Jenn's 1975 400F :)
« on: Aug 02, 2013, 00:17:36 »
I've been drooling over the 400F since the first time I laid eyes on one. Found this little girl close by and couldn't resist.



I really like this bike in stock form, so my plan is a mostly stock restoration... and maybe a few minor changes.

I'm really excited about this bike!











A few things are obvious:
*Whole bike needs a good cleaning and polishing. Fresh paint & decals. (Need a left sidecover.)
*Seat needs repair. I plan to get a new seat cover.
*Tank needs body work.
*Those handlebars must go.
*Crash bars must go.

The bike isn't currently running. More on that later...

  • Therapy is expensive. Riding is cheap. You decide.

Better become really good friends with somebody who owns a sandblaster. That chrome has seen better days! I'll be watching and waiting for this thing to come out the gate screamin.

Personally I wouldn't ride her without going through the engine completely. When you let something like this sit, the oil breaks down into actual dark matter, the kind that make black holes 'n' shit. It pools around the crankcase and no matter how long you let the case drain, it will stay there. Kerosene isn't enough. Gotta split the case and hit it with a good nozzle on a garden hose. Chemtool is sorcery.

At the same time you can gauge how she's been cared for. Bent shift forks, marks from cam chain slap, dropped wrist-pin circlips ::) You'll be horrified at what you find, and grateful that you found it.

Oh jesus, highway bars on a standard bike... Scrap.

Oh! You gotta keep the seat the way it is! It's called character!

I forgot, if you need parts I can pick and sell 'em. Whole bikes here. So any part, you name it.
