WTF?
That's production?
Looks like a bastard/hack job..
I like it!

Nope, all stock, came that way with the cool permeter frame. Kind of wish I hadn't gotten rid of it. In fact, I can't even remember who I sold it to...

Here's the wiki:

C'mon, man. SC to PA and back is a doable one-day gig. You can even knock down the PA seller on the blue paint on the frame.

I used to joke that it was the best running bike I owned.

The Victory Vision 8-Ball. Victory made it for 2 years, I don't think they sold a lot of them.

Unusual? The first question at gas stops is - "WTF is that thing?"

I have a functioning '77 Husqvarna WR 250. Starts second kick. Corners better than you'd think. Stupidly fast. Brakes leave something to be desired. I've never, in person, even seen pieces of another one.

Come Be Xecuted!

1979 Honda CBX: Amazing sounding engine wrapped in a plastic frame.
Not my pic, but it was identical (except for the crash bars).

I remember that the last of the CBXs sat in warehouses for years, and were sold at deep discount. They were the ones that came with the small side cases.

There was also a silver one with a black/red stripe that was better looking.

I remember getting a ride on the very first one in North Jersey, I came back sort of pale, and boldly stated................."This is the worst handling piece of shit I've ever had the displeasure of riding, it makes a Z1 seem tight. It certainly does sound good though!"

PS. I was weened on Ducati 750's.

Hmm, I guess I should put my old beater in........................


I uncrated it when I was 16 (Dad's bike), and been riding it since I was 17. 37 years, and I still smile like that 16 year old so many years ago did, when I ride it!
Hopefully Dad smiles too.

Merry Christmas!
Chris

I'm gonna go out on a limb here,,,you win this thread IMO,,,by rarity/exclusivity/eye candy basis. Anyone who understands motorcycles, ALL motorcycles, knows this.
We can continue now,,,,
