    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.:D

    Very nice picture. Like the sky. Tell me about your pipe shield... What material did you use to fab that up?

    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. :D

    My XLV750R. AKA "Chuffa" because of the noises it made first time I persuaded it to run.

    Bought this one as a parts bike for another XLV that had come out of a garden in Pollockshields. This one was a barn find in Oxfordshire & fired up when given fresh petrol & a battery so t'other one became the parts bike.

    Really must find time to sort it out & get it back on the road but my Laverda seems to be absorbing all my spare time and cash.

    I bought this bike around 1985 and rode it every year. I sold it a few months ago. What a great bike!

    2-up tourer

    Which model is that sidecar? Did you have to mod the sidecar to mount it, or was it pretty straightforward to install?
