I sell a complete overhaul kit for the CB400/4 oil pump on eBay. 8 O rings are needed.

No comparison whatsoever between 500/550 and the 750's. I ride 400/500/550 and 750 four's and the 500/550's are sort of similar but the 400 and 750's are not comparible to anything else in the model range. Regardless of which you go for, to get a good one, I mean really, really good, you will pay top money. Anything less than really, really good, should be cheaper to buy but may cost you more in the long run.
I should also have said it depends on the age and model of each engine size as to how they perform.  A 1969 CB750 is a totally different bike to a 1977 model. A 550 K is different again to a 550F. Honda were forever evolving with each newer model, not just in looks but engineering too.

Jason. Could you ascertain if the big black panel in the center was a transfer or paint?. I have been having the same conversation on another forum about the CB750/4 tanks about how they were applied originally.

Also saw this T500 in Whitby. 1972 'L' reg. An absolute stunner. The chap bought it out of a private collection last year, 12000 miles and totally, totally original. I had one back in the day but mine was a pile of shite, this one was just beautiful.

Had a lovely ride out today to the North Yorkshire Moors and Whitby. Found a stunning place called Levisham, in Rydale. Talk about up hill down dale, there was plenty of that and the scenery was stunning. Sheep all over the road and saw a steam train chuffing along. Took a slight wrong turn between Levisham village and Levisham Station, it looked like a small lane, then it turned into a farm track but we kept going until we were off roading. Good thing we were on the CD250's......You find the best places on a Honda 😁. Just over 250 miles today. Thanks to Ash and Cathy for the cuppa on the way up there.

CB750 / Re: P & K Seat Covers

Never used P&K but they use Bobs stuff and make the seats. We always use have lots of other forum members. You have to do the Honda stencil yourself, as its a Honda copyright infringement which some (most) sellers in UK have been threatened with legal action by Honda. Easy enough to do yourself though

Cool bike Julie. The exhaust looks reassuringly Loud.
I wish we had some dry weather here to go out for a spin, tomorrow should be sunny though.
It's a Laser system, not mega, mega loud but the tone is fantastic. It just makes you want to ride faster though, just to hear it at its best 😀😀😀 The Yoshimura I have fitted to my CB550/4 Mongrel has the same effect on me 🙄🙄🙄🙄

CB350/400 / Re: Wow DS wants £7.5k for a restored 400
« on: June 19, 2019, 02:33:46 PM »
I don't think those prices are stupid at all. If they have been done properly, including the engine / gearbox etc, I think it's an ok price. We all know how much it costs us to restore our bikes properly and fully and if we DIY, our labour cost nowt, where Long John Silver has had to pay the wage of the people that did it. I don't know if it was his in house people who did them or if he subbed the work out to his usual chap but either way....Sliver had to pay. But, at those prices, they need to be 100% spot on, none of the Sliver superseded x 10 parts he seems to sell as OEM these days 🤔🤔🤔
