              Tim's (kghost) 400F looks a lot better than mine does. ::)
       Mine is a 76' and had the Comstar wheels when I got it. I will probably fix it up with some modifications. Not a restoration though. I kinda like the look of the Comstars.

      Location is in Western Arkansas

             





       Okay now, let's see ALL the other 400Fs out there. :) Come on, let's get em' posted in here.  ;)

Ok here's my little 400 collection....I love these little Honda's.

Location: Sunny South Africa.

Yoshimura full blown racer. built mostly from parts. Plus lots of yoshi goodies that I bought in the 70's. see pic in avatar. lots of other pics and a build story on my web site.

No 2 is what I call my JPS special. Just rolled it out on Sunday to look at it in sun for the first time in a few years. this one I bought new in 1975 in the Uk. nearly completed a full rebuild, Yoshi 466cc, ported head, webcam. fully balanced etc. just a few things on the to do list..repair silencer, restore master cyl and calliper, mirrors and finalise the carbon rear fender. the one in the pic is a proto. Oh and a new front Avon AM26 90/90/18, this I'll have to import from the states.

No 3 is a 1975 general export model that I am busy doing a full back to original restoration including the motor. Waiting for the next batch of parts to come in from David silver, should be this week.

Oh there's a No 4 in the works. this is going to be a full house street cafe racer. TZ250 USD forks, NSR250 alloy swing arm spoked wheels. a bare bones street racer with a full bore motor.

A few pics.
CB400F- 492 Yoshi Racer.
Cb400F- 466 Yoshi Cafe.
CR750 D Mann Replica.
VFR750R- RC30 - 1988.

Hey Javier,

Nice looking ride, I forget the size I have had them for awhile. I do remember they are just the cheap emgo ones. They are a bit tough to fit into the limited space. Sorry I forget the size

How do the 400s compare dimensions wise to the 500/550? are they around the same over all length, height and weight?

i think i've sat on at least one of each model and i'm always surprised at how much bigger the next step up is (except 350 to 400 and 500 to 550)... i don't think i'll ever own a 750 for that reason... not really too much bike... just too much boat!   ;D  its like walking around w/ a load in your pants.   ;D :P ;D  take that 750 heads!   ;D
