Like late-1970s stock Hondas? Here’s a beautiful 1978 Honda CB400 with less than 7,000 miles for sale in Maryland for $2,999.
Despite that I own this exact bike in black, I wouldn’t buy this one. I paid $650 for my all-stock 1978 Honda CB400. My bike wasn’t as perfect as this one, but this isn’t a bike I’d want to keep stock. I chopped up the fenders, new handlebars, gauges, etc, but that’s my plan with all vintage bikes.
If you’re looking for a mint condition Honda CB400, this might be perfect for you.
In Fairfax, Virginia, this 1972 Honda CB450 is for sale for $3,000.
Here’s why I wouldn’t buy this bike CB450 – it’s too expensive. If however, you’re looking for a stock 1972 Honda CB450 with some upgrades, this might be a great bike for you.
But if you’re like me, and you like chopping up these old bikes. I’m not going to chop one up that looks this nice.
The seller looks like they’ve done some good work on the electrical on this bike. The electrical on these early 1970s Honda’s can be a nightmare. There’s also a custom seat and new suspension.
If I had an extra $1,300 lying around, I’d still not buy this 1967 Honda CT90 for sale in Herndon, Virginia.
I grew up when these things were pretty common and worth a couple hundred bucks. To spend $1,300 on one that isn’t in mint condition is crazy. Even if it were in mint condition, I’d still not pay $1,300 for it, but to each her own.
Check out this 1978 Yamaha SR500 for sale in Rockville, Maryland.
It looks pretty good, but it’s a bit raggedy for the $5,000 price tag, but I’m cheap.
It looks OK. As for customizations, this is mostly stock, but it does have a custom seat and new mirrors and handlebars.
It has no turn signals and appears to be running without a battery, so it’s a kicker. If it runs good, it’s probably worth $2,500.
I paid $650 for mine, but it was totally stock and I was living in Vermont at the time.
