I am selling a 1975 Honda CB400F Super Sport motorcycle. This bike is in very nice original shape. I purchased the bike several months ago from a guy who had it running this summer. I never heard it run but believe that it will be road worthy with minimal effort. The bike has 18,000 original miles and includes the keys for the ignition and seat lock. The paint on the tank and side covers is very good as is the chrome on the wheels, fenders and handlebars. The tires seem to be in good shape as they have great tread and have held air for the duration of my ownership. The seat vinyl is free of rips and tears and the exhaust pipes are complete and free of rust. The muffler is whole and in decent condition, suffering from a small amount of rot at the tip. Overall, this is a fine original four cylinder bike that could be a great riding motorcycle with some time. Please feel free to email me with questions. Thanks!

What a cute little bike...it's the twin of mine, minus the rust and duct tape and leaky gaskets. I'll have mine back on the road in time for spring thaw, maybe even fit the guzzi cafe seat on it, since I'm not using it much.

Then I'll have to ride twice as much, just to be fair to both of them.

I hope one of you can grab it- good luck!

Being that its a New Hampshire bike they probably don't have a title for it...they can however request a title from the state of NH for a small fee. I forget what the years of eligibility for titles are, it was something like new bikes need a title until they're 15 years old, then no title availability until they're 20 or 25.... I do remember that its a real transferable title, and the fee was less than the $75 we pay.

you don't have to have a title as long as you get a bill of sale and a current NH registration.  You can take both of those to MA dmv and get a MA title as long as you pay all of their fees...

The key word is "current NH registration" A reg from 1983 will do you no good unless the owner goes and pays 20 some odd years worth of taxes, and gets a fresh registration. BTDT.

   Well, I found the bike to be in my opinion misrepresented. It was obviously stored in a damp location for some time. Inside of the gas tank was nasty, #1 head pipe had an ugly 1" split on the bottom, the seat pan was practically non-existent, kick starter moved but it felt like only it was moving and not anything else etc., etc., etc....It was a total frame off restoration project to my eye and not what i was looking for. Especially for $800 and the fact that the owner really knew very little about the bike or knew more than he was letting on. He's leaving the country on Sat. so if you need a parts bike or a total restoration project drop him a line...not worth either as far as I'm concerned.

Sorry to hear it Mike. Just because the fish jumped your line don't mean you gotta give up fishing though!
All best,
