Question 78 honda CB400A

I wanted a Triumph for a long time, but I ended up getting a 1978 400cc Hondamatic (two speeds with torque converter -- no clutch)

I've had some bad problems with oil leaks, brake fluid leaks, exhaust leaks, fuel leaks. Now I have a bad problem with noise coming from the bearings in the rear wheel. I just replaced them and I may have done something wrong (I heard two clunk sounds as I was tightening the axle nut for the first time -- after bearing replacement)

The sohc4 forum might be a good place to seek input.

I won't stop riding because you tell me about someone who died in an accident, just as I won't stop eating because someone died of e.coli.
