Restored by Bighouse Choppers (which from what I can tell, started inside a Nevada State Prison), this Honda CL450 has bodywork in both Magna Red or Planet Blue, so you can mix it up and pretend like you have two bikes.

The dual-sport cousin of the Black Bomber, Honda’s CL450 was the best selling of the scramblers of the day. Because of this, you can find one with relative ease even though they haven’t been made in 40+ years. Basic specs included 45 horsepower from the same 444cc parallel twin found in the CB450. Dry weight was 401 pounds and with enough time you could hit 105 miles per hour. For more on the CL450, check out this story on Hemmings.

This CL450 is said to be “a beautifully restored Scrambler that is truly better than new.” Find it for sale
here on Craigslist.
