He looks like he could be one of us.
Yup... Riders in their 50 plus range...It's awesome... The guy in the Honda gear was on the VFR... the CB1100 rider gave up a Harley to get the Honda...Wants to add a windshield to get some wind relief, maybe side bags and he'll be good to go...

The Lookout has been there since 1968.....Ortega Highway, with the town of and Lake Elsinore below...Us So Cal riders know it all too well. Learned many'a good lessons on that road, some by the hard learned method.

Sure as soon as I buy one this goes to a second page. Back to first. 00087 cb1100a.
Only problem in first 300 miles, scrapes peg feelers easier then I would have thought. Really, a fun bike. Fit and finish are perfect.

I'd guess the prices or wrapping and painting are probably similar.
Vinyl can look pretty good. http://xjbikes.com/Forums/viewtopic/t=42190.html
I'd still prefer paint, but having a bike wrapped.......the factory paint is still there......potential value increase at resale.

Agreed, I had a 1980 CB750F and that tank swooping down and into the side panels that swept up and into that beautiful duck-tail spoiler on the tail was pure sex to me. The best I ever saw of the body style was a Euro market CB900F that was red with yellow(?, I think it was yellow) stripes. one of the first bikes to integrate the tank, sidepanels and tail into one continuous flowing line.

I couldn't find a picture of the bike I am thinking about, but in my search I found this...





And this...




Sorry for the big picture. You can find a way to deal with it.
