Title: After 15 years of neglect, first ride!
Post by: whit32 on October 24, 2017, 05:13:58 PM
Just got back from my first time riding a CB-1, and the first time this bike has been on the road since 2002!  Just wanted to share :)

What a blast.  Did 12 miles and took it up to 12k rpm several times.  I've had several Honda CB's (CB700SC, CB650, CB600F) and this one might be my favorite.  I've also resurrected and put back on the road several older Hondas but this one was by far the most challenging.

Got it in 2015 "for parts" for a couple hundred bucks.  Been sitting outside for some time and no title.  Motor wasn't turning over.  But I just can't stay away.  Sat for a few years then I dove in head first about 3 months ago for a full refurb.  Not trying to stay OEM original but matching OEM look.  Hence the ebay knockoff headlight, levers, etc.  Disassembled every bolt, nut, and part on this bike except the engine, cleaning, repainting, and replacing when needed.  I actually chased down the original owner who had left it with a neighbor and moved out west.  He was really great in helping find the title and getting it signed over to me.  Just back from the DMV with a plate and it was time to get her back on the road.

Now I have a bike that looks 95% showroom and I'm quite happy!  If anyone needs advice, I've been over every little damn thing on this bike in 100's of hours restoring it, feel free to hit me up for advice.

Hope you enjoy the pics

I just touched up where needed.  Found that this stuff at Home Depot is a pretty close match, I used it to respray anything that was the original dark grey that needed reconditioning.
