With a bit of wrenching and a little cleaning, wouldn't this be a great classic for running around town? We sure thought so, and that's why it's this weeks' eBay bike. This 1968 Honda CL450 Scrambler appears to have stood the test of time, and though it's not currently running, that may keep away just enough buyers to make this a steal. 

With around twelve thousand original miles, this is the perfect candidate for a light restoration if you're in the mood. That said, you could also just rebuild the carbs, add a new battery, and chances are with a little tuning,  you'd probably have it running. After that, it's just a question of how pretty you'd like to make it. And since all of the hard-to-find parts are still on this bike, it's definatley worth the extra dough you'd pay over buying a lesser bike and chasing down pieces. So why not add a little Scrambler to your stable? You can't tell us this doesn't look like good fun!
