***SOLD***: 2002 HONDA CB 919

Exceptionally good runner--Few cosmetic issues but functionally perfect. Odometer: 12,171 miles. Any / all mechanical issues have been addressed & corrected. New Pirelli tires front~(Conti III ) & rear~ (Diablo supercorsa), flushed brakes, flushed coolant, fuel tank cleaned & treated, new gold chain, all hoses & cables checked, brake pedal replaced, signals checked & working properly, replaced bar end weight. All maintenance documentation is available for review.

This bike’s never been involved in an accident, it‘s dependable, & I hold a clear title. This bike was technically an "orphaned" bike for 3 years & the prior owner was heading overseas. My intention was to get her back up & running, and the outcome has been quite impressive. We are downsizing for retirement, & have to get down to 1 bike. Asking $3,000.00/neg. PM me for my phone number.

Sweet ride! BTW, you forgot to mention the year. That matters to those that want the adjustable forks and other upgrades.

A few simple pictures or words do little to explain what had to be done to this bike to get her going again.
- New tires fore and aft.
- Brake fluid, pads, and lines all new (fore and aft).
- Total coolant flush with new hoses, clamps, and new thermostat.
- Fuel pump replaced and new fuel lines installed.
- Injectors removed, cleaned, and re-calibrated.
- New battery.
- Tank cleaned (inside of course).
Very interesting story regarding how I came about this bike, the god forsaken shape it was in, and the challenge a mechanical novice set out to fix. Some of the blemishes I could have fixed but left them as is to remind me where the bike was and how far it came. I have tralier queens in my garage and decided this was not going to become one. Besides, in order to fix the cosmetic issues it would have exceeded the worth of the bike so that was a no brainer.

I would like a potential buyer to know that the work was performed by the best local mechanics in pensacola. They are employed at the triumph/ducati dealership. This dealership was chosen to support the triumph supersport racing team. Robert (Dink) Mcclendon owns the shop. Him and his crew build the bikes and motors for the triumph race team. I take all my bikes to them. When I picked the 919 up Dink told me that I would be impressed with how the bike turned out. I was. I've put 2,000 miles on her and its time to let her go.

Nice bike. Glws. I'm just wondering why the bar end, brake pedal and the side cover are/was damaged if it's never been down tho.

Didn't say it was never down. It said it was never in an accident. Hope that helps?

The prior owner left this bike outside about a half mile from the gulf coast. It was never covered and, according to him, the wind would blow it over. Yes, it was never in an accident but I must say it fell over a few times and there is evidence of that. I've done my best to clean and shine this bike up. Flat black paint is tough to shine. There is rust on a few bolts here and there. These could be easily replaced but I've spent all I'm going to spend. It wasn't my intention to create a show bike. My intention was to be able to ride this bike anywhere without fear of mechanical failure. In that regard a think its a huge success. These honda in-line fours are amazing engines.

I get your point. The wind did blow this bike over on its side a few times. I'm not sure how to categorize that. Neglect maybe but not an accident. The prior owner or myself did not personally drop or fall off the bike for any reason that I'm aware of. Some degree of trust in the prior owner is required. Of course, some degree of trust in the current owner is required too.

I'm glad you're getting some humor out this. Personally, I've never had one of my bikes blown over by the wind. I'd have trouble believing it too but I'm going strictly by what the original owner told me. Line of crap? Maybe, but he was my boss. What are you gonna do?

I'm trying to sell this bike and not cause anyone to keel over dead from laughter.
