1983 Honda CB1000 Custom from Canada
Awesome bike, original owner, now own 2
I've had cam chain issues with this bike, some other minor issues after 24 years, not bad at all. I own 2.
Beside the cam chains, which I've addressed with Honda in 1984, there were some valve issues that they told me about... need to use high octane gas.
Hard to find OEM exhaust now as corrosion takes a toll.
Driven lots of bikes... dual tranny, lots of low end torque, high gear RPM's nice and low, can take a little while to wind her out, but hang on tight, a sleeper.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know

If your CB1000C "ran out of steam at 70mph", then something was wrong with it. Mine is JUST STARTING to get her steam up in 5 high around 90 - and she just keeps pulling strong as an ox. I run out of balls long before the CB1kC comes close to running out of oomph.
