Are the US taillight brackets on the CB 450 the same as the one on CB 500/550 and CB 750 except the CB 450 is painted black? Anyone on this forum got a 500/550 or 750 and would like to help me mesure the C/C distance between the mounting holes on the rear fender?

I don't have exanples of both/either to measure.....But I believe the later styles are identical (except for finish).... The early 450 used two different brackets/taillights...(prior to the large rectangular taillight).....
..... wondering why you haven't just measured yours as you have both a 450 and a 500/4.....(Or does your "K1" have the earlier bracket/lamp?)... :?: :D Steve

Yep... Must have something to do with the Department of Transportation's requirements for square inches of lighted surface.... I'll bet WE would prefer to have the "Euro" style ones here.... (At least I would).....Most of my customs end up with the "old" (small) CB77 taillight, or an aftermarket "Lucas" style one....LMAO!

Would the fact that a '74 CB750 K4 tail lamp bracket bolts right up to a '74 CB360 fender be of any help here??
It sure looks the same as the bracket & lamp assembly in your pics.
I could measure the old bracket later today if you really need it.

Rampage1967,
Thats good to know as the taillight bracket on the CB360 and the CB450 K5 seams to have the same Honda part no.

It would be a great help if you mesured the old bracket because I am not 100% sure exactly what model (K1-K5) my new fender is.

The rear or lower holes are: 1 & 15/16
The front or upper holes are: 1 & 13/16
The front to back measurements are: 9 1/4
Note: these are all with the rubber bushings in place and taken to the nearest 1/16 inch.

Thanks, thats also really good to know.


I will make one exception from the original style of my CB450. The black painted taillight bracket (84701-341-670B) is not as good looking as the chrome one on the CB500/550 CB750 (84701-341-670XW) in my eyes.

It will be kind of difficult tho to find one here in Europe as the bigger bracket was only sold on the US market. US Ebay here I come.
