Carbs cleaned, and they certainly needed it. The picture below doesn't do it justice, the jets were filthy and gummed up and float bowl needles sticking.

All clean now, but the buggers still not starting. plugs are getting wet with fuel now, but the battery might be a bit weak and feeble. ordered new plugs and battery.

Project CB-1 to cafe racer!

This is my first blog. This will be about me trying to turn a Honda CB400 CB-1 into something a bit different than Honda intended! I will be first trying to get the thing started, then sorting the mechanicals out.
Once thats done then I will be shortening the back end into a single seat, removing as much metal as I can and giving the tank a polished bare metal look.

This is the bike when I picked it up.
