Adam and I did this trip early Sept 2010. This doesn’t account for any of the backroads we took. But it gives an overall idea of the locations we hit.
On our way back to Philly from Denver, we were coming across the top of Kansas and the skies started to look crazy. We stopped at a gas station and heard there was a tornado coming. An older gentleman approached us to talk about the cycles, and told us continuing into the storm was a […]
I’m a film hobbyist. On our trip I brought my Nikon N80 and shot 4 rolls of 35mm Fuji Velvia 50 slide film. Just finished scanning it and uploading it to flickr. Use the arrows within the lightbox to scroll through the gallery. Click on the Flickr icon to go to the Flickr page and […]
– trip is over – adam and I made it back to Philly in one piece – cycles are intact and still running solid – they def need a full tune-up and cleaning – we racked up somewhere between 4500-5000 total miles – neither of our mileage counters work… can only estimate – we had […]
Eating breakfast this morning in Marysville Ohio. We plan to make it into Pittsburgh today. Cycles are still running great. Avoided a tornado in Kansas because of a awesome couple that took us in and fed us. He used to race an H2 back in the day. Also raced BSA dirt trackers. Huge thanks to […]

So… after taking the engine apart it was apparent that we couldn’t diagnose the cylinder head properly. The cb450 in the 70’s has a really weird cylinder head design. Instead of having valve springs, it has what are called “torsion bars” which hit the valve to open it, and also, hit the valve to shut […]
