1976 Honda CB400F Super Sport

Before getting into the details of this bike, I just want to say something for the record. I am in no way advocating the tear-down of this motorcycle into a cafe racer or other modified form be it race bike, bobber, chopper, etc., etc., etc…

What we have here is an unrestored, but amazingly clean and beautiful CB400F Super Sport from the year 1976. It only has 6K miles, and the seller is supposedly a factory trained Honda mechanic who has adjusted all necessary doohickies (that’s a technical term for those of you not mechanically inclined) so the bike can be ridden immediately upon purchase. There are a few more pictures on eBay, and the seller has done a good job of describing the tune-up he gave the bike. His feedback is good, with a decent amount of selling over the last year, so if you decide to get in on the bidding or pay the Buy-It-Now price ($6.5K), it should be a pretty safe transaction. Bidding is pretty heavy with 12 bidders taking the price up to $1,925 with 3 days left. Awesome bike for whomever wins the auction!!!

Oh yeah. If you win this bike and then tear it apart to make a cafe racer, you will hear the cries and screams of thousands of classic bike fans who wish you would have started with a beater, and not this nearly off the showroom floor example…

Nice Fiberglass Tank and Seat

Up for auction on eBay right now is the nice combination of a seat and tank. Both appear to be in good shape, and bidding is going quite strongly (the price has more than doubled since last night to $127 with 5 days left). There are more pictures and a good list of specs in the listing itself…
