    previously owned by Dan in Christchurch. Whilst the frame number is low, I
    cannot confirm it as one of the 5 units GSX1100T produced for the 1980
    Castrol 6-Hour. The frame number

I am a bit of a fan of old school 400s and 250cc two strokes and often troll trademe and other online spots to see whats for sale out of curiosity (I am one of those people that watch auctions and don't bid often haha). While I was hunting a month of so back I came across a Honda CBR400RRN NC29 and the first thing that entered my head was the fun I had riding one at the dealership years ...
