Old's Cool Once Again 1973 CB450

The newest (oldest) pony in the stable...
1973 Honda CB450 with 7,231 original miles

My father bought this in 1975 and I grew up riding it, felt like a dresser when you're 14 yrs old, feels like a moped now next to the 1200GS Adventure...

Cl 450 is cool too

I know how you feel. I had a CB450 when I was15. It was huge and fast as hell back then. I just bought a CL450 and it is small compared to my adventure and 650 X challenge. But it's still fun.

Looks like a very nice old CB450. I like those bikes, very classic styling, simple, they take you back to days gone by just looking at them.

I saw this motorcycle parked outside of a Half Moon Bay furniture store a couple of years ago, and I think I even may have talked to you (or your wife?) about it... Very Nice!
