Default cbr400 meets 893 blade? (ebay)

so, i was perusing ebay (as you do) and i came across this little beast, it's something which has been discussed and attempted by the looks of things but mostly the projects seem to have been binned due to (understandable) clearance issues.

so here it is, the ultimate sleeper? haha would love a blast on it like, the 400's are known to run with much bigger machines through the corners, i'm curious as to the weight difference between the lumps in respect to the effect on the handling and its p/w ratio but either way what a fun bike!

bit pricey but have a look P=

anyone else seen any crazy sleepers like this?

It is a nice little sleeper but hopefully the chain and sprockets have been upgraded or snapping chains would be a breeze.

Wow, I see a few of these riding in London every once in a while. The sound of the exhaust never fails to please. There's something very special about the sound of a 400 4.
That's bloody expensive though, especially for Yorkshire dealer, where prices of vehicles are typically lower than other parts of the UK. Must be going through an antique dealer.

Cheers for the heads up Iam.

I'm guessing - "Weelie machine?"
