The successor to the both the CB360 twin and the CB400F four, the CB400T twin was known in England as the Dream and in America as the Hawk – one of Honda’s slogans here was: “Fly the Hawk – motorcycling will never be the same.”
It debuted in the US in 1978 with three model variants, two of which were pared down by 1980. The ’80 model had 30mm Keihin CV carbs to comply with stricter smog emission requirements, and it was electric start only.
The 395cc air-cooled engine featured a 360-degree crank, a trait which was more commonnly associated with British parallel twins of the time. The engine produced 43 horsepower, enough for a claimed top speed of 110 miles per hour as the Hawk weighed just 380 pounds dry.
This example is VIN: NC032008225.
The owner acquired it from a Triumph dealership in Cleveland, Ohio and has covered roughly 300 miles. The odometer shows 1,182 miles.
“This Honda twin was purchased by a customer of mine as a simpler, downsized motorcycle to replace his previous bike. The bike was serviced this year, including carb remove/inspection, clean/synchronization, valve inspection, oil change and more. This Honda is ALL original with a clean tank interior, original tires with no dry rot and no corrosion or significant paint fade.”
Per the seller, “this motorcycle is completely stock” and ther are no known mechanical issues. “I have put approx. 10 miles on the bike to verify function of controls, gearbox/clutch, suspension, etc.” W
The seller notes “some aging/discoloration on pipes/engine covers” as well as “a staple shaped, approx. 1.25″ tear on left seat cover side.”
“We are selling on behalf of the owner because he replaced it with a CB1100.” Currently located in Valley City, Ohio, this Honda is offered on a clean Ohio title.
