Cafe racer for sale

If you know your Hondas then you know how cool this bike is. This is a very sought after 1974 CB400F. It was bought new in 74 by the previous owner who then customized it as you see it here sometime in the late seventies/early eighties. The bike was last plated in 89' and the engine was then sent to a well known builder and racer in Edmonton. The motor was completely rebuilt with a Yoshimura big bore kit to 468cc. Track Cam installed and head porting done. It has been wrapped in a blanket and stored in a heated garage ever since. 0 miles on it. The bike came into my possession from the original owner 2 years ago and has been in heated storage ever since. These bikes were light and fast right out of the showroom and have been coined as Honda's "Little Ferrari" Heres the details on the bike.

74 honda CB400f

Yoshimura Race pipe, very RARE

custom dished tank to allow clearance for clubmans.
vintage Pirelli Phantom rubber, still runnable.

This bike is 95% complete, just needs to be re-assembled. Would make a great winter project that doesn't require too much work. Needs a new key cylinder ($25 on ebay), tank cleaned out, and maybe a coat of paint. Bike is located in Saskatoon. I will regret selling this motorcycle. email brianwjessop@gmail.com or call (306) 220-7982
