Rather than focus on restoring my Honda CB450, I take a detour to pick up a ’72 Honda CB350F. Then we go on a tour of the vintage Honda motorcycle exhibit at the Reynolds Alberta Museum.
The gas tank of my Honda CB450 was rusty and full of sludge from rotten gas. After an acetone wash and a soak in vinegar, the rust is almost completely gone! Next up, I’ll get rid of any remaining rust and seal up the tank with a KREEM tank liner kit from Old Bike Barn.
I’ve just released my second T-shirt design! This one is based on my ’72 Honda CB450, which I’m currently restoring!
All the proceeds for this shirt are going to Children’s Wish Foundation, which helped out a very good friend when her sister was sick.
If you’d like to purchase the shirt, please go to my webstore!
The previous owner of my ’72 Honda CB450 K5 said the carburetors were leaking and were in need of some work. So I yanked them off, gave them a good cleaning and rebuilt them with a kit from Dime City Cycles. Next up is cleaning the fuel tank!
