The 450 (actually 436cc) was added to the Scrambler line in 1969 and proved to be a very popular model, remaining in production until 1974. There were various different tail & head lights, side covers and instruments used over the years and in different markets. This restored example has been ridden in the Italian Moto Giro in 2010 plus four Australian Giros. It has non standard Ikon rear shocks and the steering damper knob from an earlier model scrambler. 27hp at 6,500rpm. Dry weight 133kg. Photographed in the Hunter Valley, NSW. 2014.
