1983 Honda CB1000 Custom from United States of America
This bike is clearly a home wrecker
I just bought the bike with 16,000 +- miles on it, and haven't had much time to ride the bike yet.
I have noticed that there's a valve cover gasket leak that has to be addressed, and one of the carbs may have a slow leak.
Oh yeah, I will need some new brake pads and possibly new rotors if they cannot be turned.
So far from the 5 mile trip I have taken on it, it seems to be a pretty strong and powerful bike.
I can't wait to get the leaks and pads fixed. I see a lot of miles and fun times on the bike. Hopefully the few little parts that I do need will not be hard to find.
I love the styling, and the raised white letters on the wheels look great. I think this bike has found a permanent home.
I think I got a pretty good deal on the bike. I paid $1200.00 (US Dollars) for the bike with +- 16K miles on it in decent shape. What do you think?
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

Sounds like you did alright on your deal; I have seen prices go to as high as $3k, but the bike was mint.

CB900 parts will work on your 1000. I have two CB1000; one is a parts bike, it has the rotor on it. e-mail email@example.com

I hope you enjoy your CB Custom.. Just a one year run of that bike.. sounds like a really good deal. I purchased a 1981 CB900 custom 23,000 miles 1100.00 dollars. Never been down. Safe riding to all! 3/27/10.

Just got the bike a couple weeks ago. 20,000 miles on it for $1100 with no problems, and it rides great, smooth acceleration, garage kept, and it still has the original paint in mint condition. Great bike, fun ride. I will have it for many more years.

Anyone have a sissy bar for the 83 Honda CB1000 custom for sale?
