    I believe 'Sir Eaton Hog' looked at this bike about 10 pages ago and didnt have the nicest things to say about it, primarily how it didnt warrant the price tag. Not trying to hurt feelings but i believe the posting oversells it!

    over $1000 for a Trail 90!? whoa!

    I've been tracking prices on these bikes since last year and they seem to range from 5000.00 to 1500.00. There is an active market for them.
    As usual, there are overpriced turds out there but also gems that have been taking up space in the back of someone's garage.

    The RD400 I looked at a few months back was not this one, it was a complete POS and not worth anywhere near the money that was being asked.

    This one, however is probably the one to buy. I know the bloke (Jim) who owns it, he is a perfectionist and pretty most everything on it will have been gone through and made right.

    The one thing I don't get about the Daytona models is that they still have points ignition - in 1977, the RD400E and then the 400F has electronic ignition and better porting which made them a much better bike to ride.

    If you bought this RD400 Daytona and looked after it, it is ulikely you would ever lose money on it and turn some heads at the same time.

    Neat bike- just wish they had set it up like the Nighthawks with hydraulic lifters and a shaft drive -

    I agree the hydraulic lifter would have been cool! The shaft would be OK but not a deal killer.

    So, is this going to be the "BIGGER" one?? Hate to say it but I like the looks of it....

    It probably should also have a 6th gear.

    I thought Harley was the only company with crapy enough technology to still do dual shocks. :rofl Good looking bike though

    here's what Honda says:

    Twin-Shock Rear Suspension

    Easy to adjust and equipped. Featuring preload adjustability, the CB1100's rear suspension proves that the traditional design, done right, can still provide excellent handling characteristics.

    Not a single negative to quality dual shocks. And quite a few positives.

    Especially if they are Ohlins invented/developed/copied speed sensitive damping "deflective shim stacks", rather than fixed orifice, they can work great just like the Ohlins equipped twin shock Husqvarnas of the early to mid 80's

    Most street bikes have very little travel/shock stroke so they can be made very easily to work well

    Twin shocks are so much easier to remove/service and allow balanced airboxes on some motor architectures
