Honda CB400N 1982

Classic Restoration or Great Cafe Racer project.

V5 in my name.

2x Keys

Motad 2 into 1 exhaust.

Have had it running. runs well. started first attempt after long lay up.

All bodywork present and lugs appear to be intact.

Has done 40000 mile according to speedo. this is unverified though.

Will need some work but all of it is pretty straight forward. easy winter project.

Will need carbs stripping and re-building I suspect. as it seems to be running rich. not much choke required.  

Needs a solenoid. had to bypass it to start.

Downpipes have been painted but appear to be solid with no holes.

Will need 2 tyres and a battery.

Clutch is sticking. though may free off with a quick ride.

One exhaust stud has snapped off so blowing at head. should be easy fix with a Hel-Coil.

Front brakes are binding a bit. can still be rolled. but will need a bit of attention.

Tank is rusty on top and has a few small dents. however. inside looks clean and should be easy to repair.

Seat will need recovering.

Probably flattered by photos but I don't want it to sound too bad. its pretty much all there and wouldn't take that much to put it on the road as it is or rebuild into a nice Cafe Racer or excellent restoration project.

Viewing highly recommended. call me on 07742436542 or email bozbeng@lineone. net to arrange/ask questions.

Will need collecting with van/trailer. as no MOT or TAX.  

Delivery possible at £1 per mile + tolls (one way). payable beforehand.

I will also need 15% deposit before delivery. please; this and delivery charge will be non-returnable.

Unfortunately there are too many people out there who are prepared to mess you around. apologies to the majority of good. honest Ebayers out there.

I have tried to be as honest and as accurate as possible. feel free to ask any questions or point out any errors.

Buyer please contact me within 3 days of auction end to arrange collection/payment.

I will not release the bike without cleared payment.

Please do not pay by PayPal. Cash on collection only.
