She's got a ticket to ride!

Discussion in 'Olympia' started by R6Roller, Jun 6, 2012.


  1. 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.

  6. "Gorgeous", coincidentally the bikes new name.

    Thank you Sir, I will be looking for the runs in the frame paint.

    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. :smile:

    That bike looks nicely sorted out, but if you have any questions (or need to borrow a high quality Carbtune carb balancer) lemme know.
     
  12. Good choice! SWEEET
     
  13. That rocks! Those carbs will need some TLC to stay in sync but excellent find.
     
  14. A kick start! ... Bravo! ... For her first ride. That is the way it's done. Good for her.

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

    Great find and enjoy it...
