Greetings, all!

I'm Jon and I'm looking at purchasing an '81 CM400 (unknown type) from an acquaintance, and thought it would be wise to do some research on the bike before I got a look at it so I know what to look for. I'm fairly new to Honda, but I am at least familiar with them overall, having worked in the motorcycle industry for the last few years. When I get pictures of the bike, I'll post them up if I have questions.
While I'm here I plan to read, use the search feature frequently, and ask questions if I can't find a post or thread about my question.

I look forward to talking with you all!

Good reliable bikes, not hard to work on, most parts aren't hard to find (don't lose the right side/battery cover).

Judging by how I’ve only seen one or two of them online, I take it they are easy to lose. LOL

Welcome to the forum. Great to see another 400 series here. It looks to be in great shape.

I agree with J-T. Very reliable and I rebuilt mine from the ground up with no prior experience, but with this forum amazing knowledge and friendly people.

I’m looking forward to interacting with you all more often with this bike! I should have it in my possession by the end of the month!

Well, due to life circumstances, I have had to pass on buying the 400. I’m kind of bummed about it, but I have to do what’s right by my family.
Buying a house and buying a motorcycle are not compatible with my current level of pay.
I’ll have to save more money and try again later. :(
