Here is my CM450. It may not be a cool as the 4cyl CB's, but it just keeps fighting on, doing multi-day tours. I don't hesitate at all to take off on a 2500 mile trip with it. I am actually leaving in the morning to go head off for 5 days to Hell's Canyon.

I had one!!

I had a 1982 CM450C while I was in the Navy.Similar to your CM450E. I installed a MAC 2 into 1 exhaust and 2 inch rise superbike bars on it. I also had an EMGO 1/4 cafe fairing. I rode the day lights out of that bike! My wife(at the time) and I took a 3 day trip through the Outer Banks back in 1989. After the Navy I attended MMI in Orlando Florida and that was my only means of transportation. She never let me down once. Ya just can't beat the reliability of a Honda.

Thanks, pic was shot by a pro just moments before a thunderstorm hit.

I made the shield from some 3/16" steel round stock and some flat stock for the mounts. Some carefull bending, welding and much grinding resulted in a one of a kind piece and it works great for keeping my leg off the pipes.
