    1980 CB400N tank swap?

    Hello.

    I am looking to change the fuel tank of my CB400N. Since converted to a cafe racer, the lines of the tank do not look right.

    I need a tank that has a straight lower line and fits the frame without too many modifications.

    Do you have any suggestions?

    I honestly wouldn't change the tank at all, I love that style of tank. I'd like to have one for my CB350. I'd change the seat a bit to work with the tank instead.

    If you do want to change the tank it may be hard to find one since the CB400 has such a wide frame in that area. I think the CB450K has a wide tunnel under the tank but the section where it connects to the frame is narrow though. A tank from an earlier CB400T would fit as well as a CM400 I believe.

    I'd go for something like this:

    Thank's for the reply. I will change the tank, for sure.

    I will try and track don a CM tank. Is the 400 one larger than the 250?
