That is one nice CB400. Almost bought a 1980 recently and only decided against it because I have no PO history. Sure wish they made them today.

That Yamaha sure looks nice.

I like the TU250 also. It was the price and timing that lead me to the CB250.

The miles are high. Is this a fair price or look elsewhere?
