Yup.  If your bike has already been plated in Alberta you won't have an issue BUT if you need to get an inspection to get your registration they'll hold you to all the regulations.  That is; UNLESS you know somebody.

Well assuming I get the tires on this weekend. It's pretty much 'put it back together time' curious to see how it looks myself.

I also have another parcel slip. It's either mirrors or helmet.

Just ordered a jet kit, new gas cap seal, petcock and throttle tube. That should handle the little bits. everything else I should be able to get locally easy enough.

Changed the tires today (video to come) got a bunch more painting done and swapped my new pegs on. I'll get the wheels painted throughout the week then re assemble the bike next weekend if all goes well.




Old tire sidewall hahaha.

The Internet lies!!!!!!

Everything I read said a cb450 wheel should be a bolt in affair in the rear. Well that's not true. The cb uses a larger diameter axle, and a narrower swing arm. The overall axle length is the same. I can make the swing arm holes bigger easy enough but I'm going to need some longer spacers. Uhg. What a pain :(
