Old advertising literature seemed to point to the Honda CM400 being an homage to old brit bikes. In reality it was a cruiser-ish standard with a slightly curly stamped frame and an ok small parallel twin. They've become pretty popular for bobbers, and that's about it. I've seen some compelling builds on Do The Ton for these bikes though. Because very little is available over the counter to turn a CM into something it's not, owners have gotten creative.
This is one of the simpler ones(IE least cutting) and it's one of my favorites. I'll get more pics eventually, but it's a nice bike, good attention to detail, and looks a heck of a lot more like what the advertising literature promised.

"I drive an '81 Jetta with a Scirocco engine, Rabbit front fenders and multi-colored doors. There's a spiderweb fracture in the driver's side windshield, and a dented bumper sticker that says 'praised are the lowered'"
lately, why is everything "cool" only come in "cafe"
this is "cool" to me
450 kit converting dirtbike to a full gp chasis
Pretty cool, but ridiculously expensive and still far from "full gp chassis", all the kit includes is suspension, brakes, wheels and fairings. You keep your stock engine, cooling system, electrical system, frame, etc.
For the same kind of money of the kit + dirt bike you can build a 600SS that will spank the 450.
