    1978 CB400A. these pics are from the day i put some Sportster mufflers on. the PO scrapped the rusted-out originials before I bought it. it needs some tank paint, a seat recover, and a new CDI.

    23,300 miles.

    Nexxus pipes, s/s headers, wing-rack for luggage.

    I actually prefer the 1995/96 colour scheme (black/grey/yellow), but couldn't pass this up.

    Nice find Ray. Judging from the position of those bars, it looks like the riding position is very neutral and comfortable.

    I see I'm going to have to read this whole thread...You all have some really nice bikes!!

    Here is a very brief summary of my affair with the CBR platform...

    First it was a new red 2006 600RR
    [​IMG]

    Then that bike became silver
    [​IMG]

    Then I sold that one and bought a new black 2007 600RR
    [​IMG]

    Which I had for exactly 4 years, 36,000 miles, raced it, was absolutely in love with it, and it eventually became this:
    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately, I had to sell it in 2011, before I embarked on a 16 month, solo bicycle tour of the entire USA.

    Got home a few months ago, and last Saturday I went down to LA to buy this 2008 600RR, with 620 miles on it:
    [​IMG]

    I rode it home 8 days ago, and immediately tore it down to the motor+frame, and have been meticulously rebuilding it to my standards. I will finish the rebuild tomorrow. :D

    Here is my current set up with a picture from a recent trip to test out my stuff before a trip next month out west. It is lacking tent /sleeping bag in this photo. This is my main transportation as I haven't had a serious car for several years. The rear luggage is currently a permanent set up. It is fairly stock, aside from the mix of aftermarket/oem bodywork and luggage. I didn't feel the need for to many mods with this motorcycle, just the urge to ride.

    This was my first sportbike. A 2003 CBR 600 RR.
