CB Super4 refurb

picked this up from a member here a while back for the old man. its been slow going tbh but we're getting there now.








thats the old man taking a break after ripping the bike apart and not labeling any parts


he wanted white and blue but i could only get red. i think reds better paint isn't finished yet









got the seat recovered, new forkseals and oil, new tyres, new c&s, service kit, new pads, 2nd hand full exhaust from 2strokey, new throttle cable

will be getting new mirrors, a new headlight and new indos.

have 2nd hand clocks from a diff model that i cant wait to try to wire in

he hasn't even got his licence yet and he's already planning his trip to the brother in Wales

As i said, he took the bike apart and noe doesn't know which spacer goes where on the rear wheel

Re: CB Super4 refurb

I like the new spray job,

If spacers are like the 1000, larger on on the sprocket side, but when fitting them up, it should be oblivious as on my the OD (outter diameter), is different for each spacer.

Re: CB Super4 refurb

went at it today. realized that the 2 spacers were actually spares from the swing arm forgot all about them.


realizing now that a haynes manual or workshop manual would move things along a lot quicker. haynes dont make a manual for the bike though

just trying to remember how all the pipes and breathers and cables run is a job in itself

are the clocks the right ones for your model. the ones i got aren't the correct ones for my model. if mine are right for yours and vice versa maybe we could swap

got the fork seals done in city spares, think i paid about 60/80 all in - it was a good few months ago.

to get the carbs out remove the bolts holding the airbox to the frame, them loosen the 4 screws on the pipes going on to the carbs from the airbox. pull the airbox back(only moves a couple of inches) then loosen the screws on the other side of the carbs and the throttle and clutch cables and a couple of pipes and out she comes

Re: CB Super4 refurb

did a bit more today







sat the tank and seat on just to see what it'll look like





the paint scheme is going to change due to the old man making a gee of a simple task i asked of him.

So, any suggestions? the colours are staying the same, red and white, but the layout is changing. it needs to be simple cos i'm not very good at painting



went at fitting the new throttle cable and switch pack and throttle grip. the whole throttle grip and switch are not secure and spins freely am i missing something?







i know theres a locating pin in the switch pack to go into the handle bar but is that all that secures everything??

Re: CB Super4 refurb

Yeah, thats all that secures the swithces. What you could do is make a bracket that goes from one of the bolts holding the switches together to brake lever bolt. Wont be visable & will help hold it all together.

Paint wise, if keepin the same colour, Id keep what ye got. Otherwise its gona look like any white & red CB, well unless you do flames
