1970 Honda CL450 Cafe Racer (Part 2)

Back on March 24th, 2009, I posted what I believe to be this exact same bike (Click here…), and it had some issues that needed fixing. And now it appears they have been fixed. The current seller of this bike replaced the windscreen and gotten it running fine (according to the seller). Click through to the eBay listing via the photos for more pics of the bike currently, or click on the old posting for some outdoor shots of the bike. Reserve hasn’t been met yet, but bidding is only at about $1,500 with 15 hours left.

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!!!)…
