Found on eBay: 1966 Honda CB450
By Landon Hall
Around here, we’re suckers for old Hondas, and the CB450 “Black Bomber” is one of those great “early” Hondas that we’d just love to have sitting in the garage, waiting for a ride now and then.
This 1966 CB450 Black Bomber is original save for the seat, tires, and battery, and looks to have been lovingly cared for all its’ life. With just under 7,000 original miles, the owner claims that the bike runs and rides great, and “looks to be about 5 years old.” Not bad for being more than 40 years old! The current owner bought the bike at the Daytona Antique and Classic Motorcycle Auction in 2005 for his father, who kept the bike in his garage and would hardly ride it because it was “too nice.”

The Way We Weren’t in ’73
Rediscovered photos evoke stories from a 1973 tour of California aboard a Kawasaki Z-1. No GPS, fancy tank bags or waterproof riding gear.
Found on eBay: 1973 Norton Commando 850 Interstate
Norton Commandos are some the most loved and coveted of the Seventies bikes, and their prices have been climbing steadily for years. Rarely do we see a Commado worth having for less than $5,000, and often the ones for sale at that price still look like they need a good bit of sorting.
Found on eBay: 1958 Velocette Venom
This week’s eBay browsing led us in many different directions, but mostly towards the dirt. We’ve had the itch for a good Seventies enduro for running trails and the dirt and gravel roads “round these parts” for awhile, and though maybe we’ll find one of those next week, our searching came to a halt as soon as we saw this great old Velo.
