Hey all,

I'm from Toronto ON and I am the new owner of a 1968 CB450 K1. She's currently mostly stock and I'm going to keep her that way until the end of the season. I was thinking of taking her apart in the winter and restoring her. She runs well... a slight tinny/rattling sound, but nothing a tune up can't fix, and also a slight problem gearing down, I can't feel it engage into the lower gears (not sure which gear exactly), embarrassing sometimes at a stop light when I get move.

About myself; I am 30, I love snowboarding been doing it for 10 years, just a bit of a sneaker freak (I have 55+ pairs of sneakers, I'm trying to cut down).

How I decided to get this bike; I originally opted for a newer model Suzuki GS500E because I really liked that naked look, then as I was looking and calling around for prices, I accidentally ran into a picture of the CB450 K0 Black Bomber and it was love at first sight! I couldn't believe how gorgeous that bike looked. I turned down any callback for the GS500 and started my search for a CB450. Then I discovered the world of cafe racers and now I'm a changed man.

I hope that the experts on this site can help me with my journey.
