    Ninja engine in CB frame.

    So I went to Backfire Moto in Seattle, WA. Lots of cool bikes there that night. What caught my eye was this guy sitting innocuously against a light post. Didn't even have a kickstand or centerstand. Just leaned up like a bicycle. Huh, weird looking bike... Then I looked closer and saw the Ninja...

    CB400TII "Bruce Campbell"

    So I guess I've been registered here for 3 years and haven't posted a build yet. I bought this bike about the same time. It had some kinks when I first got it (leaked a bit and idled horribly.) It's a '78 CB400TII that started off almost 100% stock save for some superbike bars and a missing...

    Awesome craigslist description

    http://seattle.craigslist.org/est/mcy/2970328477.html Damn it, this man should've sold door to door. He sure has a way with words.

    Cylinder sleeves not lined up?

    Have some jugs I bought off e-bay for a CB400t, and I noticed that the top of the sleeves aren't quite level with the gasket surface. Is this kosher, or am I going to have to get this fixed? Is this something I can fix at home? Lost at this one. Edit: The top of the sleeves are about .010...

    CB400t Pilot Screw Washer

    I posted the same question to hondatwins.net, but they're a bit slow so I figured I'd try here too: I'm looking for washers for the CB400T pilot screws. The previous owner removed them for some reason. I tried sourcing new screw sets from bikebandit, cheapcycleparts, and my local Honda...

    Spraymax over Appliance Epoxy?

    Does anyone have any experience with spraying Spraymax 2k over Appliance Epoxy? I've got a couple cans of Appliance Epoxy, and I'm wondering if it would be okay to go ahead with it or if I should look towards getting something else to pain my tank with. Thanks.

    Adventure Prone - A couple dudes on Hondas

    http://www.youtube.com/user/TheAdventureProne#p/u/0/ql55D-YEJOk Pretty entertaining. They do some pretty long distances on cafe racers.

    CB400T jet needle spacer?

    So I noticed my bike ('78 CB400T) was running a bit off, so I decided to tear into the carbs and see what was up. I noticed there was a little spacer in between the jet needle and seat. I said to myself, "That's weird. That's not in any of the diagrams I've seen." So I pulled them out, and set...

    Voxan - Modern Cafe Racers

    http://www.priceit.in/bikes/voxan-black-magic-price/ I'm surprised I haven't seen this here before. In my opinion, these are what a modern cafe racer should look like (maybe no the the V-Twin part of it.) Still, the French make good looking bikes. A shame their company got bought out. From...

    Cafe Madass

    Just an idea I had earlier. Would make a fun scoot, and I think it's plenty doable. Not that I have the money to do it. What do you think?

    Wire frame Glass seat

    http://www.flashbackfab.com/pages/358-5.html I know this build has been posted a couple times already, but I thought you guys would like to see how he did his seat. Looks like a pretty good alternative to having bits of blue foam everywhere.

    cb400t/cm400 timing chain installation

    Got a small problem putting the timing chain onto the cam sprocket. The service manual says to just simply put it on there, but it seems like I don't have enough slack on the chain. Is there a certain way to go about this, or am I going to just have to split the chain?
