The CB1000 Custom was only offered for one year, and this example is finished in Candy Regal Brown. Features include an air-assisted suspension system, cast alloy wheels, and a chrome 4-into-4 exhaust. The seller notes the valve cover and right-side engine cover show oxidation, and corrosion can be seen on the underside of the exhaust. The brake fluid was flushed and Dunlop tires were fitted two years ago, while a Duracell AGM battery was installed more recently.

The 973cc DOHC 4-cylinder was factory-rated at 89 horsepower and is equipped with four 32mm Keihin carburetors. Power is transferred through a dual range 5-speed transmission with gears selected by a conventional foot operated shift lever and a secondary lever for selecting high or low range. The previous owner reportedly had the starter rebuilt, and the selling dealer has replaced the valve cover gasket, changed the oil, and performed a mechanical inspection.
