    Honda CB450 parts

    Looking for a decent set of headlight ears, as long as they aren't dented, I'm interested. Also really want a gas tank if it won't break the bank. I also realized that my right side foot peg is pretty bent, so if you've got those along with a side stand that would be really helpful. Maybe a rear...

    How difficult is it to reuse pin connectors?

    I popped them out without much of a problem, ordered a kit that had the replacement pins and the right crimping tool (I don't have many electrical tools). Now, the hardest part is that I just have to wait for it to show up.

    How difficult is it to reuse pin connectors?

    I am replacing all of the wire in my harness and installing a motogadget m-unit. I’d like to keep the ability to disconnect components and ideally would just use the factory pin connectors. Any guidance on doing this?

    CB 450 twin. I said I needed a project

    I think the end may be near! I was waiting on the next steps for the bike because I really wanted a motogadget m-unit blue for this thing. I knew that meant that I'd be sinking a lot more cash in and wasn't ready to do it, so the bike sat for a while (also a few other pressing house projects...

    CB 450 twin. I said I needed a project

    Went ahead and got a frame loop from Dime City. I opted for the extra Bend to try to keep the rear tire clearance where it should be. Was thinking I was going to braze it, but then decided to ask a buddy if he’d be able to come over and TIG it. Fortunately for me he said sure! Now I can figure...

    CB 450 twin. I said I needed a project

    Well, I found some leaks :( I think I am going to try to close them up using silver. If everything is clean, it should work great. So in other news I am attempting to rebuild the front caliper, but the piston is not moving AT ALL. The reservoir is full, but I can't see any movement when I pump...

    CB 450 twin. I said I needed a project

    I had a gap to make up in the bottom that wasn’t going to be able to fill with just brass, so I spliced in a little material. Turned out fine. Testing for leaks tomorrow.

    CB 450 twin. I said I needed a project

    I started brazing my tank back together last night. I haven't picked up the torch in a couple of years, but I feel pretty good with how things turned out. I tacked the tunnel to the tank and then attached the sides. I need to make a piece to cover up a 1/4 inch gap in the bottom of the tank, and...

    Is Dynatek DS1-3 right for CB450?

    Hey there, I am a level one newbie to electronics. I am rebuilding my 74 cb450 and wanted to get rid of the points. I had my motor built by a guy that sold me this Dynatek DS1-3 thing and on the install sheet it says it's for Honda GL1000's. I looked on their site, but there is no listed support...

    CB 450 twin. I said I needed a project

    The motor didn't have any copper gaskets in it when I picked it up, Not sure why they are in that pic above (he sent that to me) Yeah, he said he found the cover and is getting it vapor blasted, so I should be able to get it back soon. Hopefully.

    CB 450 twin. I said I needed a project

    Yeah the motor got at least one new valve guide. not much else other than a full rebuild and cleaning and a new timing chain. As far as pricing goes, what would you expect to pay for a job like this? I'll say it was more than I expected, but I also had to wait almost a year for it. Now that the...

    CB 450 twin. I said I needed a project

    After another month and a few more nags I finally got most of my motor back!! It's missing the chain cover (I dropped it off with the engine, but it's gone missing :'( ) but everything looks pretty good. There was no need to add bore size, so it remains stock displacement.

    I need one spoke. Can you help a brother out?

    Hey there. So I have been slowly (ok, really slowly) working on my CB 450 and in between have move into a new house. I had my wheels apart and now I can't find one spoke. It's a front disc brake wheel and the spoke is the short bend, inner spoke that I'm after. I'm getting 8 3/16" overall...

    CB 450 twin. I said I needed a project

    And the epic tale of one man's motorcycle continues... When I left off I was riding high, I'd found help and had dropped off my motor at the guy's place that was recommended. His shop looked great, out in the edges of Austin. He had a lot of motorcycles out there that looked like customer bikes...

    Anyone try cheap alloy rims?

    Those look like another good option, but unfortunately I have Honda 40h front and rear and want to keep my hubs.
