Hi Everyone,

I'm in need of a clutch lever and mounting perch for a CB450 (Black Bomber, but any 450 will be close enough) If you have the brake lever and perch as well, I'll take them as a pair.

Please drop me an email at [email protected]


Thanks!

You do know that the switches are part of the clutch perch right? Also it must be a drum front brake you're speaking of on the brake?

A year would help the less knowledgeable here find items for you. ;)

GB... The perch was separate on the Bombers.... They took the same switch units and perches as a CB77....... I have an original 450 clutch perch, but have tentative plans for it.... A new re-pop copy is only about $15 per side, but the brake sides now have the "pocket" for the 70's type front brake-light switch........ Pic later.... Steve

Hi Fellas,

66--you are correct, it is the separate clutch-perch piece, not the full unit with the switches as with the later bikes. You mentioned repo's for 15 clams, where can I find those? I'm OK with using a new set so long as they look somewhat period correct...

Another question while I'm at it, I don't have an exhaust for the bike. I had the header pipes re-chromed but do not want to drop 800+ dollars for a nice original set of mufflers.

Any thoughts on what other mufflers look 1/2-way decent on these scoots?


Thanks guys!

-Mike

Mike.... The re-pop levers with their perches are available at/through JCWhitney....
The K1 and K2 CB-450 mufflers are close to correct for a 4-speed, having the same size and shape, (they only are missing the front top bracket on the muffler section, otherwise identical).......
For aftermarket, lots of choices, but you'll have to decide..... Dunstall replicas seem popular.....Steve

The Dunstalls are nice - but be advised that they are loud-ish, compared to stock or other types.
There's an Emgo muffler called the RoadHawk model - very nice look and substantially more quiet than the Dunstalls.
Just as an example, Wifey's CB200 (with Dunstalls) is quite a bit louder than my 450 (with RoadHawks).
