This bike has a lot of pristine parts on it. It would be easy to set it back down to stock height, replace the fork boots and paint it. A good stock left muffler is nearly impossible to find. I looked for three years to find one. It is in the rafters in my garage. I'm seeing clean stock 450s in Seattle going for $3500+ The market is blowing up on the classic Hondas. Try to find a nice '72 CB750. I found a two owner '69 750 in Chicago. It was a sandcast and the owner was asking $15000. It hadn't been ridden in 15 years.

I kinda like it how it is, drop the forks like James said and make it ride good. I wouldn't paint it. Way better than all the drab blacked out drivel people like nowadays. Get the chrome shined up. I bet it'd run good with not too much work.

Best quote of the day there!

Lefty - I agree with you on all the blacked-out stuff today (and drivel is a great word for it). would your wife like that king and queen seat? nice big backrest on that sissy bar... almost like a recliner. leave the front forks as is and do the Easy Rider touring thing

I looked around for a pic of my 71'cb750 we took on our honeymoon. Coffin tank, King/queen seat, drag pipes, chrome highway pegs, the whole nine yards. I sold off most of the chopper parts for a pretty penny. It's waiting for its dream restoration and a two up trip to see the redwoods someday. I post it if I find it.

Nice! I wish I'd been financially able to keep one of my SOHC 750s from back in the day... and I went for a ride with my local buddy who owns 2 CBXs yesterday and now I'm scheming to sell my V65 and look for a CBX - can't get there without selling one of my current two, and it ain't gonna be the 450!
