The CB1100 is a just a fine looking motorcycle. All these variations look great, as does the stocker IMHO.

That's some crazy looking tuck under and across exhaust.

Power Box by SP Tadao Japan is quite a precise fitting slip-on; uses the stock SS headers and splits into a pair of SS mufflers (4-1-2).
And retains stock centerstand! (Sounds very nice, too.)

The 4-1 exhaust always makes me think of the "Kerker Kicks Ass" ads in 1980's MC magazines.

Sewer Girls were closely related to what we affectionately called Gutter Sluts back in the day. I thought everybody knew this.

THAT, (1983 CB1100F) is exactly what Honda should have done with the new CB1100!
Beef up the forks, give it FI and ABS and call it a day.
IMHO one of the best looking bikes ever made.
Could not afford one in 1983...bought a CX650E... damn nice little bike....probably saved my life also

They've already did an 80's cb1100 in the 80s. That's why Honda made an 1100 inline4 Yamaha SRX!

Coincidence? I think not.

The comment about an updated '83 CB1100f describes my '83 CB. USD ZX-9 forks, CNC triples, CBR 600 front wheel, GSX-R calipers, CBR 900 rear wheel and swingarm, and Ohlins shocks.

The resemblance is uncanny . Did Honda turn to retired Tuning Fork engineers to design the CB?

BikeFreak47 sent me these photos of his GORGEOUS bike to post for your pleasure! I remember drooling over my keyboard a year or so ago when this bike was for sale. What a beautiful bike! Enjoy!
