    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

    [​IMG]

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

    [​IMG]

    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

    [​IMG]

    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...

    Rainbow007 came over a helped me dig the chopper out of the garage so we could take it to Live2Ride. The tires were sort of holding air but a tad flat but for Live2haveflats we figured it would be tires he could relate too. :lol3 I even sat the sissy bar and tank on the bike so we all can have a visual. :D

    Are those four into one pipes something else? It looks like a half of an octopus. The nice thing is they aren’t rusted and no holes in them, yet. :thumb

    Now here’s where you can use your imagination: Think 2 giggling women, one silly Honda chopper with ape hangers, no front brake, and a slick tilt trailer. It took us a couple tries, the bike got sleeping once, but we finally got it loaded and tied down. :rofl You’d think neither of us had ever loaded a bike before. Ah heck it’s Live2Ride’s bike it’s OK if we precrash it for him. No pictures of the loading procedures :lol3 just the loaded bike.

    When I got to Rockford Live2Ride, his son and his dad were all waiting. I tried to get a picture of all three of them but they all scattered surrounding the bike to get a look at it. I did get Live2Ride. Look at that silly grin, he thought it was Christmas and Santa just showed up.
    <o:p></o:p>

    Rainbow007 helped Live2Ride unload the bike while Burt supervised and I took pictures. :wink:

    He couldn’t wait to test sit his new bike. Doesn’t he look good on that thing? :freaky
    <o:p></o:p>
    [​IMG]
    <o:p></o:p>
    Then there’s the chopper Live2Ride gave me in return. We needed to load it on the trailer so I could take it home.

    It needs to go all the way forward to tie it down correctly.

    <o:p></o:p>
    Rainbow007 directs Live2Ride on the proper way to tie the bike down but he crashed it just like I crashed his bike. :rofl :lol3 :rofl
    <o:p></o:p>

    <o:p></o:p>
    OK my new chopper is loaded and Live2Ride takes one last hold of the handle bars before I take it away.
    <o:p></o:p>

    <o:p></o:p>
    The new chopper takes it’s place of honor on top my TV. I’ve always wanted an old Indian Chief to keep in my living room (I’m talking about a motorcycle, Tim) but this will do until I get an Indian.

    OK Tim now it’s all up to you. I can’t wait to see what happens with the Honda Chopper now that it’s in your hands. Go Tim, go……………
