About 25 years ago I was trying to relive my youth and on the hunt for a 60’s Triumph Bonneville 650. Found the bike I wanted and the owner started it and I thought I’m going home with this bike. I got on the bike and couldn’t kick start it to save my life. After a few tries I reluctantly took a pass. About a week later I’m driving to work and see this yellow bike for sale in a homeowners yard. It had electric start and it was about $1500 cheaper than the Triumph. I bought it from the original owner with all the books and tools. It’s a 1977 Honda CB 400F. Currently it has 17,000 miles and never been restored. I ride it only a few times a year. It leaks a little gas at first but then goes away and it still runs beautifully without ever touching the carbs in all these years. I’m sure it’s worth many times more than what I paid but I just can’t sell it because I’ll never have another Motorcycle.
