    That might bear a resemblance to me... The helmet is too large and slid back on his head, might even have the foam padding inserts removed. He'll get a wider view, if his eyes aren't streaming with tears in the wind... I guess that's why you buy from a store, to be correctly fitted.

    Can you imagine Lawry Daley with a crash hat on.
    He looks like the original Chickenhawk so I think his nose would stick out regardless of the helmet padding.

    The tyres on the back are cut and paste from a catalogue online. The angle of shadow from the canoe doesn't match that of the bag on top or those on the bike

    While I am not a fan of "murdered out Cafe Racer" builds there are some builds along the "resto-mod" line that I can appreciate... even when it is done to a classic bike such as the Honda CB400F.
    This article is about one such build.. I am not a big fan of the clip-ons but the rear cowl and seat look almost like it could have been a factory option... I am glad they stayed with the factory pipes and the factory colour... probably about as much modification as I would like to see on a classic... and yes... it is her bike. Those gloves look super comfy too

    Well I was so happy that it had a painted OEM front guard that I figured best to be thankful for small mercies.

    Haha... what rear guard? As I think I said... I am more a purist than anything but... the rear end is probably period correct to some of the mods that were done.. it is reminiscent of a Guiliari seat that was popular on the 750's.
    I just thought that it was a reasonable mix of Classic and modified... hopefully they didnt cut the rear frame.. :)

    I just saw that. But the 250 might have a few cons with it... Had one of those briefly, too. But I'm finding some limitations to the 200, too. Especially against say a yz426f..
