the cb450 seat
…was super tall from Honda. I could barely touch the ground flat-foot on it!!!
So, I found a seat on eBay that was real slick looking that was said to fit the 1970-1974 cb450. This is the dude’s eBay store:
He def has some real sick seats for a lot of different bikes. Anyway, to make a long story short, I ordered the seat for the 450, and then he emailed me a few days later and said that he was mistaken in his eBay post, and the seat won’t fit 73-74.
So, I cancelled my order, printed out pictures of what the seat looked like, and brought my stock seat to the same upholstery shop that did my cb650 seat. They charged me $175 which is $75 less than the eBay dude. This is their shop:
They’re located in N.E. philly.
I think the seat turned out great. I wanted it to look like it could’ve came from Honda this way, because the 450 is all stock other than clubmans, so I didn’t want a seat that looked out of place, but I wanted to sit a few inches lower.
