Dave, both wheels are from a 1968 CB 450 Honda, which are forty spoke. The rear wheel made it easier to facilitate a RH rear brake with the LH shift T140V engine.

The wheels are Morris brand. I'm pretty sure they were swapped out for the original spoked chrome wheels sometime in the past 40 years. I really have no info about the bike's history. I bought from a really nice shop and the shop owner said he had bought it with a few other bikes from one guy. I've seen the Morris wheel on later models such as the TSS , TSX and the Royal Wedding bikes.

How do you like the new clutch?
Where did you get the side panels to convert it?
Does it require you to remove the stock air box?

Hi conrodt,The 7 plate conversion clutch is a revelation,Light lever action and never slips now.I just fitted one to me mates 78 T140e and he says the same.The side panels are repro fibreglass ones from e-bay £50,and yes i did remove the stock airbox etc to fit them.
