As someone that has owned a CB400T for a while, I wouldn't pick one for any sort of custom project. They're good for what they are (reliable 2-wheeled transportation) but outside that bailiwick they...

I re-watched the 2nd Matrix movie last week and it still annoys me how they pretend Trinity couldn't outrun everyone on that black 996. It should have been like something out of a roadrunner cartoon.
