Honda CB description

For Sale is a 1977 Honda CB400F in about 99% original condition with 3,366 miles.  It will be hard to find one as original as this.  The only aftermarket items now installed are crash bars, air cushion handle grips and a throttle lock, that's it.  I purchased this bike in July 1979 with 1,119 miles.  This bike has been in storage for more than 34 years with a squirt of Marvel Mystery Oil in each cylinder and the carbs and gas tank drained.  Storage started with it wrapped in plastic and stored in my barn.   I have kept it always thinking I would ride again or in my older years or stick it on the back of a motor home for local transportation.  Now I'm older, none of that happened, so its time for it to go. 

Everything is original except for the battery, one turn signal and the tail light lens to get an inspection sticker (original lens is available with a broken clear plate lens).  The tires are original, still hold full pressure from year to year and are in great shape.  Engine oil has been changed but it still is black from the remnants of ARCO Graphite oil that I used back then. (I still have 10 quarts of the stuff if the buyer wants it.)
 
Unfortunately with so many years of unmonitored storage, some of the plastic wrap deteriorated unnoticed and as a result of typical New England cold to warm humid air changes, there is some pitting of the chrome.  Most of it cleaned-up but there is some blister pitting
especially on the rear fender, tail light bracket, chain guard and the aftermarket crash bars (see photos).  Some of the silver engine paint has also failed.  There is a series of scratches in a small area on the front fender (photo) that were there when I got it.

Also, in the fall of 1981, as a result of hitting an oil slick during a turn at an intersection, there is some road rash on the headlight rim, tachometer base, brake fluid reservoir and the underside of one exhaust pipe (see photos)
(not to mention a separated shoulder).  Also, one turn signal had to be replaced.  I never registered it again until 2014. 

Since uncovering it and cleaning it up two years ago (3,283 miles), I have ridden it each year only for required inspection and around the block to make sure all is still OK.  It runs great, looks great, sounds great and still goes like hell for its size.

Bike is located in southeastern Mass.  If buyer is local, viewing and inspection can be arranged.  Buyer assumes responsibility for pick-up or shipping.  I will work with the buyer's shipping company as required.  uShip should be available through eBay. 

Full final payment in cash, cashiers check or postal money order within 7 days of the end of the auction.  Check payments must clear before bike and title are delivered to buyer or shipping company.

Shawn Higbee Wins On The Brough Superior Taylor Made Racing Moto2

Thu, 01 May 2014

In only its second race appearance, the Brough Superior Taylor Made Racing Moto2 bike competed in the WERA F1 and B Superbike events on April 27th at the Autoclub Speedway in Fontana, California, run in conjunction with the first round of the GEICO Superbike Shootout, presented by Yamaha. During the F1 race, rider Shawn Higbee moved up to as high as 2nd place from a 5th row start on the Brough Superior TMRGP2 bike.  The TMRGP2′s lightweight all carbon fiber chassis and 600cc Honda powerplant demonstrated impressive cornering speed on the tight infield sections but could not match the top speed of the heavily modified 1000cc F1 bikes on the long straights. On the last lap Higbee was shuffled back to 4th place at the finish line.

Joey Dunlop on a V4 Honda at the '83 TT

Onboard video footage doesn't get a lot better than this: Joey Dunlop during practice at the TT in 1983 onboard a factory Honda RS850R. An 859cc ultra-short stroke V4 Honda that Joey mastered around The Island, later winning the TT Formula 1. Although the 'production' race, the RS850R stretched that to the limit.
