The completed job.

I must have made the bike more appealing because somebody attempted to steal it. Look there's the ignition barrel completely busted open. Good job the bike is currently not functioning, the fact that the bike didn't work at the time of the theft was a blessing in disguise.
Honda cb400 four 1977 custom cafe cb 400 f 400f gold leaf bare metal raw tank

New paint job quickie

I got the tank back to bare metal, laquered it, then did gold leaf and enamel paint on it. that includes the sidepannels.

This one is from the Photostream of flickr user mcwont aka Jeff McCann, custom motorcycle artist extrordinaire. The text reads "Harmon girder forks, Santee weld on hartail (to the raked swingarm frame) Paughco Mustang tank and homemade seat pans upholstered by the local hotrod shop. This former CHP auction bike also features Hallcraft 5 spoke welded steel wheels. These predated the billet wheel craze by a decade."
