In part 9 of our Long Haul project we perform some basic maintenance on our 1974 Honda CB450 K7. After 5000 miles of road trip riding, it is time to adjust, clean and replace a few wear items on the bike.

Mufflers were re-sealed as well as topping fluids off and a bit of air in the tires.
The bike is ready to ride again for another adventure. We hope that the Long Haul series has inspired you to build and ride your own bike to go the distance. These machines were built to ride so go out there and have your own long haul road trip!
