I did extensive research to find the history on these motorcycles. This one, as far as I know, is the only restored Red Dragon Honda 450 in the United States! I purchased this bike about 8 years ago. When I went to work on it, I noticed there was red paint underneath the black paint. I sanded down every spot on the bike down to the original red paint. (I have many photographs and videos) I even found original red paint underneath the bottom steering race when I removed the races and bearings. I initially thought that the CB450 may have come in all 4 colors that Honda provided in the 1960s: Black, red, white, and blue...But that was not the case. I found that the US market had only black bombers, the European market had a mix of black and red, white was only for the police CB450 models, and blue was never produced by the HONDA factory. I have a factory Honda parts manual for police and black bomber CB450's and they only came in 3 colors: white, black, and scarlet red. once I establish that honda actually made red ones I disassemble the entire motorcycle for restoration. All parts removed from this bike were either repainted, re-chromed, polished replaced with OEM parts or refurbished. This was a long restoration project. I never intended to have this bike for sale, it was for my personal collection.
