Just bought a 1971 CB450 K4 to replace my KTM 390 DUKE as i am of age that when young was dreaming of 70:s bikes.
The bike is completely original and as i see in very nice condition.
It has been standing on a private collection for 5 years so will do some servicing before start to ride. CB450.jpg

Nice bike! Know the feeling, as a kid in the 60s and teen in the 70s, that 70s look is etched in my brain as "I. Want. That." Now we finally buy them . . .

Great looking bike TRS!

I personally think the K4 is a peach. Might be biased though! It looks great in the red!

Thanks for a warm welcome. Had the bike at the Swedish MOT yesterday, no problems. Here bikes older than 30 do not have to be MOT:d any more but mine had been off traffic for several years so had to get it done. But now it is done for ever.
Just ordered i new Metzeler front tire, it has a over 20 years old chinese tire that is both rock hard and square.
Will change the rear also to a new but i think the rear rim is not correct, it is the same width as the front and i understand it should be 1/2" wider.
Any hints would be appreciated.
Also if someone who has knowledge where to get service parts (seals, O-rings...) from Sweden or EU?
Find a lot of stuff in US but shipping, customs and taxes make it expensive to take home from there.

Find your model: https://www.cmsnl.com/
it's a good site to find out what parts are named and parts number. Then you can search for it on Ebay Germany or UK unless you want to buy it from cmsnl.
Here in Stockholm we have a Honda workshop called Hela Hojen and they can order pretty much all available original parts. I just ask for parts in their chat on FB.
A site in the UK, they also have good aftermarket parts I've heard: https://www.davidsilverspares.co.uk/CB450K4-SUPER-SPORT-1971-USA/
Orders up to the value of £60.00 - £6.00.
Orders in value of £60.00 and above - £20.00.
