1969 CL450K2
I've had it for almost 3 weeks now.
Started like this and I paid $300







Now it sits like this while I work on the rest of it.

*sigh* reminds me of my old cb250 k2 (link)



I miss that old bird, even though i let her down due to my lack of knowledge
(i.e. i ran her lean/had an airleak in a carb and burnt a hole in the left piston ).

I don't know how much it'll help anyone, but i've still got a scanned & coloured electrical schematic (link)

I've since gotten a gsx250 to try and rekindle my old-bike love, kinds got it going, but now im bastardising
the hell out of it & loving it.

Man, I love the "scrambler" look of these old CLs... I noticed a CL350, green, sitting out in front of a garage down the street from my house. Looks like it hasn't been registered for a while but it's all there, complete, just looking kinda sorry and neglected - tires are flat, license plate about to fall off, dusty, etc...

There's no "for sale" sign on it but I am really tempted to go knock on the door and ask if they would consider selling it. If the price is right and there is a title I would definitely take it. Would it be rude to just walk up, knock on the door and ask if it's for sale? Never tried this approach before so I'm not sure what to expect but I guess it wouldn't hurt to try.

i think thats a fine approach. if its a gated sort of situation with a big dog you might want to try just leaving a note like: "hey, I like these honda scramblers, are you interested in selling? call .." on the bike.

My 68'. The PO did a lot of work getting it right. I traded straight across for it with my KLX250. We both felt like we were getting a deal.

If I do any mods, (which of course I will ) I'll keep the stock parts. They're too good to chop & grind. I'm thinking desert sled style. Maybe bob the rear fender, smaller taillight, something custom using the stock seat pan, I'm working on a heat shield for the pipes right now. Think I'll stop about there.

I feel like I'm riding the granddaddy of my XR650R when I take this thing for a ride.

You are going to need real foot pegs. If you start to ride this off road.

You're pretty lucky to have that taillight on the bike it belongs on! Check out the smaller Bomber taillights and then look at the 71-> tail lights. While the earlier ones look super cool, they are hard to see and the one you have (and I also have on my 350) is a great balance of style and function. The 71-> ones, of course are hideous!

Hippy Tanks

Here's mine... or more accurately, was mine, since I sold it last year to a buddy who pestered me to sell it to him for 5+ years. He gave me first right to buy it back if/when he sells it.

NOS hippy tanks on an original low mileage K4 that I bought from a guy who had it in his living room. I added the K5 seat/grab rail and longer rear light stems. Only other changes were a slightly larger rear tire (the front is still the original), a NOS clutch cable, carb rebuild, and new tune-up parts.

This bike ran like a sewing machine - quick, peppy and fun with a great sound!!
