    Robert (Not Bob)

    Hadn't ridden since the late 80's. Recently acquired a 1980 CM400T. Had to do a fair amount of work to make it rideable again, but almost there! Still have to rebuild the front brake master cylinder, get a petcock / screen, and a back tire before getting the wind in my hair again! Neat forum. Certainly didn't have this kind of thing back in my day!

    Welcome aboard!. You'll definitely need a proper Factory Service Manual. It doesn't post pics for you, but the information is the best. PM sent.

    That's great Robert!

    I hope your title issues are easy to overcome. I know some states are easy, and others are difficult, when it comes to titles.

    Good luck!
