Re: 68 CB450 K1

Actually, I found the answer. For some reason I thought that I had seen different part numbers for the different years. I was wrong. They are all the same.

Re: 68 CB450 K1

It appears that my starter is toasted. Does anyone know if there are any interchange issues between starters for different years of the 5 speed 450s?

IMG_1475.JPG IMG_1474.JPG IMG_1473.JPG IMG_1472.JPG IMG_1466.JPG I managed to get the front end back together after finding a few sets of decent fork tubes. The lowers were stripped and lightly polished, the front rim and hub were cleaned up, and a new Avon Roadrider was fitted. I also managed to s...

Re: 400/4 restoration

The Z1 is one that I wouldn't say no to. I'm finishing up a KZ900, and it is a blast to ride. As long as it will fit into the shed queue, then you have room.

Re: 68 CB450 K1

In case anyone is wondering, Forking by Frank is unable to make new fork tubes for the K1. Apparently it is a plugged tube, and they don't make those.
And yes, the pictures work now!

Re: 68 CB450 K1

Is it just my computer, or have the pictures stopped showing up as thumbnails within the posts?

Re: 68 CB450 K1

IMG_1435.JPG IMG_1434.JPG IMG_1433.JPG I have had little chance to work on the bike this last month. A trip with my wife to Barbados took one of my weeks and a bit of my cash, but it was great. I've managed to get all of the bikes indoors. The front end came off, and things were a bit worse than ex...

Re: 68 CB450 K1

That is a random computer at work. I have no idea what Windows version it has, but our hospital has a poor reputation for keeping current on software.

Re: 68 CB450 K1

I'm uploading from an iphone to a macbook. I did a test of a pic taken in landscape mode instead of portrait mode, and I think it may work.

It worked. It apparently has something to do with auto-rotation coding on the images (or something like that, according to online geeks).
