1982 Honda CB900C from United States of America
Great bike and very reliable
Replaced fork seals, new front calipers, re-shimmed valves.
Polished everything and painted the engine. The bike looks almost new. Very smooth acceleration, no hiccups accelerating or decelerating. Cam chains are tight even with this "high" mileage (86,000 miles).
Hard starting if it has sat for a while, but no big deal. Give it a minute to warm up on high idle and off I go.
The bike is comfortable on my old bones and is plenty fast. I run the shocks at the lower recommended pressures. Never pushed it beyond 90 mph. No windshield and the air buffeting is more than I care to deal with. Sounds good too. Still original 4 into 4 pipes.
Yes, it's heavy so not great for a new rider. Great handling. I usually get a few questions and onlookers when I fill up. Very important to keep changing oil. I do it at half the recommended interval.
I love this bike.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
