The arrival of the Honda CB450 in 1965 should have dispelled any lingering doubts about Japan's intention to compete in all sectors of the motorcycle market. Honda's largest model when launched, the CB450 capitalised on experience gained with a succession of smaller-capacity twins but nevertheless departed from its maker's usual practice in a number of ways, in particular its use of twin overhead camshafts, torsion-bar valve springs and constant-velocity carburettors. The tubular frame - replacing Honda's traditional fabricated spine type - was another departure from the norm. In 1967 it was joined by a CL450 'street scrambler' variant aimed at the North American market, which boasted an upswept exhaust system, wider handlebars and spring-loaded footrests among other off-road adaptations. Apparently highly original and complete, this example of one of the rarest and most collectible of early Japanese classics currently displays a total of 19,588 miles on the odometer. The machine is offered with US Certificate of Title.
