Well I have not posted in a while. Been busy though. So I recently moved to the Moncton area and am looking to have the motor on my '73 rebuilt. Do you guys have any suggestions or recommendations?

On rebuilders?? A little far out from you now but there is a guy in New Maryland (near Fredericton) named Sam Kay who does excellent work on these old bikes. He did the full tune up, valves, timing and carb synch on my 73 750 and it came back sounding like it just rolled of the assembly line. I am taking my wife's newly rebuilt 76 400F to him this spring for him to work his magic. Let me know if you need his info, I can PM it to you.

Hey NBers. I'm the only one in Saint John so far, I think. 1975 CB750K, and her name is Rhonda.

Hi everyone , new member today.
My project bike I am now working on is a 1975 Honda CB400f supersport.
Anyone know where I can find parts? Have found some on eBay of course and others over in Europe.
Live in Moncton

Thanks in advance for any help.

Welcome Snowman, lots of info & parts on our site.  Just bought a set of 323's from a fellow member, it's all out there & available, plus free advice ( there are some true experts here). Cheers!

Snowman,

For me personally, because we are not near a major city like Toronto or Montreal, I find there are a couple of options.

1. Look up Tidd's Honda. It's a Mom & Pop type of dealer in Houlton Maine. Great people to deal with. They will bring in what you need (if they can get it) and call you when it gets there. Drive across the border and pick it up! Even if you have to pay duty, you save by getting US prices and not paying for freight and shipping charges for it to come in from a major city.

2. David Silver Spares (England)...excellent source, great customer service, online tracking, and finally......ships to your door in New Brunswick cheaper than most Canadian or US parts dealers. I got 4 full carb rebuild kits, fork seals, a clutch cable and brake pads. Cost me about $8 cdn for the shipping and only took 6 days.
