1975 Honda CB400 Cafe Racer

This is one of the more modified cafe racers to come up on eBay in a long time. Whether you love or hate the seat, the rest of the bike is built to the hilt. The seller claims the bike “runs super strong”, and from the spec list we have no reason to doubt him. Check out some of the modifications…

    Yoshimura Racing 466cc pistons and rings
    A.P.E. Racing block and ported heads
    Race camshaft
    Titanium valve spring retainers
    Keihin 26mm smooth bore
    Dyna ignition
    Triple clamps from 1979 CBX
    35mm CB550F forks, clear powder coated, 10 wt oil, new seals
    Works Suspension front dual spring kit (#230XH)
    Daytona aluminum front fork brace
    B900F Koni shocks NOS, #7610, 14″ (+1.5″ of std)
    Dual CB550F rotors and calipers, trailing mounted (as opposed to stock forward mounted)
    Baker Precision stainless steel brake lines
    CBR900RR master cylinder and adjustable level
    stretched aluminum tank custom made in England
    Pro Flo 35mm clip-ons
    CBR900RR footpegs and linkages

So what’s the good? Lots of cool modifications that should make this one of the fastest CB400’s around. And what’s the bad? That seat. Oh yeah. The bike ain’t cheap, either. With about a day and a half left in the auction, there are no bidders and the starting price is $3,900. However, there is no reserve, so if there’s one bid, the bike will sell.
