    After selling the ZZR250 late last year. My son picked this up from the motorcycle dealership at Dubbo.

    Nice CB400 Super Four..

    Needs a little bit of a cosmetic clean up, but otherwise, all really good.

    "Brocky" our Maltese/Shitzu cross decided to "photo bomb" the third photo..:lolsign:

    Bike has cleaned up well.

    Needed a new headlight as the reflector had cracked.

    Removed the LED spotlights. Didn't like them. So if anyone is interested in them, send me a PM, will be happy to sell them.

    Tacho wasn't working at the time of pickup last year. Bike shop told me it was a sensor in the engine that was the problem.. but i think that they might have thought it was the ECU as I was asking for my deposit back and was wanting to walk out the door. But the shop owner came out and started negotiating a lower price and cheaper deals on tyres. They said the tyres were road legal and provided a pink slip etc with the bike... don't know how. they had less than 2mm of tread depth left.. No way I would let my tyres get that low.

    So ended up pickup up the bike and trailering it back to Tamworth.

    Found that the tacho issue was just a bad connection. When we removed the LED spot lights it looked like a wire had been wrongly cut/spliced by the previous owner when they installed the lights. Fixed the wire and the tacho came to life. IMG_6506.jpg IMG_6514.jpg IMG_6518.jpg IMG_6524.jpg

    Have also purchased the missing grab rail and will now be fixing 2 small 50cent sized dents in the tank and then a respray.

    But now my son has decided that riding is not for him... sort of.

    He now wants to save up for a Can Am Ryker instead...

    So after fixing a few cosmetics, looks like I'll have this up for sale in the coming months.

    Pity. its a great fun bike to ride.. Reminds me of my old GSXR400 (1984).. the sound from that staintune pipe is really something. I'd be tempted to keep it myself, but, I would rarely ride it enough to warrant keeping it.
