The waterpump is a dead giveaway for me. The two have completely different looking waterpumps. Also the 250F has more space between the valve cover and the frame.

The ignition covers on the 250F have not changed since the first one. They are quite different than either 450 is. The clutch covers are also smaller on the 250F, as is the spacing between the head bolts on the right side. In the later models with the aluminum frames, the 450 sits nearly upright, while the 250 slopes slightly forward. The 450 also lacks the external oil tank and the cast in boss on the right side of the head for the decomp shaft, which is still there on the 250F.
