My CB400f Supersport project
« on: Sep 22, 2017, 04:44:53 »

Hi, plan to share a bit of my CB400 build project on here.. I picked this bike up a couple of years ago.. in good condition and ran really well,  tank was an awful blue and it needed some tidying. But while purists will disagree I felt my CB400 although cool.. for me needs bringing into 2017 just a little so there will be no frame cutting.. I'm keeping her standard and some nice gentle mods.

Of course on taking the bike apart I start to notice problems, and poor repair work by previous owners and 3 hours later I have a frame and a bag of bits..  So finally the frame is done and I've started the rebuild .. !

Anything that I can reuse I will, had to buy new stanchions which hurt but so far going ok..  I have custom wheels being made, hopefully I can fit a 130/140 rear tyre.



She doesnt look to bad.. but underneath so many bad fixes...



The tank was done in cellulose ... and the wiring.. omg.











Won't get much done this weekend.. thanks to selfish friends who have invited us to their wedding... lol! !

Looking good.  That's a pretty big tire for the 400.  Any performance plans in mind?   I'm running a 110 on mine and love it.  What's your plans for the bike?

I ran a 130 on my 400f and never liked it. It's too wide and throws the handling off. I was much happier when I switched back to a 110

Thanks all, now I've got them back I think 130 is optimistic and I'll be looking at a 120, rear and 100 front.

Engine is staying std apart from electronic ignition.. carbs fettled and a Delkevic exhaust. I want to be able to carry a pillion on this bike so I may use the std seat.. or have a trimmed down one made in the same style just a nit more modern.

Fenders will be given a trim, but building as I go on this one..

Thank you!  I'm slowly working to get all of the build loaded up.  The bike is almost done.  Those rearsets are made my ttr400.com  His products are amazing!
