That bike has a tail from an 82. Anybody knows that.
I had the first 900F around back in Feb of 81. I rode it to 3 different dealerships looking for a helmet. The guys that worked at the dealerships would come out and look at it. They'd never seen one before. The last 6 digits of the serial # were 000147. I had a poster of Freddie Spencer railing it thru a corner.
Thursty? Not mine. It did almost exacty on gas as the 919. It'd do 50 mpg if you took it real easy.
I rejetted the carbs. Back then a set of Accel coils was a must, mine wore a good ol Kerker exhaust. The original pipes are still hanging in my Mom's garage. Mine ran very good. Probably the reason I'm still convinced most carbed bikes benifit from a jet job.
I can't remember exactly what they weighed. Honda said something like 525 dry, so who knows? They weighed a ton compared to todays bikes. But it was soooo comfortable. I rode 1000 miles home from Colorado Springs one day, no sweat.
The local Honda dealer has a Red CB1000, like the black one^. I can ask how much, if anyone is real interested. I've seen it. It's very nice. He's had it for a while. Might be willing to deal.
