    "Field of Dreams" aye, DD? :lol3 :lol3
    Well, I went to see the bike, and it's NOT in very good shape. I'd need 3-$4,000 to get it to where "I" would want it. Don't have the time, smarts, $$$$, smarts, patients, $$$$, etc............ I guess whenever I get one of those, it will be paying after someone else did the work! :cry :lol3 :lol3
    Now, let's see if I can post a pic, after getting it up on Smug Mug!
    Pics, coming.......

    Hey, for it's condition, I'd say it is fairly priced. Steer whoever back on page one to it.

    My brother got an '81 five years ago. Seller took it to the dealer and spent a $1000 having the carbs gone thru before he shipped it. You don't find people like that very often. Bro paid $3500 for it, nice shape.

    For some reason CBX's were the preferred bike for the burn a tire to the cord competion at Laguna Seca in the early 80's. Saturday night was like "Apocalypse Now", at the Bunny show, only without the boat.
