Hi, my name is Brad, I recently found this site while Buying some parts from the Common Motor Collective in Texas, I started to work on my 71 CB450. My brother bought it new and I purchased it from him in the later 70's. I have not run it since the later 80's. I have restored several old Ski Doo's and old farm Tractors, and I have 4 older Honda motorcycles the 71 being the oldest. I have a 82 CB900c, a 85 VT700c shadow, and a 84 CT110 trail. I'm going though everything on this bike, Adjusting and the cam chain, valves, timing, carbs checked and cleaned, tank cleaned and fuel valve rebuilt. Most rubber parts are showing their age. As long as I'm at it I'm polishing the cases and cleaning the frame and trying to make it look nice. It has about 16,000 miles on it so not too bad. I'll try to get some pictures taken of it and post them.
