Honda's reputation for producing trouble-free medium-weight twins was firmly established in the Sixties; quite literally the mid-range models they produced for a decade or more provided highly satisfactory transport for thousands of riders over millions of miles! Conservatively styled, and ultra reliable, the family of CB 250/360/450s carved an affectionate niche in every market around the globe in which they were sold. Equipped with a front disc brake, electric starter, and with high quality bright-work the specifications could not be faulted.

The CB 450 was purchased by the owner of the Ariel, (Lot 288) in October 2010, for use as a runabout. Finished in olive green metallic paintwork the machine appears not to have suffered any mechanical abuse during its previous ownerships, about which nothing is known. Believed to have been imported at some point from the USA the late owner used this cleanly presented Honda for short journeys and shopping trips etc, for barely a year. The indicated mileage shows 11,321 miles. The machine is currently registered, and MOT'd until September 2013.
