General Comments:

This bike is a prime example of how well the 80's superbikes were manufactured. My bike was stripped to the frame and restored, the motor rebuilt with a top end performance & carb kit. The bike is an absolute joy to ride and still very quick by today's standards.

The bike has custom paint (non standard) and a small "stone" bikini fairing has been added. It just looks stunning in black with heaps of polished alloy.

I cannot fault this bike in any area, even knowing it is 25 years old! Thank you Mr. Honda.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

My experience exactly. Mine has done 80,000, and is strong, reliable, quick and easy starting. I also have an 81 model CB900F over 100,000, which is similarly strong and reliable. We all thank you Mr HONDA.
