    Another pic I took yesterday. I need to see if I can get the vin so I know for sure, that will help give me some idea of what to offer to try and get the guy to sell it.

    I saw a bunch of them when I lived in Rochester, but in thinking about it now, they may have all been Canadian imports since we were only 45 min from the border. I had a black 1982 cb450T, It was a nice bike.

    Got a closer look at the guy's CB today. The fairing blocked me from seeing the vin# but I was able to see that the sticker say's its a 1980 CB400T. Not sure if this would be a bike worth chasing after or move on and find something else for the wife.

    Is this to learn to ride on for the very first time, is she athletic, does she like it.
    That's pretty much the criteria, that particular model is too big for a non athletic rider if she doesn't like the colour of it.

    She likes that it looks like a smaller version of mine. She knows how to ride, but has never spent a lot of time riding. Personally I started out with older bikes I had to tinker on and I think thats the best way to start. But likely any bike I buy her, I will be maintaining

    If there is anything lacking compared to a modern bike it will mediocre brakes and limited tire options. If she likes it thats' what matters the most, should maybe have her test ride anything you can at local dealerships. Is a good experience and gives you something to compare to, might even confirm that is the right bike.



    here is how i would be looking at it; I ride the bikes I ride because I'm an enthusiast. For my wife, I would want the safest easiest nice handling bike she could possibly ride that can easy keep with the pace of local traffic.

    + you realize how stressful it is watching your wife ride yes
