1976 Honda CB400F Super Sport

There have been bikes I have posted before where I have implored everyone who might possibly buy the bike not to modify the bike. This is another one of those motorcycles. I don’t know if the 298.7 miles that the odometer shows are the true miles, but it is either true or the restoration job is masterful. Check out the pictures as there isn’t much to say about this bike given its stock condition.

There are about 17 hours left in the auction, and the price is approaching $5K with 22 bidders. This is a nice bike that could very easily end up in someone’s never-ridden collection, but I hope I see it up at Alice’s Restaurant or the Rock Store some time…

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…
