She's got a ticket to ride!
Yesterday was quite something. My wife, Brianne, and I have been talking about getting her first bike for some time now. Being a beginner I wanted to get her something reliable and affordable but I never expected to bring this little puppy home. The previous owner of the last 15 years was on the brink of tears letting her go, as I tied her down to the bed of my pickup. I felt really bad for the old guy and assured him she was going to a humble and happy home and would be well looked after.

I present to you a classic 1975 Honda Cb400F Supersport.

Insane, right!? Tempted to do something with it, but it's SOOOOO nice stock. I might just have to find another one to modify.

I have one exactly like it, right down to the identical tank dent.

That bike looks nicely sorted out, but if you have any questions (or need to borrow a high quality Carbtune carb balancer) lemme know.

PLEASE - don't mess with the pipes!!
THIS is one of my favorite bikes!!
here is a shot of an almost TOO clean SS at a Backfire Moto a year and a half ago...


The whole bike seemed to be chromed - and it was all very pretty!!
Almost too pretty...

Great find and enjoy it...

Training is going really well, after only three sessions we're already turning comfortably without touching the ground. I'm so extremely proud.
