You are looking and maybe bidding on a 1971 Honda CL 450 Scrambler, FD 6/71 with original 3340 miles( titled withoriginal Michigan title as a 1972 model most likely since it sat in the showroom over the winter from 71 to 72 and then was sold and titled in 5/08/1972 )

I purchased this bike about 2 1/2 years ago from the original owner, Inever put the bike in my name and only test drove it after the restoration was completed ) the bike was taken completely apart to every last piece, xcept the engine that at that time was never opened or touched.

The frame was media blasted, tch primed and pro. painted with a DuPont 2K urethane, ame with all other frame parts like swing arm, ngine mounts, riple tree, nbsp;toolbox etc. wheels were taken apart inspected and the hubs/platesre-polished, oth front/rear brake shoes show almost no wear. the fork was disassembled and re-polished and had new seal, il and new fact. gators installed. The steering head received new Timkin bearings. The original strato blue paint was perfect on the head light ears as well as on the side covers and really did not needrepainting, owever the side covers were used to computer eye match the base coat and we decided to re base/clear the rest of the body parts, he tank received 3.5 coats of clear ( 2K DuPont brand in a professional paint shop)

The engine was exceptionally clean and hardly needed any attention ( see pictures)side covers, alve covers and camshaft coverswere carefully removed and also re polished reinstalled using new gaskets and the originalHonda boltsto keep the bike as originally as possible. Even the original chain ( with no master link)as the bike was equipped when it came from the factory was washed oil bathed and reinstalled, ou can see that there is no visual wear on the sprockets. Carbs were cleaned/ rebuild. Air filters, ntake and air filter rubbersare in perfect shape with no cracks or dry rot, r dirt . Timing, alves were checked and adjusted to specs ( I do own over 10 450 Hondas and know and worked on these bikes for more then 44 years, t was a 450Honda that becamemy first big bike back then, nd I still love them and their potential as Todd Henning proved......)

The bike was reassembled, nly about a dozen new rubber grommets, uts and washers ( SS) were installed in this process, S you can see in the pictures the bike is stunning with nice chrome no rust on spokes nor on the exhaust ( except one small area on the right exhaust manifold where the out side bend is coming out of the engine) The tires appear to be original, lenty of tread leftwith no dry rot/cracks at all. The seat was pro. reupholstered as the pictures show.

All electrics/ lights/horn/blinker etc. work as new, he engine has super good compression runs real strong with plenty of power and shifts fine through all gears anddoes not smoke/leak at all.

The bike has to be picked up by the buyer, owever in the past I shipped bikes ( 3 ) to Australia and other countries, will assist in loading and/or even crate for a small fee to save everybody some money.

The reserve is set relatively low for a bike in this kind of condition with a reasonable buy it now price.

You can see/hear the bike run on YouTube at sailnau
