This custom-built 1973 Honda CB400F café racer is being sold at auction on Ebay—about two days left to the end of auction. The current owner and seller says that he built the bike himself and finished it last year. He took the Honda to several local events, including Motorcycles on Meridian during the 2011 Indianapolis MotoGP. He assures prospective owners that the bike is a real head turner and I can’t agree more—looks like immaculate work. Follow the auction here.
“The project began a few years ago after building a different bike for my wife. A few parts were left over which led me to where I am today,” says the owner. The bike was built on a frame of a 1973 CB350F, modified to accommodate a solo seat, relocated electrics, and a Benelli Mojave tank. The engine (408 cc engine with 4,500 miles on it) and the front fork are from a 1975 Honda CB400F. Engine has no leaks and has a rebuilt head, new seals, gaskets, and rings. Paintwork. The paintwork, by has “a coarse metal flake effect,” and the wheels, frame, and hubs were powder-coated by ProKote Inc.
