  Thanks for the offers of parts, I think I'll order from Yamiya, due to lazyness. I'm leaning towards a black headlight with a parking lamp and the new right control that has off/park/on. That's as trick as it needs to be.

 The chrome bucket with the Marschall headlight is tempting though.

I don't think a chrome bucket on a 400F would look good, Don...Larry

 I got a black one from DSS. I did notice Yamiya has the Marshcal with a black one included also.

 Has anyone seen a 400F with a Honda emblem under the headlight? Yamiya sells one and I was wondering if it's just an accessory or if Japanese domestic or European bikes came with them? I snagged a cheap one for a 650 that looks like the one listed and if I remove a cable clip it should bolt on easily.
 I'll try one on for size, the area under the headlight looks busy, maybe the emblem would clean the appearance up  a little. Or it might look more busy we'll see.

  I reread this thread, the little bikes seem to come and go a lot. For me it's the thread of sellers remorse but I really know I can't keep them all. I should have kept that yellow 77 though. I intend to sell this one too, we'll see.

 It must be an accessory then. Thanks. In Japan they seem to like a lot of bolt on accessories, maybe that's why Yamiya lists it.

Close to finished here with the tank and side covers back from paint and just a few more items such as the gas cap and petcock installation. I need to get it out of the basement and into the garage in the next week and get the bike started and a set up of the carbs and timing.
This was a full rebuild of the entire bike including the motor and every component and part replaced or refreshed along with a few hundred hours of labour in the restoration. It will be sold in the spring, as I have other bikes that I prefer to ride and enjoy.

How much will you sell it for? Looks amazing. I hope to done day do a very nice restoration of my bike as well.

 Mine is rewired and running. My phone isn't uploading to google photos for some reason. Film when I can.

Well, I just said the heck with it and put the petcock in the tank, installed it back on the bike, put some gas in it.

Fired her up for the first time in a few years, with the new pipes, and she seems to run ok.

I wanted to paint the tank and side covers before putting everything back together.

 I have a 77 yellow tank with sidecovers too Larry. She might have a split personality.
