2006 Honda Hornet 919 CB900F

Selling my gorgeous 919. I love this bike and am only selling to free up space in the garage and capital for a project car I am working on. Fires on first touch of the ignition without any choke. Runs like a top, very original with a few tasteful modifications. Garage kept and never seen rain in the two years I have owned it. Never been down.

VIN# JH2SC48016M400184


16,XXX miles, valves checked/serviced in 2017


Like new Michelin tires.


Good brake pads and fresh brake fluid.


Renthal bars (have stock bars) with new OEM grips, black mirrors and Rizoma bar ends that match the brake calipers. This greatly improved the ergonomics, comfort and look of the bike. I also spent considerable time adjusting/shimming the factory seat attachment so it does not slide/slop around like they do from the factory.


Honda Carbon Fiber Tank Pad from CBR1000RR


Muffler resonator delete. Sounds great, but definitely not loud or obnoxious.


Clean and clear title in hand. Located in Greenville, SC.


Asking $3,900 or best offer. This is one of the good ones, not cut-up or thrashed and abused. I also have an OEM center stand that can be negotiated if the buyer is interested.







***Admins, I have been a member and reader for a while, but do not post much. Previously purchased a center stand on this forum. If I need to do/change anything, please PM or email me.


Thanks,
Eddie

Formula, That makes sence. I did the baffelectomy on my 919, 15 years ago. It does sounds good. The 919 is one of the best sounding bikes ever, if you ask me.

Nice bike.

Nice pre disk brake CB350!
'71?
Love the colour.
Are those by chance Dunstall mufflers that have been put on?

Good luck with the sale of the 919.

Yes, 71' in rare Derby Green. That is my dad's. I thought the mufflers were stock, but I don't know for sure.

I'm pretty sure those mufflers are non stock, but they sure do look nice and surely will sound better than the stockers.
I can't remember which year was the last of the hotter cam, 70 or 71.
I think it was the previous tank style that ended with the hotter cam, but it may have been 71, as it was with the CB750.

By the way, that hot rod looks very interesting.
What's the scoop on that?

68, 69 and maybe 70 got the hotter cam and higher redline.

Hotrod is a 32' Vicky with a Desoto Hemi. Definitely different!

PRICE DROP! $3,750 obo
Really want this bike to go to a good home.

Definitely a unique build with that engine!
That was a crazy era of Chrysler family Hemis until the rationalized 392 at the end.
Before then, even the bore spacings were not common depending upon whether it was Dodge, DeSoto or Chrysler engine, let alone displacements, carbs, cams, etc.
Totally different castings for blocks and heads.
Mind boggling array of inherent inefficiencies from a manufacturing point of view, that looks even crazier considering how much war materials manufacturing Chrysler did for WW2.
