Re: 68 CB450 K1

Now I just need to get the garage reorganized so I can get it inside and get the motor out. With 66,000 miles on it, I expect a rebuild. There was a lot of black oil residue inside the left header pipe when I removed it.

Re: 68 CB450 K1

I found a proper headlight shell, repaired some cracks in it, and got it and the NOS fork ears painted today. The old fork ears were pretty jacked up by some unorthodox modifications. I still can't figure out why all of my pictures load sideways.

Re: 68 CB450 K1

That exhaust is a bodged together mess. I think that it started its life as half of a 4 into 2 system. It prevents use of the rear brake, and the rear mount doesn't line up with anything. There is also a hole rusted through the underside. At least it still had the original exhaust flanges and spacers.

68 CB450 K1

I really did not need another motorcycle in the garage. However, I found this on Craigslist a few weeks ago, and I really like the K1. I have a few K0s in the works, and have a few K1 parts that have come along in the last few years. My K0 actually has a K1 exhaust on it, and I was about to replace ...

Re: CA77 petcock

I have one of these, but I haven't installed it yet. The quality seems to be pretty good, though.

Hello from Kentucky

I've just migrated over from the DOHC 450 site. I've been playing around with Honda 305 and 450s for a while, and have just about completed a 76 KZ900. The next project is an almost-running 82 XL250R for my son to ride offroad. I'm looking at starting a build thread or two in the near future.
