New Ritmo Sereno FPR tank was installed

My R80RT has been suffering from rust problem. Insufficient fuel flow sometimes stops engine while driving.
Stock steel tank has rust tank inside as 1987 year model. When R80RT delivered,shop advised me it could happen rust problem.
So I decided to replace it with Ritomo's FPR tank which has never get rust.
Slash tank is flat side and has rubber pads. The twin lines are quite same as stock tank which drew by hands. Excellent! I am satisfied with it.

Have you seen CB400 in your country? It is called CB400 super four in JAPAN.
You will not see them except for Australia. Honda was exporting CB400 to Australia as a entry model.
HONDA has been selling many CB400 super four to Japanese market.
So many used CB400 is found,we can get used CB400 super four with reasonable price.
I am very interested in this model as a cafe racer base.
Above two photos are CB400SF is not cafe racer,but it is cool! I like it!

Kawasaki 250TR thumper

Have you seen Kawasaki 250TR Thumper in your country?
It had assembled Fuel Injection several years ago.
So,if your local dealer thought to import 250TR,
it will pass air-pollution regulation of your country.
Displacement 250cc is for entry model
but its engine shape is beautiful as a custom base.
250TR's engine is from Kawaseki Estrella.

I won 2001 SR400 on Yahoo Auction

When I saw SR400s on Yahoo Auction,I found a SR400 street tracker. It is almost my ideal SR.
It is changed to steel fenders,tracker handle bar and small speedometer.
What is best,it is stock black tank with white twin lines like classic BMW.

Starting price and buy now price was cheep,I bid without intent.
When auction ended,I was higher bidder of 41,000yen. How lucky I am! Suprising!

If I received it,I will change to short rear suspension.
But I have no idea what I should do next on this SR400.
