Some have locknuts and some (like my Dunelts) do not and are set up as you describe.

Nonetheless, looks great.

Thank you Mirfi !

Actually this bike came with the handlebar/stem combo but there was a lot of crust and rust over most parts.
Here is what it looked like prior to disassembly.

Somebody made a fairly optimistic claim that it had a top speed of 104?
I dunno, I suppose maybe?

Ah, the dream bike of my high school years. Our high school's second string quarterback had one of those. So, of course, his sidekick went out and bought a Yamaha Big Bear 250 (YD-2, I think) which would blow the Honda into the weeds.

Top speed of 104? Maybe on a downhill run. I know that the CB450 wasn't capable of doing the ton, topped out at something like 97 or 98.

To the former, yes, at least as far as the speedo was concerned. To the latter, also yes.
