This thread...

...has become one of my favorites for sure. Recently realized that by clicking on new posts at the top of the page was a great way to discover new topics.

I might spend another coupla hundred on this and that.
You'll easily make up the difference in soiled underwear.

D'oh... that one makes me envious. Been looking for a CB-1 for about 4 years, and they're either piles of rusted, dented, beaten poo, or the owner thinks the bike is plated in gold ~ sometimes Both.

The CB-1 is amazing...

It's had it's little nagging things so far. It's jetted lean, the PO put a 900RR shock on it that makes it a boingy mess. The OEM has been much better for commuting.

This one's going to be a permanent addition to the stable.

I've always loved the "little bikes", Hawks, Bandit 400s...

You've tried cranking up the damping on the shock?

Yeah, other than that it looks stock, which is a +1 these days.

I did. The 900RR shock is all wrong. I don't know why people switch it out, to be honest. CB-1 is direct, RR has a linkage... makes for an awful spring rate.

Picked up this 1998 Royal Turd with only 27k on the clock for $1500....... Hoping to make a decent bike out of it. Runs great and at least it has a rear brake! PO broke the lever and never replaced it! That was a scary ride home!!
