Here's my CB1000C - I'm working on the front fender and replacing the rear wheel (the current wheel is off a CB900C):

I just picked up my Cb 1000 about a month ago...disappointed that winter is here. I really hope to get some type of luggage set-up for it(Hondaline hard bags, a trunk or a sissy bar/luggage rack combo). Let me know if you hear of any!

Not if I find 'em first...



I have the racks just not the luggage.

Have you ridden much with the lowers on the fairing? I don't have my lowers either.

Lowers have stayed on with me. I've only had it out a short # of times. Love the bike though. Your set up looks great. A set of cases and you're good to go.

I think that I need the fiberglass ones that I've yet to see for sale. The Samsonite looking luggage seems to have only one hole for the mounting pins. And the most common Hondaline luggage seems to be the Samsonite stuff off of the Goldwing's, as I think it was all similar back at the begining.

I was originally told it was a Goldwing before I went to look at it.

I call him Edward (after the big blue train on the Island of Sodor)

About three months ago I bought a basket case 1981 Honda CB650C off Craigslist. It hadn't run in over ten years and was an eye sore to say the least.





Over the course of the past three months I've devoted most of my free time to getting it road worthy again. I've rebuilt the forks, rebuilt the calipers, rebuilt the carbs, tore off the front and rear end, swapped out the tires, spent hours restoring the tank inside and out, cleaning off rust and grime, t-shooting charging issues, wiring, and a host of other things.









If you are interested, I've posted my rebuild efforts over in Old's Cool.

She's mechanically sound but unfortunately she's taken too many beatings with the ugly stick. No worries, the situation is under control and she's well on her way to be a sexy machine. So far I've removed the ugly luggage rack and back rest, and wrapped the seat in fresh black vinyl. I absolutely hate the fairing and I want to freshen up the overall look of the bike so I also ordered new turn signals for front and rear, a new headlight, and a new tail light.



Once winter rolls around again and bike building season starts back up I'll be fabricating a new exhaust and some other goodies that shall remain a secret until it's finished. Gonna be a fun year!

Hey guys, I've done some work on my CB900 and thought I'd throw some updated pics up.







Next up is some sort of rack that sits over the pillion so I can secure a duffle and other gear. I have a road trip coming up at the end of June, taking her from Iowa down to Arkansas to ride through the mountains.

It's been a while, but I ordered copper 6mm ( I think) wire from Dennis Kirk, along with new NGK spark plug caps. It fixed the intermittent high rpm miss I had.
