Re: Fantasy Bike

Thanks for giving me the idea to look at e-bay.  I am not in a hurry with that buy, right now my budget would not permit it anyway.  There is also some hassle to bring in a bike from the USA to Canada, however the 400/4 is far older 15 years which is the cut out date for vehicles to be imported for those of non-USA made.  

Under 15 years old, with the exception of USA makes, no used vehicles allowed into Canada. Once I wanted to bring in an airhead R800GS, there was no way to do that. They said: "you can bring it in, use it for parts but not as a bike.

  Hey Bob,

  What's that they say about money, good looks and motorcycles? Can never  
  have too much or too many...right?

  If you'd like to have a CB400 again, you could keep an eye on eBay. I  
  don't know what you'd consider reasonable, but one just sold for  

  It looks like it was in great shape. I don't know where it was stored,  
  but the pictures were taken with it in somebody's living room. Gotta  
  love that.

  Currently there's just one more up for auction. It has a starting price  
  of $1650US...

  It sounds like it needs a few parts though. However, when I did a  
  search on eBay for "cb400" I found enough parts you could probably  
  build a bike.

  I have a friend who happened to buy one a few years ago as his "starter  
  bike." He bought it from someone who had it setting in a garage for  
  years. It took a minimum amount of work to get it running again. Anyway  
  he bought it because it was cheap and he was thinking it would be a  
  nice size to start with, and just a stepping stone to something bigger.  
  He's still riding the CB400...he really likes it. He's tried some  
  larger bikes and says they just feel big and heavy to him.

  Good luck with it.
