Tom, looks like somebody is going to get this for about a grand. 30,000 miles is a lot for a 400F. I always have liked these. When I bought my 360 back in '75 there was one of these sitting next to it in the showroom. Those were the days of ape hangers and I didn't understand sport bikes. The CB400F was about $150 more than the CB360T when new. I always have wondered.
This summer I will finish the GL1100. After that I'm trolling for an early CB750. Here is a 400F that has been on the Seattle area Craigslist for the last couple of months. The seller has dropped the price $200. This one has possibilities: https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/mcy/d/1975-cb400f-400-cb-cbf/6525028940.html

Drives me absolutely bonkers when people write listings that crappy. Put the make and year in the CList provided fields so it shows up in searches! :mad:

Nice bike though :D

Yeah, I had one in the late '70s before moving back up to a 750, and I loved it. It likes to rev and handled really well. 30k miles is a bit for it though, lots of time to get abused and suffer poor maintenance

I would not buy that bike, I mean go and judge it for yourself if you want to. But I have talked to the guy about it pretty extensively and he is a 400 guy, he breaks the down and parts them out. and builds them. He bought this as some kind of package and is flipping it. I wouldn't trust that he didn't pick every part that he wanted out of the bunch and then leave the buyer of this bundle with whatever leftovers he didn't want.

If you do want a 400F in Seattle there is one asking 2200 in the madrona area that looks to be pretty complete. I talked to that guy as well and he seems like a nice guy. He is motivated to sell.

If that's the orange one on seattle craigslist that's in boxes it also has a rather worrying partner ad...
According to the ad whoever currently owns it bought it for half what he's selling it for and is now trying to flip it for double.

And given the above information that the guy knows which parts to keep, run and run fast
