Here’s a custom 1974 Honda CB750 for sale in Rockville, Maryland. The seller is asking $12,000.

It has some nice mods, like a custom 4-into-1 exhaust, gas tank and seat. It looks pretty cool, but I’d have a hard time coughing up $12,000 for it. There’s no mention of any engine work and the triangle wasn’t opened up. Also, I don’t think the tailpiece and the tank match aesthetically, they look like parts from different motorcycles. I’d not consider more than $6,000 for it, but I’m cheap.

For Sale: 1978 Honda CB400A (Warrenton, Virginia) $2,800

I don’t know, man. Check out this 1978 Honda CB400A for sale on Craiglist in Warrenton, Virginia.

The seller is asking $2,800 for it, which is crazy to me. I have this bike, but the non-automatic one. Now granted I have to shift mine the old fashioned way, but I paid $650 for it. This one has some upgrades, like a custom exhaust, shocks and the foot pegs were moved. It has a new seat, but to me it’s hideous, I like my stock seat better.

And maybe I’m just an idiot, but the seller says these automagical CB400s are highly sought after, I can’t imagine by who. Why would anyone want an automatic motorcycle? But what do I know?

I put Mikunis on mine and tweaked the sprocket ratio to give me more pop off the line, but these bikes are not fast. They have a short wheel base and ride pretty rough. I’m short, so it fits me OK, but I often wish I had a bigger bike. I just need to finish my XS750 I have tore apart in my garage.

Whoa, check out this bad ass little 1979 Sachs Prima G3 for sale in Takoma Park, Maryland.

It’s got a new motor and has been completely refurbished, said the seller.

If I had an extra $1,200 and was in the market for a small knock around scoot, I’d jump on this one before it’s gone. It’s rare.
