1970 Honda CL450 Cafe Racer


Up for auction on eBay right now is this period correct Honda CL450 that seriously brings the funk! I love bikes with the Tracy bodywork, and have featured them before, but this one is really beautiful, and is not your standard CB750. The smallish Honda twins are a lot of fun, and provide great bang for the buck. The biggest issue with this bike is that the tank will need to be patched (it’s fiberglass), but that shouldn’t be a deal breaker. And the seller has already ordered a replacement windscreen for the one destroyed by bird strike (must have been a very small bird!!!)…
