HONDA CB400SuperFour 1992

HONDA CB400SuperFour is reasonable at used bikes market.
Because large number of CB400SuperFour had been sold.
Its capacity and durability are good enough for entry riders.
Body size is not as big as CB1100SF and CB1300SF.

Why not do you buy used CB400SuperFour and paint it like above?
You do not need to change muffler and suspension.
Just paint it!

BMW R100 + Motoco seat

Motoco brand is my favorite.
I think Motoco seat best of all aftermarket BMW seat.

When I were young,I thought that seat was BMW genuine part. 
Because it is well designed like genuine.
What is like genuine? The edge of lower line has flare surrounding seat. 
Motoco seat fits well the big fuel tank shape.
How do you think ?

BMW vs Kawasaki Street fighter

When I went to Ramen restaurant,three motorcycles parked.
left R1200R is light weight and easy to control.
Right Kawasaki is cool street fighter.

I watched those two bikes and especially seat.
Kawasaki's seat more narrow than BMW
so it must be good to non tall guys like me.  

Lower seat is better to me and non tall guy.  
It is serious issue.

SR400 green

Is this modern street tracker?
If I were this bike owner,I would like to go with cafe racer looks with lower suspension.

I would like to get HawkGT someday,
which V-twin engine is famous in durability.
And I like HawkGT's simple looks.

By the way, 
Does anyone assemble HawkGT's fuel tank and seat onto VRF400R ?
Is it possible ?

Customize to PRESTO's look SR500

PRESTO is famous in high performance SR custom.
Their paint work is awesome.
When I make PRESTO look SR,it will cost a lot.
Firstly I have to change wheels,swing arm,front fork,brakes,muffler and on and on.
Changing to such parts cost 200,000yen or more
and paint cost 100,000yen or more.

I happened to find used SR400 at 188,000yen as shown above 3photos.
If I got extra budget,I will buy it.
But ...... not now.

PRSTO's blog is ;
