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.
