Racer X Films: 2008 CRF450 Project

April 26, 2017 4:50pm | by:

The 2008 CRF was, at the time, the absolute gold standard of four stroke 450s. In fact, up until the release of the 2017 there were some who argued it was the best 450 Honda had ever built. David Schmidt, of Schmidt Performance, found one that had a crank through the case and not much more than a frame. The intention with these older bike rebuilds is to show the price of all the parts and labor. On our Garage Project builds money is no object; it's all about making the bike as cool as possible. This is a bit different—and cheaper. Check it out and let us know what you think.
