Henry’s Honda CL450

Henry Bell is another builder from Do The Ton who has taken the by the horns to build his own dream and this is his second machine, built from a 1970 CL450.

Here’s how she arrived…

And where the vision began…

My is Henry Bell, I live in Colorado U.S.A.  Been bikes for the past 3 years and learned more than I have ever imagined.  with a standard cafe on a 1976 CJ360, dropped her to below 300lbs, did the exhaust and and got her to hit the ton and then some.

  Then I decided it was time for speed, and some off-road Having heard wonders the Honda 450 platform, it was an easy

I picked up the 1970 Honda with 20,000 miles on it in the of winter.  Trucked it to my garage and to town.  Rebuilt the head, stock compression, swapped-in Mikuni VM32 carbs, up the exhaust and shaved countless off of her, and now she screams.

I’ve probably put about hours into the build and it me just over 9 months to get her proper.  Everything on the bike has customized or altered in some way to performance and enhance the riding

I installed a steering damper a GSXR, which provided stability at speeds, Hagon in the rear for better suspension, the front forks, custom leather seat, the whole 9 all in my garage.

The torsion bars of the 450 some getting used to, as certainly aren’t as transparent as springs, but the process of learning a new was priceless.

I called the bike because I, myself, am a ginger, and the embodies all that is me.  She is a … around town that is faster than (spent the weekend keeping up or the fellow riders at the DGRide, and all have new Triumphs).  When I get riding on the road, she is completely for dual-sport rides and handles in the dirt/sand as well.

  Passion compelled me to create that would maintain the style of a vintage Honda, but at the time provide the performance and handling for both on and off the road.  I to keep her in the stable for the kids to one day over.
