    Picked up a CB400 frame yesterday (Friday) to just steal a bottom rail but looking at it I might just use it for a Restomod 1975 CB400.
    Notice I said “Restomod” and not Cafe Racer.
    I won’t mind not having a centre stand and I can make a side stand bracket. I have a spare engine already so it might work out ok.

    A PO has cut off the centre stand lugs as well as the side stand bracket but apart from that and a couple of other minor brackets missing it is in good nick.
    If I get a chance to compare it against my original frame on the weekend I will make up my mind.

    All I need to do is find the time. I am spending the night in High Dependency Ward at Westmead watching over my son tonight. Not really how I had planned my return home from a work trip but you gotta do what you gotta do.

    So long as The Restomod has mudguards, you will be forgiven.

    OH YES.. Factory ones at that.. it just might be missing the centre stand and be a different colour.... might make a new BROWN seat for it though :lolsign:

    I actually removed the frame from the car this afternoon after catching some sleep and did a comparison to my still assembled CB400... This frame will ONLY be used for the good bottom rail now as a PO has absolutely butchered it from a road bike point of view.
    They have very roughly cut off not only the centre stand mounts and side stand mounts but all the battery box mounts as well as a large loop on the RHS that is used for the muffler mount.
    So no restomod.. maybe @Jethalter can use what is left of the frame when I am finished to move along on his CB400 project.

    Lucky I did not take any pics of the wiring harness that I removed with tin snips.

    Guys like you and murdo are excused. You'll be doing the cutting for a reason and not to be a dick.

    Make yourself up a stand to bolt it to the floor so you can get parts on the lower quadrant of the wheel.
    Much easier than on a bench and you can then add some pressure to it.

    Replaced rear brake pads on the Triumph Sprint with GoldFrens. Have a look at the uneven wear in the 2nd photo:

    Cleaned and freed up the caliper pad pins etc, so hopefully won't wear like this again!!

    That's a stuck piston or seized slide pin.

    will put him on my list- bike mechanic not happy losing a cmsnl sale and margin and said he could not guarantee the job- all i want is a guarantee on his workmanship as i doubt japanese generics would be faulty.
