what do u think?

I think it looks pretty cool. I'm doing this same bike for my younger brother, and I'll tell you one thing, I can't get over how FUNKY the frame design is! The seat portion especially. I think you should have it hardtailed by somebody. This is the route we plan on going. I'd probably also do a smaller headlight, but it's all just personal taste. Dig the bars and paint job. I see you also ditched the front ComStar wheel. Good one, there. I hated the later CM Comstars as opposed to the CB ones. They not only changed the design (in a bad way) they went smaller! There are so many differences between my CB400 and my brother's CM400. You probably wouldn't be able to tell just looking at pictures. I know I was fooled until I had his CM in the garage to compare.

hey what is the top speed you guys get on your 400's?

Im liking it man, bars look sick! But why the skate truck and wheels on the rear fender, not really getting that.

65-70 is where I just about max. My bike kind of stutters a bit at first, but it gets there. Kind of afraid to ride it on the freeways for that reason, as I feel like I'm strangling it. Lol. Real fun to speed around town on it though. I bought a CB750 Hondamatic a while back ago and that is truly a blast to ride. I put the early carbs on it and it really hauls ass!

But another truck on the bars and you could ride it upside down

06-29-2010, 12:40 PM
ya mine as well. i did take it on the freeway and that was no fun hahah

thats what happends when u drink and think something is a good idea and the stock holes on the fender worked perfect lol

Is that a CM frontend? I've only seen drums on CMs.

07-02-2010, 1:10 AM

I had a CM 250 ('84 I think) years ago that I would ride on the freeway all the damn time. I would hold that bitch peged for hours at a time. Never blew up on me LOL. I took good care of it tho, regular oil changes and all that shit. Had it for 2 years. It maxed out at 67MPH.

What is the front wheel off of?

03-18-2011, 6:23 PM
Sweet Bike bro! I want to do something like that with my CM400a. I love that you changed out that comstar front wheel. Where did you get the wheel? I think that the CM400t had wire wheels. I want to change mine out but im not sure if i get something with different dimensions will it be problematic somehow.

Paint looks good, definitely an improvement over all from the get go. I thought you had a board strapped to the fender at first then I realized theres a truck...no board

11-13-2011, 3:44 PM
the trucks are an interesting touch...
dio you have plans to alter the tail?
either way it looks good. any modified cm/cb 400/450 is cool.
