    9F78F76E-3F91-40E8-A0D5-9EBA9656D883.jpeg Just found this 79 CBX. Will be restoring it over winter or when it cools off in Oklahoma. It runs great but looks poorly. Thankfully it will be a cosmetic restoration

    image.jpeg It sounds, runs and drives like my old one. As it was 116 yesterday heat index wise I spent that day ordering some parts. I am spending my time finding a fuel tank. I'd like a NOS tank, but would take a solid one and then have all the body parts resprayed.

    I found my own bike on eBay before Christmas but it sold for 9500 so I passed. This is close in the vin range 4200ish which is close to my old bike and has fewer miles and sounds amazing. Starts great with no funny noises. I will provide updates as we move forward. A teaser pic of me on my 79 in 1979

    Where in Oklahoma are you? I'd love to see that bike in person some day.
