Dutch Honda CB 400four Cafe Racer Build
« 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


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!!


Bought some second hand shocks from a CB750... They are +/-4cm longer than the original ones from the 400four

Making some adjustment to the frame...



I braught the frame to the pouwder coater and started refubishing the gauges.

(666 the number of the beast  ;D )



The engine got a rebuild...





And I polished some parts....

Thanks!

Last week I brought the tank and side covers to the paint shop.
Hopefully it's done next week!

This is the last pic of how it looked still with the pink color on it

Looking good... and I'm guessing you know what el conio sounds like in Spanish?

Yeah.... But it's El Conio not 'el coņo' or 'el conejo'  ;) ;D ::)
