HONDA CB400N Superdream / Hawk Cafe

Post  nobudgetracer on Sun 8 Feb - 13:11

A must see film about Dustin Kott, the Californian bike builder who makes custom British style Cafe racers out of old japanese bikes: http://vimeo.com/21847668

My original CB400N Superdream / Hawk:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvdKB4DhSog&feature=related

HONDA CB400N : reliable, comfortable 2 up touring bike and.... plain boring and horrible...!
But also a good base for a nobudget parallel twin engined Caferacer: three valves per cylinder, 6 speed gearbox, electronic ignition system!


43.00 HP (31.4 kW) at 8500 RPM!!
Top Speed 161 km/h (100mph)
0-100 km/h 5.8 seconds
