1968 HONDA CB450K1

1968 Honda CB450K1          
                                                    SOLD- California

Redesigned, refinished, and completely gone through, this super slick bike will make one lucky owner a very happy person. Unlike some of those other cafe racers that look like modern bikes with classic lines, this beauty looks like a real classic with modern touches that has been very well cared for. With brand new rubber, race shifting pattern, and weighing in at only 357 lbs wet, you will be doing the ‘ton’ in no time flat. Not only that, but with upgraded suspension,  tires, and brakes you’ll finally be able to carve those corners and slow down too! Featured on and Third Place winner at Motorado Vintage Bike Show.
