Just found this thread! After all the cafe bashing going on, this is a welcome relief! :)

I bought this bike in '79: Seeley frame/tank/seat, with Morris wheels, dual front discs, Gremeca rear disc, K1 motor with 836 and unknown cam, Gerex electronic ignition and Weber carbs. All the best parts back in the day. The PO did a rather shoddy job of assembling them, however. I guess some things never change. ;)

These pics are a couple of years old.

If I may its a stock frame that's been chromed. There is an excellent build thread on it in the Project forum. "Chrome Tracy" or such. 836 kit, nice bike.

My 1975 Honda CB400F cafe racer. Just purchased on 24 Nov 12 with a nice custom seat pan, fairing, clubman bars and awesome paint.  Engine needs improvement.  Next mods I have in mind are the exhaust system, replacement of center stand with a kick stand, replacement/upgrade of gauges, and some cosmetic detailing.
