CB400F photos
« on: May 13, 2016, 10:49:54 AM »
It's been requested I share a photo or two of the ol' parakeet yellow SS.  I wandered into the garage and managed to find it, hasn't been run in over a year at this point.  Slowly trying to find the money and parts to at least ride it again...  At least it holds a shop manual well.

'86 R65 with '84 motor ~70000 miles. SS lines, Spiegler rotor, Progressive monoshock, Keihan silencers, a piece of Pichler fairing.
'76 CB400F ~26000 miles. Weepy SS lines, big dent in the tank.

Nice!    I remember when that bike came out too - loved the 4-1 exhaust.   A guy I knew in high school had one, and he ended up dating the girl of my dreams.  As far as I know it didn't work out, but I coveted that bike nearly as much as the girl.

Matt

I feel your pain.

But, contrary t what i said in my PM to you, I've now had a look and an extraordinary array of parts are still available. In fact I am amazed at what is still around.


I do hope you are able to get the old girl going again.

I owned one of those in 1975 and it now resides in a shed near where i used to live. i have thought of trying to get it back.
