Honda CBX1000 for sale;

1980; UK Supplied machine; stacks of old MOT's going back to 1995 which suggest that the recorded mileage of 22,000 MAY well be correct; apparently it was one of two that were fully professionally restored to a very high standard for the owner of a large Motorcycle Dealer around 12 years ago and is still in extremely lovely order throughout although it does smoke a bit on initial start which clears pretty much immediately it is ridden suggesting that the valve stem seals have gone bad which I gather is a fairly common problem on these machines, it is priced accordingly; otherwise really excellent mechanically; these are in my opinion a very impressive machine to ride even today with that fabulous turbine smooth engine and this one certainly doesn't disapoint;                                 SOLD
