These engine/frame guards are pretty neat, havent seen them before
Yeah, clear coat. I tried this but you can't do it. Better to paint it VHT gloss black and bake it. Did that after I tried buffing. Matches the bike and has held up very well.
And geez man, those must be some serious boots!
It is a bike I was considering.
The owner said it was from his boot, but I have no idea how he managed to do this.
It is WAY in front of the peg and he was not that big a guy.
I'd bet he dropped it at low speed.
don't not buy the bike because of something small like that, My cb 1100 is a fabulous bike.
I did get to ride it.
It was nice and I enjoyed it a lot.
Not a show stopper, but thoses scratches would play into the negotiations.
Buy another clutch cover.
I sold my 2007 BMW R1200RT last night. Looking for a new bike. Something smaller since most of my riding is around town. The CB1100 has always interested me. Is there any way to add small hard bags. I used to have some Givi E21's on my Versys and loved them. Is there a Givi rack? I just don't want to have to go back to a backpack.
I don't think Givi has side bags for the CB1100, but Hepco-Becker does. They do make the bike pretty wide. I prefer a top case as a first bit of luggage since it carries more. Wish there were mounts to fit original-style Krausers in tight like on airheads. This is not my bike, but the mounts and bags look pretty decent on it.
Cbolling, here's what Givi makes for the CB1100. I have a V40 and a V47. Funny you sold an '07 R1200RT for a CB. I sold an '07 R1200R for mine. I don't miss dodgy, aging BMW electronics one bit.

I am the OP. I never bought one even though I lusted after it for quite some time. I guess the 18" wheels turned me off somehow. While I am a fan of the RS, the regular CB1100 has been back on my radar as of late. I could settle for a nice 6 speed with the 4 into 2 exhaust and the 17" wheels of the RS. But that would run up the tab quite high.
I agree with WOW! That's the coolest thing I've ever seen.
I almost never want for a sixth gear on mine, in fifth at 70 the lump is spinning just under 4k.
the Yoshi exhaust is a must have, saves fifteen pounds, looks and sounds much, MUCH better, and still is quiet, unless you really rail on the throttle.
the oddball size wheels are a pita, but I love everything else about her.
jazzman, is that a Yoshi slip on or full exhaust? I don’t even own a cb1100 yet but I’m curious!
full exhaust. See the headers?
I'm also finally replacing the original tires tomorrow. (I know, I know, Waaaay too long) if you could see the age cracks you'd be mortified.
Seriously, I should have replaced the rubber three years ago.
The only thing that sucks about the bike is its oddball wheels, really limits tires, but the stock rims are just so beautiful, I can't bear to replace them.
What really blows my mind is how low these things are selling for on the used market. I simply don't understand. I constantly get remarks on the road from ...everyone on how much they like the bike, which never happens on my FZ-09, yet over on the cb forum, there's multiples for sale with near zero miles for 3 and 4k.. Boggles my mind.
Another one that's also up f/s
...this one has the retro CB-F body kit
They did a good job on that.
That body kit is pretty sweet!
Jazzmans, don't feel too bad. I ran the original tires on my '13 until a month ago when I got a nail in my rear. I had a set of Pirellis waiting, was just waiting for some time to swap 'em. A flat was a good enough reason.
Man. If I could find a nice red one for $3k in Northern CA it would be in my garage tomorrow!
