    CB450 Pistons

    So apparently we've used up all of our old pistons to make trophies and now that we need some originals to CAD we don't have them!!! We're looking for a used set of stock bore CB450 pistons, ('65-'72). Condition doesn't matter. If you have some old ones laying around please email me...

    CB 450 project done... need jetting/gearing tips

    I'm running 155's one one of mine, never had a need to go 160 even with the baffles removed and V-stacks. Are you sure it's jetting? Make sure the timing is dead-on, and the carbs are perfectly synced, if one carb is just a little off, at 6k rpm she will bitch a little. Herm

    I second Oldog's CB750! I love that that bike. It was the source of my inspiration for this build; Thanks for nominating our Brass Cafe boyz!! We humbly accept.

    Thnx Brutha! The cable cable section will be up soon. What we've tried to do is to have OE length and then shorter and longer versions for whatever setup you have. Custom cables will be an option for sure! We'll also have DYI cable kits up there in case you wan to give that a go! Hoping to have...

    DTT meet @ Barber Vintage Festival 2010

    Me and Jason are definitely planning on attending, and camping is the only way to do it! Count us in. We'll have to see about the booth though..that would mean work.

    Thanks for the support all! The feedback has been awesome. It means a lot to know we have the backing from the folks that helped inspire this thing! As Jason eluded to in the initial post, there's still a ton to be done though! Especially in the product area as we continue to look for unique...

    CB450 engine cost?

    That's exactly about right. I've now gotten my hands on 4 different CB450's, all complete bikes, each for under $200.00, two running and two seized...but since the bike is more than 35 years old, for me it’s irrelevant if they run or not. If you plan on having a good running engine, you should...

    Dime City CB450 Takes 1st Place - Full Throttle Magazine Biker Build-off

    Other shots here of the shock setup: The bike’s pretty much been sitting at the shop since first being done in August because of a transmission issue. But we finally found a donor engine a few weeks back, opened both up and swapped out the shifting...

    cb450 rearsets done on the cheap!

    Anything that'll cut a straight line in quarter inch aluminum will do the job. At the time I used a handheld jigsaw, but a table mounted scroll saw or bandsaw would probably serve a lot better. either way, it's really a breeze...

    CB450 II - DONE!

    Thanks Chris! Really appreciate it! No twitching at all! It’s like the bike is on rails in the turns! The short shocks are very stiff to begin with and I guess the angle their in really enhances what they’re meant to do. I never felt so confident going into a turn as I do on this bike! I...
