Honda CB450D - Desert Scrambler - 1967

Honda CB450D - Desert Scrambler - 1967
And this is my own bike, built 1967, which just received registration as historic motorcycle. During 1966/67 stocks of the CB450-K0 ("Black Bomber") were building up in US showrooms. To assist sales of the now fairly dull looking black only design Honda produced a special kit of parts for dealers to convert new bikes to this special "D"-model, the "D" stands for "Desert Scrambler". Consisting of tank, seat, mudguards, upswept exhausts and other parts to what later become a "CL"-scrambler style. This was the strongest 2-cylinder bike at that time with 444 ccm and 43 HP, DOHC, aircooled 4-stroke engine, 187 kg and 180 km/h. I imported the bike from Italy and only exchanged wear parts and the exhaust (which I bought in England), it has the original painting and chrome. About 30 exemplars exist worldwide. See 1st PiP for front view! The 2nd and 3rd PiP's show the same type in an English Honda museum.

I cannot believe, that this bike is already 53 years old (edit 2020) ;-)

Thanks Richard! But it's not a Black Bomber, similar, but actually the model CB450D, a further development from Black Bomber.

Magnifique, j'ai une cb450 k2 de 1969 et j'ai revendu il y a peu de temps une cl450 qui totalisait moins de 10 000Kms (import USA). La tienne est vraiment un modèle rare et à l'état neuf.

Fabulous looking old bike Berny … you're a lucky guy for sure. I'd have given the front view a star too, but for some reason ipernity won't let me! ;)

Wunderschöner klassischer Scrambler - in USA gerne gekauft, in Deutschland und Österreich eine Rarität. Und Ersatzteile kosten ganz schön viel Kohle....

Hast Du gut gemacht, Berny!!
