Sacrilege to even mess around with something as iconic as a 1975 Honda CB400F? For the most part, yes. My thought was.."What if Honda had made a European-only CB400F "R" model. What would it have looked like? That was the direction I took with this bike. It came to me cosmetically thrashed. I cleaned it up and it looked OK (see pic). But I wanted to take it to another level. It was totally stripped to bare frame and every nut, bolt, and component on this bike was either cleaned, replaced, refurbished, rebuilt, or re-painted. The tail section is from an original '75 Ducati 750 SS that's been highly modified for the 400F. The step that the stock Ducati seat snapped to is gone, the stock Duc lines softened and refined, ears have been formed to accept the mini turn signals, an LED tail light has been frenched into it, and it was re-glassed and strengthened at all mounting points including the seat pan. It attaches at the stock rear fender mounts. I also formed small "blisters" around the stock seat hinges so that if a future owner wants to return it to stock, they can. The seat is leather with the pleats matching the width of the stripes in the paint. The front fender is a modified '81 Honda Hawk part. It has been shortened a total of seven inches, reshaped, the cable guide swapped to the correct side and it hugs the tire so nicely now. I've been doing high-end motorcycle painting and body work for forty years and the finish on this bike is gorgeous. Keeping the stock Varnish Blue was essential, but with the addition of CBX-styled stripes and pin stripes and correct Honda decals.
