I have made up my mind on which bike needs to find a new home, and I hate to say it is the CB450 Project. I love this bike, is a blast to ride, but I can enjoy my CB750 more with the type of riding I do, so thus the CB450 is up for grabs..







A very quick list of things done to this bike are custom rearsets (offa GSXR 1000), Fiberglass cafe seat, factory sidecovers deleted with battery under seat, custom exhaust with copper end caps, clip on bars with slim master cylinder, oldschool schwon bicycle grips, smooth top triple tree, brane new Avon Roadrunner tires, lowered 4'' up front and 3'' out back, start & kill switch moved to headlite bucket, euro headlite lens with H4 bulb, kick & electric start, etc. I have TONS of hours of labor into this bike and I had a blast building it, but now it needs to find a new owner.


Asking $4,000 or best offer. Bike comes with a clean Illinois title..The entire build from start to finish can be seen at ---> http://www.sohc4.us/forums/index.php?topic=15615.0 . Shoot me an email at [email protected] if you wanna talk "turkey" , or need more information/questions answered...

Thanks ....

P.S--> Bike will be sold with pretty much ALL parts needed for a dual-disc conversion (as well as whatever else CB450 related I find in my garage)..

Some short clips of the bike in motion can be seen below ---->

You should really throw some supertrapps on the end of those open pipes and raise the bike back up so it can go through corners. Might sell better that way.

Thanks for the advice.
The bike isnt as loud as you would think, and corners just fine.
If it doesnt sell I will keep it and ride the tires offa it.
If it sells, then someone gets a kickass bike..

How well does it really need to corner in Chicago? I think that bike's more about lookin' cool parked out front of a pub.

I agree 150%. Both of my bikes I built more for looks than performance. I mean, if I want a bike that can handle like a dream I will go get a new Superbike or something. I still am surprised on just how well this bike does handle (for how low to the ground it is)..

U would have to contact a shipping/transportation company that handles motorcycles (just google motorcycle transport). I have sold a few bikes in the past where a 18 wheeler pulls up in front of my house, grabs the bike, and then drops it off at your place..
