Here's one, looks all there apart from the carbs.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HONDA-CB400F-CB-400-FOUR-1975-ENGINE-MOTOR-/174815465009?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m2548.l6249&mkrid=710-127635-2958-0

Missing a few exhuast studs - hope they aren't snapped off.

A few fins are broken as well but it's a cheap engine and has the side cases included, most don't.

He’s near me so if you need help collecting it etc…

I’ll put it in my garage while you work out how to get over here.
