Junkyard Buy 71 cl450 "Light Cycle"
« on: Mar 22, 2011, 16:35:08 »
Hey everyone, here she is, my first build! A $300 junkyard find, 1971 honda cl450k4. Had the bike since september of 2010, worked on her til i ran out of money, then got my tax return and have started the project up again! Sorry about the poor picture quality, it was taken with a cell phone and then the file was converted so that i could upload it. More pics to come !!

jrknecht, I am going to do what i can with this tank first, I got a tip from a mechanic friend on how to get the rust out of the tank. But i am not so sure what a body shop can do with that dent :s

Something like this should work just fine on the dent:

You may need a little welding and such when you're done though.

Once again, THANK YOU ! I wasn't sure that kink was fixable... the source of the dent can be found in this picture

the little nipple for stopping the handle bars is broken, a little bit of heating bending and welding should cure it! I just wonder how it happened

Reviving my ancient thread.

After completely disassembling, stripping paint and collecting parts, I am pleased to say that my bike is coming along nicely. While a complete tear down and build is time consuming and costly, this old junkyard bike is coming to life.

Updates will be following.
