come in handy with more pressing issues during rebuild. I know you know what I mean! :lol:

Good grief, where do you live, anyway???

I'm thinking $35-$40 shippimg.
At least, that's the shipping on similar EBay items lately, from the west coast to Chicago area.

Ah...I'm in Canada. So it's considered international and the price goes up by a factor of 12 or something ridiculous. For instance, from your zip to Seattle WA, the same shipment is $44. (Which is further from Indianapolis than Calgary by over 500km...go figure :x )

I suppose it has to do with clearing customs etc...

The forks measure 29" from axle center totop.
As you can see, there's rust in the areas that were under the boots and fork ears.
But the area that the seals go over is good.
Both will need to be cleaned up, with new seals, for sure.
The right fork compresses easily enough, but the left one seems really stiff.
But they were never used by me, and have been sitting here for a year and a half.
They did both compress ok when I first got the bike and took them off.
the fork caps are kind of ugly, too. Someone has beat them up pretty good, and they have rust.
This was a CB K4

The caliper was rebuilt and painted red by the PO (??).
The fender is in pretty good shape, minor pitting, but no real rust, dents, or scrapes.
