I have a 1980 CM 400E. Will my engine, front end, swing arm, etc etc etc bolt up to a 78 CB frame?

Was getting ready to tear my bike down to get the frame dolled up and started looking for bare frames with good titles. Found a 78 CB frame with title. So long as all the major components bolt up I will be good to go. Not worried about little brackets and such.

Any insight?

CB frame is 250. Title will cost god knows how much and cost at least 400 through a title service.

Cool. Prolly the easiest way to get this thing registered. Frame is on it's way.

Wait... The frames aren't identical but most everything should bolt up. Let me see if I can find some of my pics.

EDIT: The CB frame is better designed than the CM frame, the latter being much more flexy. The biggest difference is in the rear section around the shock mounts.

yeah, the shocks mounts were really the only thing i could see that was different. But none of that stuff is on my bike anyway.
