Nice score! I had a '94 as well and it was awesome! It does everything very well. Two up, etc. Not much to it really..just gas and go. Could use a little more power 'cause it's pretty heavy, but it handles great and if you ride it right, you'll spank the best of 'em. Enjoy!

I had a '95. Great bike, only gripe was that it really needed 20-30 more HP. Even with a V&H 4>1 and a rejet, it still wasn't up there with my warmed over V-65 Sabre. Comfy, great handling, good brakes, and Honda reliability. Probably the most refined pure UMJ ever, with the possible exception of the ZRX.

I'm approaching 68,000 trouble free miles on my '94 CB. Absolutely bulletproof in all areas. Not the fastest, or quickest, or best handling, or hardest braking naked/standard available. But the build quality and finish have stood the test of time very well and as mentioned, it's real comfortable.

Looking at this example. Advice appreciated!

I usually don't like big I4s, but this looks like good bang for the buck and I want to take my son pillion/camping etc.

Great bike as confirmed by he collective CB gang here. Not a 6 speed ( 5 speed ) and not a belt drive as stated in ad. You can't go wrong with this machine. I love mine. She is a big girl though if you are short of inseam you may have a bit of a problem

Bike looks decent but my god is that the worst ebay listing I have ever seen. I'm not sure I understand the majority of it.

They really are great machines and the stock seat is quite comfortable. My only gripe is that there really isn't a ton of info out there about them, at least US sites. I have the service manual and it is ok, but a bit lacking.

I have a stock exhaust system for one (it came off my old '94 ),
that someone can have for free...
Just pay for the shipping from Phoenix. (It's kind-a heavy, so shipping won't be cheap)

The exhaust is in very good condition.

If you get one, my BIL has a Corbin in excellent condition that could be had very reasonable.

It was a great bike until the end. (Deer hit).

Good luck!
