Everyone knows the K0 version, affectionately known as the Black Bomber, but the K1 was sold alongside the K0 in ’68. Most K1s got a seat with white piping and textured black vinyl. For reasons unknown, Honda marketed the K1 as the Hellcat in Canada – I wish the US got the sweet name, too.

This example (VIN: CB450-3006357) has about 8,000 miles and it looks good thanks to a repaint and rechrome. Note that the exhaust pipe still has a couple of dents but the bike is in good shape otherwise.
