    Cool bike! I'd love a cafe racer like that now. Excuse my ignorance, is that a CB400 /450? (I used to own a Honda CB250 Superdream and then later a CB900. Loved them).
    Well done. Nice bike.

    Oh it is! I did wonder but the engine looked larger! Well done for getting such a nice example. God I wish I'd kept all my old bikes and hadn't had to sale them in order to buy the next one!
    A couple of my friends used to own Honda CX500's while they were motorcycle couriers in London. We used to call those bikes "plastic maggots" because of the small plastic cowling they had and they were thought of as a bit ugly. They now make the most incredible cafe racers out of them!
    Will you be taking it to any track days at Lydden??

    No way!! You and LammyR6 are both really good! I can't believe you wouldn't want to do it yourself. (Not that I would, but you know what you're doing!). - Maybe if Bike Shed organize another Cafe Racer day at Lydden next year you could have a go at that? - (Or is the professional rider LammyR6??). All the best with it whatever you do!
