This 1979 Honda CBX (VIN CB12009725) is a good looking example of the big straight-six, and the seller reports just one registered owner and 7k miles from new. The bike is further said to have spent most of its life in storage, and quite a bit of recent refurbishment work including rebuilt carbs, new tires, a fresh battery and more sound to have been a direct result of this disuse. It’s now said to start easily and run well however, and paint remains original and well-kept. Find it here on Craigslist in Redding, California for $12k.
Undeniably the heart of these bikes, both from a visual and mechanical standpoint, Honda’s 1047cc, twin cam, 24-valve straight-six was a little jewel, and remains impressive today nearly 40 years since its introduction. Good for 105 HP and 135 MPH flat-out, the seller says this one benefits from professionally rebuilt carbs and a rebuilt alternator.
Other recent work included fitment of a new battery (with added tender charging port), new fork seals, and fresh tires with a tread pattern that’s said to be close to OEM. Gauges are perhaps just a bit cloudy, but that shouldn’t be too difficult to rectify. The saddle has been recovered, but the seller claims that the pan and foam remain original and in good condition.
Says the seller: “This bike starts and runs very well, and would be an excellent bike for the occasional weekend outing. The bike has never been in any kind of accident, nor has it ever been dropped. It still has it’s original Candy Glory Red Metallic paint, which shows very minimal normal signs of wear.The original mirrors are included , and in very good condition, they were just omitted for the photo shoot. The bike comes with the original Honda shop service manual and two Honda ignition keys. This bike was bought new in Southern California, and is rust free.”
