Help! Just Bought 1978 Cb400 Hawk
I just bought a 1978 CB400 T Hawk for $700 yesterday. It has 20,000 miles and runs fine. According to the title, it looks as if only about 500 miles have been put on it since 1993. Little if anything has been done to the bike since it was in storage.
Surprisingly, it ran and I was able to drain the gas, replace it and drive it home (30 miles!). It ran fine. I plan on changing the oil, the filter, and cleaning the air filter today. I'm not that handy so what I can do to the bike is limited by my inexperience and confidence. I plan on brining it to a shop and having them see what it may need.
What I know it needs. It has a Windjammer Quicksilver fairing. Whoever installed it messed up the wiring a bit. Nothing major but the wires need to be jiggled for a second in order for the headlight to work. The horn does not work. All other electrical functions properly.
The kickstart does not engage. Not sure what's going on there, when I kick it there is no resistance.
The oil level seems fine and the color looks normal. Oh, and the gas tank looks okay, but maybe a touch of rust forming.
Basically, what should I expect needs to be done at a minimum?
Carbs cleaned, tune up, seals replaced? What's the standard cost of a tune up? Oh, and what NGK plugs are recommended, type of oil, and oil filter? I've downloaded a Clymer manual and it has some info.
This is my first bike, so any help/suggestions are greatly welcomed. Thanks in advance for any advice.
