1980 Honda CBX 1000 - Fully Restored
1980 Honda CBX in excellent condition. This bike went through a full restoration about 7 years ago. New paint, new tires, new Kirker exhaust system and polishing of engine cases and other alloy parts. The bike other than the exhaust is essentially in original condition. There is a front fork Super Brace to reduce front end flex.
The Honda CBX was an engineering marvel. This was Honda's first (and only) inline air cooled 6 cylinder engine with an output of 1047 cc's. What a sight to look at that bank of 6 carburetors and the wide cylinder bank. Those 6 exhaust pipes exiting forward from the engine are hard to miss. The Kirker exhaust system is beautiful and functional. It is not excessively loud. It has an intoxicating sound as the throttle is twisted. This 6 cylinder engine is only about 4 inches wider than Honda's infamous CB750 engine from the late 60's. Each cylinder is a 4 valve configuration. Twenty-four valves! Two intake valves and two exhaust valves for each cylinder. 24 valves for better performance driven by double overhead cams.
The Honda CBX was produced just 4 years from 1979 through 1982. The first two years (1979 & 1980) the CBX had the "naked" standard upright look. In the last two years (1981 & 1982) Honda added a full front fairing and factory saddle bags. Unfortunately these extra components added about 80 lbs.
I have personally owned a 1980 and 1982 CBX and find the "naked" 1979/1980 models more enjoyable to ride than the later 1981/1982 CBX's.
This particular 1980 Honda CBX was owned by a close friend and avid motorcycle enthusiast. He passed 6 years ago and his son acquired his entire collection of stunning motorcycles (many of them restored vintage bikes). Time has come to part with this very special Honda CBX.
The next owner of this motorcycle will likely also be an avid motorcycle enthusiast looking for a very special and unusual ride. Honda has always set a standard in reliable and user friendly motorcycles that other manufacturers have struggled to compete against. If you are looking for your only bike and want something different, this CBX is worth consideration. If you have other motorcycles, add this one to your stable and enjoy a very exciting and stunningly beautiful machine.
There are only 14,385 miles on this great machine. The factory tool kit and owner's manual are included.
Own and enjoy a piece of motorcycling history. This bike will turn heads wherever you go. You will be one a selected few motorcyclists that own and ride Honda's stunning CBX.
