For that price, I would get it just for the wonderful soundtrack it emits; gear driven cams, great V-4 rumble. I had a '91; great bike, a bit heavy for my tastes but makes a great sport-tourer.

Hmmm... tempting, but gotta wonder about repairs if it's not running. Might be the R/R, might not, bit of a gamble.

Paging Duke to the red phone.



1976 Dodge Full Custom Show Van, Bed, Bar, Love Seats, Light Show.LOOK - $5000



I have a one of a kind full custom show van that I was told was built for the famous musician Bootsy Collins. The van is called Bay Strip with a mural of the SF Bay Area Skyline on one side with the bay bridge, city scape sfo, etc.. and the other side is done with a mural of old Las Vegas MGM, Sands, etc.. With the rat pack Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Dean Martin and other famous iconic landmarks when this van was built in 1976. This van has been fully customized with a bed in the rear, a hidden safe, Lake pipe side exhaust, full custom body mods with rear fins frenched tail lights, spar tire cover, custom grill, hood scoop, refrigerator custom air brushed, love tunnel, mirrored ceiling, love seats, a full bar with dispenser and sink, matching glasses custom to the van, swivel captain chairs, curtains, sunroof, light show, CB radio, stereo with eq top of the line for 1976, shag carpet through out with crushed velour interior, matching lighter and ashtray custom made for van, swivel stand for TV but TV is no longer available. This van does run and drive and is on current non op, the clear coat is peeling, it needs a good cleaning, it needs fuses and to be looked at to get all the electronics to work again. Basically you can either restore it to its former glory or do some maintenance to it, register it and be the talk of the town. I guarantee you will never ever find an old school custom van like this one on the planet built for a celebrity musician from new. The amount of money spent on this van back in 1976 must equate to $100k in today's money. This van has recently been used as a display for the SF art exhibition and for a famous rock video. The van in being stored at our music studio and is ready for a new home. The price is $5,000 or interesting trade. 510-299-303one

That is the HF one.

They are functional, but not great. I find it a bit tough to get my XR400 on/off easily by myself since the wheels drop down into the slots. OK for occasional use(which is all mine gets used for), but if you use it regularly a better one might be wise. When they first came out a couple years ago they were on sale for $80, current sale price is $110.

Classic 1975 Honda CB400F Super Sport - $2495 (Larkspur/Perry Park)

http://denver.craigslist.org/mcy/3378382288.html

This bike is in very good condition and completely original.
There are a few minor cosmetic issues - a dent in the front fender and some small paint chips on top of the gas tank.
It starts right up and runs well. The tires are fairly new with very little wear.
This is a great investment bike ready to be restored.

Very special bike. Glad I'm too far away or I'd fall for it.

That is prolly the best description. Definitely works, just better on smaller bikes.

blakebird is right. The connie for $2100 is a steal! I had one of the original ones in 1986 and bought another in 2000. I sold it to a friend and I think it has 84000 miles on it now. With new tires and the backrest I am glad I live 500 miles south or I would have already bought it!!!!!!!!!!!
