Have a Honda Custom ?
Show it off here!
Here's my 1983 CB1000 -
Nobody owns a nice CB Custom? Honda sold a bijillian of them from the 200cc all the way up to a full liter+ a little. What about that cool dual range tranny? I had a 400 custom in the early eighties, I wish I had a photo of it. What I really wanted was a 900 with the dual range. I will eagerly await the plethora of photos I know are out there. I may have an old photo somewhere to lend the thread.
Another pic of my CB1000C -
Oh I had a cb900f back in college that I dearly loved! Of all the bikes I have ever had that is the one I wish I had held on to. I also had a cb750A (automatic clutch) for a while. That bike was ok. Easy to ride in town and mild mannered which was good since I was just really learning how to ride motorcycles.
Somebody here in town has a CB650 (82 I thk) for $700 with less than 15000 miles, would be a cool 2nd bike
I just sold a super sweet cb900....
I just bought a CB100C that looks exactly like Hondo's (color-wise) for $300 . Oh, it has the Honda fairing as well (not the Windjammer). It will only idle right now and its been collecting dust for 5 years, but it will clean up to be real nice. I'm happy as you might imagine.
Wow, what a deal!
And welcome to ADV!
I had one once. I bought it for $275 at a wrecking yard. Dented tank and broken shock. It was a great motorcycle. Had the dual range transmission.
Its odd though because I have been a member/lurker for so long I thought I had posted. I have a KLR so usually I post over at the KLR650 site (great site too).
I'll try to get some pics up too but my digital is busted.
What is this dual range transmission you speak of? Got pic's? :huh
1980, 1981,& 1982 CB900 Customs and the 1983 CB1000 Custom (like mine in the pics abouve) have the dual range (10 speed) transmission.
here's apic of both shift levers on my bike -
Here she is. I got her running today. Cleaned up the carbs and put in new plugs. I have to say, the bike is growing on me... It sounds AMAZING! What a shock to here that exhaust rip when I fired it up. I'm a happy camper.
Question #1: If I take the fairing off will I need to find buy the headlight somewhere? Or does the fairing have the same one that I can bolt to the stem?
Question #2: Where can I get new rotors for a decent price? The rear especially.
Question #3: Whats the best way to get stuck calipers unstuck?
To swap out the fairing you will need to remove the fairing, it's mounts, it's wiring harness and other parts (I have the installation manual) and then install the headlight assy and it associated wing mounts and hardware.
You need to do this, and trade me for mine- I really want that setup!
Look at eBay daily for deals. Maybe avail at Bike Bandit -
You'll probably need to remove, dissassemble, and clean the calipers if they are stuck.
Also, the horns will need to be reloacated to their stock position.
To do this you'll need the mounts from a stock CB1000C.
Again, if you want to set your bike up like mine, then we have an ideal situation - we have everything each other needs.
Hey thanks for the quick reply Hondo.
For the time being I'm gonna keep the fairing. It's growing on me. If I do decide to take it off I will keep it in storage. That way whoever buys the bike (You'll have first dibs if that day comes Hondo) will be able to return it to original if they so desire. Thanks for all of the info on the bike. You are a true Guru on these machines.
And more pics since we've only got two people posting them!
(The right side grip is back on now)
The KLR is getting jealous:
Something about a large air cooled engine that makes you happy
Again, I put the right grip back on.
Not as clean as yours Hondo, but I like her!
It's not a custom, but...
How about a '94 CB1000 SF ??
It's for sale here... http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=406567
Check it out,...
Let me Know what you think!
I have done extensive work on this one.
Cool bike. You must have a huge amount of time invested in that machine. Your hard work shows. How do you like the EBC rotors?
You are right about the time, and love, invested in the bike,
The EBC rotors are lighter than stock, and they seem a bit grippier (in a good way) too. but it's a little hard to tell exactly, as I changed out the rotors and calipers at the same time.
P.S. how about giving the bike a "bump" in the bikes for sale section, PLEASE...
