1979 Honda CBX

You gotta love the internet.

My friend is restoring a 1979 Honda CBX "six pack" The original petcock assembly was totally rotted out, unable to be rebuilt. I began a search which lead me to cyclepartswarehouse.com After a couple of emails they assured me a OEM Honda petcock was still availible. Not too shabby considering this Honda model had a short lived life. I believe the last production year was 1981. Long story short, a new assembly was delivered yesterday.

Prices are also good. I was quoted $20 more from another site.

The parts show up on their catalog, but I've had that happen at other places too. I'll email them.

Thanks.

I have a friend that has 3, yes THREE, CBX's. I think only one is currently rideable, but they still make great conversation pieces. Fascinating guy, used to be a factory test driver for Porsche in the 60's, also raced at LeMans and Daytona, and actually won the 1972 Cannonball run in a Cadillac Coupe de Ville!

Nothing sweeter than then hearing the ol' six pack with a 6 into 1 exhaust.

Wonder what that sounds like???

Those little top chrome covers for the carb are impossible to find!

I got a quick reply to my email, which was nice.
No luck on the parts, though.

It has been my experience, NOS Honda parts seem to be much easier to obtain then Yamaha, Kawi, and Suzuki.
