Howdy. So, if you came across a 1978 Honda CB400T Hawk II with just under 400 miles on it for just over $2K, would you snap it up? It would need tires (the ones on it are the originals), and there is a minor ding or two along with some minor pitting of the chrome, but it runs nicely and has been garage-kept. I'd appreciate hearing any caveats you folks might offer up. Thanks!

Just expect it to leak oil as soon as you start riding it regularly and also expect to replace a lot of rubber parts and all fluids (brakes/forks/carb boots etc.) before it is mechanically sound. Good news would be that there shouldn't be much wear on any engine internals/sprockets/suspension. I'd definitely take having to replace original honda stuff over having to repair other people's bad work
