How much would a 25-30 years old CB400 cost?!

Gordon, the bike you are talking about is mostly the cb400N, parallel twin engine. Someone i know was quoting 70k for his 84 model, this was a couple of years back.

The yellow looks nice in the pictures, much better than the usual blue and black cb400s i've seen, and thats a nice looking helmet you got yourself, goes well with the bike.
One thing, what end can is that, the finsh looks nice, but the missing logo has me very confused.
Incase thats not the OE or a direct fit aftermarket can, try looking for one, the OE can too sounds nice once opened up.

Very recently i rode a motorcycle with some local end can & (hopefully) OE headers and the bike had absoluelty no lowend or high end power, two years ago it was on OE headers and a an aftermarket end can, and it was quick inspite of the engine issues it had then which i believe are not sorted out till date.

Per the prvious owner it's an AKRAPOVIC. But the bike sounds really throaty, the bike HOWLS at speeds above 90kmph. Getting the cam chain changed on this bike, there's a dead spot in initial pick up which is negligible, but i can't live with it.

If i read that correctly, you are getting the cam chain changed to cure a flat spot?
This is probably due to the exhaust. The carbs have not been adjusted to deal with the new can.

I actually had that checked out, & no that's not the prob. Not all after-market can's require the carbs to be re-jetted, unless the manufacturer states so. The bike has been running on the same can for quite some time, the dead spot in pick up & other gears kicks in unannounced. The bikes happy as long as you touching 90+speeds, starts farting only at speeds below that. I touched 140kmph last Sunday & the ride became better with the engine warming up :o). The other thing is I trust Sherry who's been repairing bikes for ages now.

U bet it's a smooth fiber glass finish. Am looking at getting the spares in the bike within the next 2 weeks, provided I get my order from UK on time. A bit skeptical riding with you heavy weights, all 600 & 1000's in the group i guess , my cell 9860912711
