what up guys i have an '82 cb450 that i want to crack into and build a little bar hopper. i had struts on the back before but now i want to hardtail it. just wanted to know if anyone could throw some pointers my ways. i have had this bike forever and i finally moved back to the east coast and got a garage so i have the time and place to work on it. thanks in advance for the help

If you dont want to do it yourself. Go see Preacher at RIGHTEOUS CYCLES in Norfolk he can do it for you.

Rite On..Good luck with the build we need some more home built death traps running around our area.

Im actually about to get started on a TC bros universal hardtail section for my
86 CMX450 which probably isnt too much different from your bike..
Stay tuned.. hopefully you can learn from my mistakes!
