  1. Miscellaneous Discussion
    Hello, I have tried to save my 1981 Honda Cm400E's gas tank with gas tank puddy and a gas tank sealant/liner to no avail. I wanted to keep the stock look, but I guess Ill have to give up on that. Do you guys have any recommendations on where to get a new tank, and the dimension of the tank...
  2. Electrical Discussion
    One thing to note before I explain; my ignition is broken so right now it is just a homemade knob where the ignition had been (should have made it more secure when parking on the street, I know). I had my bike parked outside a friend's house, covered with a tarp, and someone tried to steal it. I...
  3. Tires, Wheels, and Brakes
    Just bought an 81' CM400E, and there is a plethora of things I need to fix up on it, but the main issue I am having at the moment is finding a front brake cable. I was wondering if anybody knew where to find one or one that would work or any other tips for this issue. I'm new to motorcycles and...
  4. Tune Up
    I have a 1981 Honda CM400 that turns over but does not start. I'm pretty sure I didn't clean the carb thoroughly enough, but that's beside the point. This bike has been sitting for quite some time (years), and I wanted to know what you all do with old bikes after you get them started; just some...

    Hello, all! My name is Josh and I have a 1981 CM400Custom that I'm restoring. Found it under an old barn that had fallen on top of it. Still in great shape but hasn't been ridden since 1989 (or messed with). I put on a new start solenoid and it will turn over. I'm looking for a CDI module for it...

    Hello I am Ryan. My brother had a 1980 cm400t he left out uncovered for 2 years he put a new battery in it and tried starting it. Gave up and let it sit a bit longer before he decided he was sick of looking at it. He called me and asked if I wanted it. When I got it the motor was seized, carbs...
  7. Electrical Issues
    Hello, There’s a 1981 cm400 posted local to me for $900. The bike looks nice, has aftermarket headlight, new seat, chopped off stock rear fender with a custom chrome one in its place, however the bike has no spark. It looks like the only readily available part that could be replaced is the...
  8. Frame, Suspension and Steering
    Yo guys I just had a question, my front forks on my 81 cm400a are bent and I had these extra (I wanna say there from a gl500?) forks laying around but I can tell there bigger in diameter and also are dual disk breaks instead of single like the stock forks. I was wondering if I could convert...

    I recently was gifted a 81 CM400T for my first bike. Its in great condition but the tank is filled with rust and there is a ton of holes and poor repair jobs all along the bottom of the tank seams. Can anyone help me with where I could get a new tank that doesn't require a lot of work to make...
  10. Wanted Parts and Bikes
    Must not be rusted thru and must not be a repaired tank that previously rusted thru. Small dent(s) tolerable but not those that look like your crushed grade-school lunchbox or those that became victimized by an ex-girlfriend If still wearing original paint, a later one with wing decals is...
  11. Engine Discussion
    Hi everyone, This is my first post here. I recently bought a 1981 CM400T. However, I've hit a massive roadblock and may now have a lemon on my hands. When I was attempting to change the oil filter, I found that the bolt hole for the filter and cover assembly is totally stripped, probably...

  13. Miscellaneous Discussion
    Hello y'all First time on this forum. I just picked up my first motorcycle (a 1981 CM 400E) and I want to build a simple ratty bobber out of it. I plan on keeping the stock air box but the exhaust is destroyed on this thing from the mufflers back. I'm planning on simply putting turn downs where...
  14. Project Logs
    I bought almost dead (if not completely) CM400C 1981 for $400. Odometer claim it has 32k miles, but the speedometer cable was broken so I suspect it might be much higher. Quite a big challenge for me as it is my very first project. The goal of this project is: 1) To make it run. 2) To make it...

This year i purchased my 2nd (and 3rd) bike and it's been a challange but a fun one. I live in upstate NY so the riding...

    Just bought a Honda CM400T. Great looking bike. Having trouble getting a UK registration for it from DVLA at the moment, but hope to be out and about soon. Seems smooth. Just sold a Superdream I was very happy with, can't believe the superior build of the 400. Anyone else find the rear...

    I found a cb900 for a good deal but 3rd cylinder is seized. Could a drop a 650 into it with little trouble?

  19. Fuel Supply and Carburation
    I didn't do a keyword search but figured you guys might be able to help me on the best aftermarket or simply replacement carbs purchasable. What's a good site or seller that would ship to me? I have about 250-300$ to work with and am looking to install it asap. TIA
