If it was pure stock in the condition it appears to be, it would be worth every penny.
But not with those aftermarket pipes on it.

I've heard someone say the motor is nice / got character / is a peach, but the rest is horrendous.

I had a 1980 with 6 into 1 exhaust and a 1982 with Kerker 6 into 2 pipes. I loved both of them , but they are a little boring with the stock exhaust. The D&D 6 into 1 was mad, frantic and sounded like a serious formula one car. The Kerkers...not so hot, but better than stock. I always wanted the 6 into 6 ,but very expensive. If I had a spare 6500 bucks I'd jump all over this one. Danged economy.

Much of the rest is not up to the peachy motor.


I would love that bike with true 6 into 6's. The sound would get everyone within earshot drunk!

I had a '79, raced the Castrol 6 hr. finished in tenth. Toured the North Island with gfriend toured the south island w/gfriend, then toured the North Island again, you guessed it, w/gfriend, then sold it for more than I paid for it, (bought it wrecked from an insurance co.)
It never let me down, it never failed to please and excite!
It was the only CBX to finish a Castrol 6 hr! I had shimmed the gearbox to allow for better shifts. It has no rev limiter so a missed shift is disastrous under racing conditions.

A good price if it is indeed that clean. Beaut engines but puppies in the HP department compared to modern bikes. Sound awesome.

Usual 70's/80's bendy frame and sorry brakes. There were a few aftermarket frame makers sorting these out - Egil springs to mind (red below) - blue one isa Moto Martin.

Egils frames used a single large diameter backbone to hang everything off - in a similar manner as the 919, but more exotic looking!

It is a shame that Honda has not revisited the IL6 layout as a flagship bike. Mind you it looks like the V4 is destined for that in the near future.

DAT BIG BORE. SERIOUSLY. WTF AMIRITE?


As far as frame/running gear, the Spondon Engineering frame kits do a lot to bring it up to spec.
If that's your thing. Personally, I'd keep it looking bone stock, do a 1425 big bore, throw an insane exhaust on it, and surprise some modern bikes at streetlights.

CBXs are my guilty pleasure. I'd buy one in a heartbeat, without a second thought, if I had the money.





If memory serves, this guy lives in Omaha. I've never seen that bike on the street, though. I'd probably fall off my own bike if I did.

Honda claims the engine is only 2 inches wider than that CB750 it.

A friend of mine had a '79 CBX super sport. Rode so smooth. He was running 2-3 into one pipes with dual supertrapps on it. I wish I had a sound clip because it sound amazing!

When they came out they were considered huge. Now days next to some of the road trains we call large motorcycles they are positively small!
