    Nice looking bike. I have thought about getting one of these to pair with my '75 CB400F...too many bikes currently and am in the downsizing mode...GLWS.

    Thanks! Despite having the same name/designation, they're nothing alike. It is one of Honda's great achievements and a hoot to ride.

    FYI, there is no more spare rear tire. The nearly bald one on the bike got a hole in it on a test ride (Gods, this thing is fun to ride!) the other day, so the spare is now on the bike. :)

    Here's the replacement with all of the goodies on it. :)
