Sporting original paint and more than a few well-aged parts showing the patina of their years, this bike rejects the fastidious nit picking of a Concourse restoration. Instead, Robb and Ryan have dubbed this style a “Rolling Patina Restoration.” The rear turn signals were tucked in, but not the fronts. A custom Vinyl-Lux seat shaved inches off the stock Honda loaf. This really cleans up the lines of the CB450. Plenty of parts have scuffed edges and scratched chrome we purposefully didn’t take the bike down to the frame and powdercoat it shiny. We didn’t pull every aluminum part and polish it to a mirror. This isn’t that kind of bike. It’s a runner, a rider and the kind of bike only the trained eye will fully appreciate. The anal retention was spent inside the engine and the front forks — in carefully mixing and matching just the right parts to make this bike all that it should be. Adeline. It’s a play on words for all of Robb’s little adjustments. This bike was, in a hundred little ways, “outa line” and from that, she’s called Adeline.
