Dear Bikers from Lahore,
I am looking for old school bike with retro street bike kinda look. I am certain that I want only Honda, although there is no specific reason, but still I feel compelled to go for Honda only. Few months back I was looking for Roadmaster 200cc but now I think a bit more power won't be a bad option. I also checked out a couple of 750s and 650s but frankly they are quite big. So I guess Honda CB400 would be an ideal option considering that I want to use this bike everyday. So all the veteran bikers are invited to give their valuable input about:
a. Can Honda CB400 be considered as a good bike for everyday use and long distance cruises ? Are their any reliability issues or any issues, for that matter, that a novice like myself must consider ??
b. How much would it cost to buy a good, running condition, reliable Honda CB 400 and from where I can find such a bike ?
c. Is it easy to maintain such a bike ? What is the availability of parts and proper mechanic to carry out routine maintenance of such a bike?
d. If I get an old bike in scrap / auction condition, would be possible to restore it ? How much would it cost, roughly ? And from where I can get a bike in this condition ?
e. If you guys think that Honda CB400 is not a suitable option then please do suggest any other appropriate Bike.
Pardon my ignorance on the subject, your valuable input would mean a lot.
