  To me the nicest of all the 400 rep,s the Suzuki GSXR 400 , had to travel a few miles to buy this one and it broke my mates heart trying to get it run properly but he did lol, Rode it sold it and made nought as per usual lol, not all about cash its about experiencing the thrill of each individual bike , Regards Ken

  Beautiful  little Honda VFR 400 Fitted with a very expensive Tyga body kit and a 1200 paint job , cost me a few pounds to tidy up  and it was a joy to ride and was a big crowd puller ,Sold it to a lad down south who to be honest made spurious claims about past owners lol , For once I got my money back and made a small profit ,  regards ken

Old3wheeler Ken it was great to see your bikes mate I have been into bikes since I was a kid as my dad was a part time mechanic for a couple of riders in the I.O.M. TT race days ;)  He and I would go over there each year even though I was only about 11yrs old back then but Dad was always into BSA's then and a couple of his mates rode Matchless and Triumph bikes.

His last bike before we left Belfast to come to Australia was a BSA Golden Flash 650 and that was his last ride so after we came here I took up the tradition for him with my first being a BSA Batam 125   then many more after that ;)

I'll try to find some photo's mate and post them here and hope many more riders join in thanks starting the thread look forward to more postings ;)

Cheers for now,
Rob  :D
Belfast born and shall love it till my last day :)

Beautiful!

Did you restore it or was it looked after and kept in that new condition?

Hi John, Good to see the download works first time I've tried it since Tinypics stopped.
It has only been given a cosmetic facelift since I got it about 10 years ago paint touchup and of coarse a tank and side panel respray and decals, new wiring harness and some charging problems fixed, it will get a full stripdown and rebuild in a couple of years.
Rare model now the first of the 400's 1976 and a two stroke, just love this little bike reminds me of my youth.
