Title: Dutch Honda CB 400four Cafe Racer Build
Post by: KingConen on Mar 03, 2014, 16:22:02
Hi everyone,

I am Roy 35 years old and I live in Holland.
I want to share my CB400four cafe racer build with you all.
My project started Dec31 2012 and at this time the bike is almost finished.
This thread will mostly contain pics that I've made during the build....


As I said... It started Dec31 2012 when I bought this little pink CB400four
(http://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/s750x750/sh0.08/e35/15802154_387458998274184_681201926477447168_n.jpg?)

I almost inmidiately started to strip down the bike.

Removed some extra weight...

And making a new mounting point for the exhaust

Meanwhile it's February I got a very nice birthday gift from my wife and kids.... New seat!!
(https://scontent.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/10487183_1059248850771843_6404970282963661709_n.jpg?oh=92e274f62856b0fff79860b9e48f0219&oe=59643D0D)

Bought some second hand shocks from a CB750... They are +/-4cm longer than the original ones from the 400four
(https://scontent.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/11407116_1059248860771842_3505859754677084131_n.jpg?oh=317c379f4749685d1269745d93497e5a&oe=594DBF5A)

Making some adjustment to the frame...
(https://scontent.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/10457927_1059248884105173_1883490440637646026_n.jpg?oh=fbcee3967ca47ab11bd91806cc463236&oe=595B0599)

Hopefully it's done next week!

Thanks Y'all!!!
This is my first build and am also pleased with the result of how it stands right now!
The tank is going to be high gloss black with the original red&gold Honda decalls and on top.
It's going to be painted by a very talented painter at A1 Restores over here in the Netherlands
You can check his portfolio over here https://www.facebook.com/pg/A1restauraties/photos/?tab=albums (https://www.facebook.com/pg/A1restauraties/photos/?tab=albums) or here https://www.facebook.com/A1restauraties?fref=ts (https://www.facebook.com/A1restauraties?fref=ts)

looks like a David Silver Spare unit to me? Be interested to see how it fits. I had an issue with #2 pipe. They sent a replacement (for free), but it still had to be 'massaged' into place. Can't wait to see the paint job. Great build.

You're right David Silver does sell them too but I ordered mine at http://shop.honda4.nl/catalog/ (http://shop.honda4.nl/catalog/) and it shure wasn't cheap. :-[

Do you've got a pic with yours fitted on? I'm going to fit mine this weekend if I find the time for that.

Great looking bike. Love that muffler too. Just a little off stock, but still suits the look really well.

Glad to see I'm not the only one to have issues with the headers, but it looks like you got it sorted.

Yeah, it took me quite some time and patience to get them accurate but they'd line up great.

Hope the tank and sidecovers are done soon...can't wait for the first ride! 8)

I really enjoy riding my 400 but 2 of the 4 carbs just keep flooding.... :(
So I decided to clean them up for the second time.

(https://scontent.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/1690114_1059247800771948_8219441081593269854_n.jpg?oh=eb43741e504bc4e6eb9f35943a15ab1d&oe=594D029B)

After instaling I already noticed that it ran much better,
The carbs just need to get synchronized which is plannend next Thuesday!

It's been over a year since I've updated this topic!

I was just busy riding the bike!  ;) lol!
But during the winter I've made some small changes to the bike.....

At first the tail light.
It bordered me that it was a LED and it didn't fit with the classic look of the bike.
So I replaced it with this more classic looking on.

And did a cilinder head overhaul... used a spare head in case it should go wrong...

Well it's been a while since I've posted something in this topic.
I've just added all the pictures (AGAIN!! >:( ) cause somehow they weren't visible anymore. ???

Anyhow I've still got the bike and I enjoy riding it a lot!

I'm also working on a new CB400four project for more than a year now.
