For sale is a really cool old Honda CB450 Black Bomber. I believe it is a 1965, ut please do your own research to verify the year based off of the vin (Frame: CB450-1007525 Engine: CB450E-1005746. These numbers are considered "Matching" for a Honda of the 60's). I have owned it for about ten years, nd it has been a joy, ven though I rode it very little. It appears to be mostly original, ith some repaint done at some stage of it's life (most likely the silver and tank, est of chassis appears original to me). This bike looks really nice, ut is not a show bike....I'd consider it a great rider. It would take very little to make this bike show worthy, ut in it's current state there are nicks, cratches, ome pitting in the chrome, couple rust spots, nd other wear you would expect from a bike that is 50 years old. I have replaced the seat cover and plastic emblems while owning the bike. The bike was last registered in 2011, hen I "non-oped" it. There are no back fees to be paid, nd the California title is in my name. Since 2011 the bike has sat around. I just replaced the battery and cleaned the carbs out and it fired up and runs cleanly. It could use a tune up, nd the idle needs to be adjusted (it is high, ou'll see in the video below). The only problem I could find on the bike is the fact that the starter motor spins, ut isn't engaging the motor. I tried a few times, nd every once in a while it would catch. There's a spring in there that engages the starter clutch I believe, houldn't be a hard thing to fix. This is an old motorcycle, o please be aware that it will need fiddling now and in the future to keep it up and running....if you have ever owned a vintage car or motorcycle, ou know what i mean!
Please ask questions if you have them!

I forgot to mention that the bike has Uni air filters in place of the original (and horrible) paper elements ones. Just a reminder, his is an old bike and not "restored." A nice rider, ut not a show bike. Thank you all for the bids!
