1983 Honda CB1000 Custom
A fully enjoyable motorcycle to ride with beautiful lines
Charging system, tricky to troubleshoot.
Dropped rear brake caliper.
A small amount of oil burning, comes and goes.
Had to replace speedo and tach.
Love the bike, lots of power, unique high/low 5 speed transmission, bulletproof shaft drive is very smooth.
This bike is great for long distance runs as it rides very smooth, gets good gas mileage and has plenty of high speed capability.
The main reason that I don't part with it is her looks; just a beautiful example of an old school Honda.
Spare parts should be stockpiled though; they're getting harder and harder to find and are not cheap.
In closing I must say that I own big twin Harleys and have always preferred them hands down; I won't say why, you just have to ride em!
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know
