The 1975 variant of Honda’s CB400F Super Sport range comes equipped with a four-stroke SOHC inline-four powerplant, which packs a displacement of 408cc and four Mikuni carbs with 20 mm (0.8 inches) throttle bodies. The air-cooled mill is good for up to 37 ponies at around 8,500 spins per minute, along with 24 pound-feet (32.5 Nm) of twist when the tachometer displays 7,500 rpm.

The force is handed over to a six-speed gearbox that’s connected to the rear 18-inch wheel through a chain final drive. Ultimately, this whole ordeal translates to a modest top speed of 103 mph (165 kph). Stopping power is summoned by a single hydraulic brake disc at the front and a drum module on the other end.

Up front, the bike is supported by a pair of telescopic forks, while rear suspension duties are taken good care of by dual adjustable shocks and a double-sided swingarm. I’ll tell you what; let’s skip the other technical details and get straight to the point. If you’re a fan of Japanese motorcycles and think that a ‘75 CB400F might suit your needs, we’re about to make your day.

Browsing the list of live auctions on Bring a Trailer will reveal that one such entity is currently up for grabs with a little over 11,000 miles (17,700 km) on its odometer. Earlier this year, the machine was blessed with rebuilt carburetors and a fresh petcock and a modern battery, as well as fresh fluids, an overhauled brake master cylinder, and a refurbished caliper.

To ensure ample grip on the tarmac, the wheels have been enveloped in premium IRC rubber on both ends. As of the time of writing, the highest bid for the old-school marvel is placed at 5,000 bucks. Should you be looking to submit yours, we’ll have you know the auctioning period will come to an end on Tuesday, June 22.
