I have a 1973 cl450. The engine is in bad shape and in a billion parts. Other than an engine off the same bike, what engines can I swap into this frame without too much hassle? 350? 400? 500? Newer, Older? Thanks, I would rather purchase a running engine and drop it in before I spend all winter putting mine together to find out that it is missing 2 dozen parts. Thanks.

A CB500T motor of the any year will fit. Also any year 5-speed CB/CL450 engine can be fitted... The four speeds are a smidge different but it's still basicly a bolt in (Pipe clamps and some other minor differences)

hope this helps

Any DOHC CB450 or 500T engine is a straight swap, although carbs are different on the 450 to the 500T and some later CB450's had a chain oiler....but still a straight swap.
