Hoada super 4 clean up

#1 PostAuthor: kev edwards » Fri Apr 02, 2021 7:09 am

Thought i would give my little Project Big One a freshen up as the frame was so rusty. so stripped, frame and motor cleaned, frame blasted and powder coated and motor back in in the last two weeks, most bolts on engine replaced with stainless as originals are really scabby and front motor mount bolts replaced with stainless also.

Nice. Given the current popularity of Retro's I'm surprised Hodna haven't done a modern version of the original 400/4 given it's popularity then and now.

Can honestly say i was never enamoured by the 400/4, to me it always looked unbalanced and that tank was an after thought, now the 350/4 was the bike that looked a whole lot better.

I fired her up Saturday, and it pissed petrol out of the bowl to body joints and the fuel tees, i had not stripped the carbs, so off with them, o rings replace on tees, got to wait for the bowl seals, originals dried and cracked, schoolboy error really, bowls also not flat on mating faces so i filed off the locating lugs on them as they are not needed and used a level surface with 240 grade wet and dry sheet on top until surfaces all flat, roll on the bowl seals.
