1975 Honda CB400f

This is my first ground up restoration/custom build, I learnt many new skills along the way. Every part of this bike has been work on, i’ll start with the body. The fiberglass seat is a one off piece, designed to match the stock tank and just big enough to hid the battery and m-unit. Later on I added the Ducati 900ss front fairing. I cut out and modified the fairing to fit dual headlights and a one off blue windshield. It’s an acid trip sticking your head under it as you do the tone! Tucked under fairing i mounted the stock tacko and a small speedo for a vintage race look.
The paint was designed around the original tank logo color matching the blue and gold for the classic racing stripe running from the fearing to the seat.
The frame went under the knife with a few rust repairs and all the unwanted mounts shaved off under the seat for that classic cafe look. Out of mesh and sheet metal I fabricated a mudguard in front of the velocity stacks. Mounting red led lights on the stainless underbelly tray they light up the mudguard when you get on the brakes. Looks bitching at night!
The engine was completely rebuilt by a local mechanic. I did some work on it seating the valves and painted/polished all the parts. I also rebuild the carbs and tuned the bike. The latest addition to the bike is the stainless headers. They really pushed my fabrication skills and knowledge on exhaust tuning to the next level. Not only do they look stunning they gave the bike performance boost and a fantastic exhaust note!
