For sale 1979 honda cbx - 1000i am the 2nd person to have taken on this restoration. The 1st person i purchased the bike from 3 years ago did a remarkable job, however, he just ran out of money to finish it. I am offering this up for sale, for the right price. I challenge anyone to build one as fine as this example, not to say it cannot be done but it is going to be a process, not to mention how difficult getting nos parts are becoming, as well as the insane costs, plus so many parts are now nla, not to mention the time and labor invested into a project such as this bike. I cannot think of anything else at this time that either needs replacing or needs attention. I am happy to say i am finally done. It has just undergone a brand new paint job, complete top to bottom absolutely everything done, i mean everything. Every seal, bearing, dust cover, engine internals, engine externals, please see below what has been done to this bike. While i was able to get receipts for most of the 1st part of the restoration, i know there are receipts that i did not receive. I know i am leaving a lot of things out that have been either updated or replaced. I have tried very hard to ensure everything on this bike is genuine honda or nos, even the dang zerk fitting is genuine honda nos. This bike only has 150. 1 miles on the clocks since the engine rebuild. I only use this bike for my coffee shop runs once a month, i do start the bike up every 30 days thru the winter, and it also resides in a heated garage with my other bikes. There are (2) items which are not original per my doing. (1) is the pipes, i had dumb luck and had the good fortune to be able to acquire a set of 6 into 6 pipes from pipe masters, these pipes are so rare they only import a dozen or less every year into the usa, and the cost alone is $2495. 00 plus freight from australia. They look amazing, they sound amazing, and at my rate of riding i will never get to hear these pipes at full song. (2) i had the alternator replaced by tim's with a alternator conversion which eliminates the brushes, clutches, regulator, and rectifier, no more crappy electricals’, it even charges at idle, total reliability. I also have the original alternator and rectifier which will be sold with the bike. The bike comes with the original owner’s manual, the original tool kit, and the original owner’s identification card. Like i said there have been so many items upgraded, replaced, rebuilt i know the list below does not even begin to cover all the things done. If the bike does not sell, it will be an honor to be its caretaker until i am gone. The bike is sold as is, there is no warranty. 1979 honda cbx - 1000150. 1 miles1979 original honda cbx - 1000 service manual all in plastic sleeves1979 original owners identification cardair box polished - buffed out thru - carl's hondaall brackets - fasteners - misc.
