A project for Live2Ride
 
This is what a '75 or '76 Honda CB400F Supersport is supposed to look like :thumb

The bike above is my pride and joy although it does have a blue tank on it now. I also have this other bike that was used as a parts bike to get mine in original condition. Live2Ride needs something to do in the winter so he's going to help me out by removing an unused bike from my garage. :deal I pulled three of my bikes out of the garage today, put them in the back yard to clean them up then pushed and shoved a few other things around to get to the chopper so I could take some pictures for Live2Ride. :huh

OK Live2Ride, here's what you've been waiting for: :eek1

You wanted to see the handlebars and forks - - - as you can see I put the bars to good use (I'd been wondering where that extension cord disappeared too :lol3 ).

Dang, the tire looks like it's still holding air, that's better than the tires you were using last year. :clap

Of course every good chopper needs a sissy bar, heck it even has a decent pad on it. It had been so many years since I'd seen that thing I forgot that it had the pad. :norton

I thought the bike had been piped but I was wrong, it still has stock pipes but it has after market shocks. I don't know anything about this shock but I bet it was the hot ticket in the 70s but no so much for this century. :rofl

It has an instrument panel, sort of, and I even found the key. :thumb

Of course you'll need a tank, I'm not so sure how good that's going to look with flames on it but it will be unique. :lol3

OK Tim, now that I've thrown this out here for the NWet ADV community to see you're going to have to produce something out of this thing. Ohhhhhhh this is going to be good.:rofl

And you're just telling us now???? Hey, wait a minute we've seen the rattle can painted Adventure Ninja and it doesn't have any pin stripes on it. What gives?? :huh Some nice gold stripes on that bike would really bring out it's color. :deal :lol3

Eh honestly i havent had much gumption to bust out the brushes lately. But i figured this project would be better if it were a community effort:rofl
That and the type of bike and the shape of the tank dosent lend itself well to stripes...
