Title: CB-1 with many performance upgrades for sale
Post by: tex900ss on April 17, 2019, 03:38:10 PM
If you want a non-stock CB-1, this is the one you want. The suspension is amazing with a Penske rear shock and fully adjustable fork uppers and internals. I have no idea what the exhaust is, but it's nice. I'm guessing it's something from Japan. It finishes off with steel brake lines and some special side covers and right side round cover that I imagine are non-US as well. I've never seen a CB-1 like it. I've priced it at $3900. Check it out: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1989-Honda-Other/333161359000

Good pitch but 3,900$ is dreaming.

JDM side panels is correct and they look nice.

However...
Missing left footpeg rubber, front aluminium panels, and turn signals. The clocks are eBay replicas which are known to be poor quality, the shock reservoir doesn't appear to actually fit so who know where the shock came from, the exhaust looks more Ali express than yahoo auction Japan. Tank has been stunter jumped on and repainted poorly as edges are chipped. Frame wants refinishing. Forks aren't f4i as those are 43mm not 41.

Even with new tyres and chain it's not a lot more than 2k.

a_morti, I appreciate a knowledgeable reply but I definitely have a few retorts. I have a longer description on the Ebay post where I mention the poor knock-off instruments and the cosmetic shortcomings. Your critique of these is fully understood. On the shock: are you aware that a Penske rear shock comes with an ideal mount for the reservoir? I am not. Perhaps some bits are missing, but that is definitely a top of the line rear shock set up perfectly for that bike. I, too, know a thing or two about bikes, and CB-1 in particular. It's true a little rubber half moon and some hose clamps might tidy things up, but that is an expensive rear shock set up perfectly for this bike. You are right about the forks. I'll change the listing. Whatever they are, they have pre-load and dampening adjustments on top, and they feel amazing. Again, I ride sport bikes and have ridden many CB-1s. This one is very special, particularly in how it handles. I have never felt anything close to how put together this bike feels winding out 4th and 5th gear leaned hard through the twisties. The suspension is dialed in perfectly, whatever it is. And if you have info on the exhaust, please share. It fits well, high and close, and it sounds awesome. In my opinion, this bike was someones performance toy, maybe it went to the track. Money was spent on special pieces. I own a shop and see all the modified bikes. I see crap and flash put on decent bikes. This is not at all that bike. I get that the bike could be prettier and have proper gauges, but it is a bike like no other. You want to feel what that gear driven cam high reving motor really does? The suspension and brake feel on this bike lets you ride to the motor's limits like no other CB-1. Whoever built it knew what they were doing. If you rode it you would up your value estimate.

Appreciate it rides nice but tanks and clocks are real hard to come by.

Still, in the end it's worth what someone pays for it. I think it'll be for sale a while at 4k.


Title: Re: CB-1 with many performance upgrades for sale
Post by: tex900ss on April 18, 2019, 03:12:59 PM
Points taken. I've lowered the price to $3600.


Title: Re: CB-1 with many performance upgrades for sale
Post by: samsdad on April 18, 2019, 03:37:42 PM
I am curious, as to if the clocks are not original, how do you know the mileage?
Honestly it looks like it has far more miles on it than 5k.
 I say re-route the shock tube and re-mount that reservoir.
All together not a bad looking bike, but I agree with Morti.... $2500 is the most this bike is worth.

Post by: tex900ss on April 18, 2019, 04:39:43 PM
Samsdad, I say in the text of the listing that the mileage is not correct. Ebay requires numbers only typed into the mileage box for the listing. And as for the reservoir, I looked at other routing, but saw no other options unless I disassemble the rear end completely. And I understand all of the claims it is worth less. There is just nothing to compare it to. How many CB-1s are for sale, ever? I just did $1500 worth of work to it. And I think that exhaust alone is worth something, plus the suspension upgrades. And the bottom line is that I am selling this one of a kind bike one time. I am starting at the higher end of the potential price range. Feel free to make an offer, anyone reading this.

Tex.
no offense here.
I think your CB1 is in the $2800 range....at best.
it's got too many, well...it just doesn't "look" as though it's a $3200 CB1.
Just my 2cents from about 5 years now of studying this CB1 market. it's a finicky market I'll grant you that.

So....good luck and hope you find a $3200 buyer......

Post by: stussels on May 01, 2019, 10:34:17 PM
pardon me but that cb-1 looks whipped.  before it had the blue paint job and seat recover im sure it was much worse.  more like the rest of the bike that wasnt refinished.  im not even gonna say what i think its worth. :-X
are you certain its a penske shock?  rear reservoir looks exactly like the one on my fox twin clicker.  it may be a fox shock. 

the exhaust system is oem header kludged to a possible atv muffler.  you can see the small piece of metal plate that was welded to the grab handle for the mount.  its not bad, but its not some jdm unobtanium either. 


Title: Re: CB-1 with many performance upgrades for sale
Post by: VintageHunter on May 03, 2019, 10:16:50 AM
I didn't want to be that straight-forward but Stussels is spot on.
That thing does indeed look beat.
The paint job alone is not original.
No stickers, the exhaust is...well.
the Frame is a bit beaten up as well.
it's just NOT a $3200 CB1...sorry.

Post by: hutchence on May 03, 2019, 11:10:37 AM
oh nooooo......

If the bike is worth $ 3200 I will start immediately and export better bikes from Europe to the United States.

All the rumble that the bike is supposed to make sportier can not deceive beyond the very bad condition ....

the tank failed, missing chain protection, no turn signals, what are the discoloration behind the water pump, what about the gasoline tap, the bench does not seem to close properly behind, the right footpeg is missing, everywhere rusty spots, the top two covers missing, handlebar weights missing (alone that makes me no confidence in the bike), everything in all too much screwed around it (in german cald -verbastellt), in addition no trustworthy indication of mileage - my thumb down shows

Down to $2800 now - as predicted by this Forum.
Looks like it's had a bath but still no bar ends.
The lesson learned: this forum knows its business; don't argue, take the advice.

"This is a special bike" in the sense that it takes the short bus.
 -externally mounted reservoir like a baby baboon born with its heart on the outside.
 -the clip ons are mounted 3 inches down the stanchions like a losing entrant in a greasy pole contest.
 -unknown mileage. 200? 5000? 50,000?
 -unknown exhaust. Japanese? Chinese? Congolese? You don't know what "full" means, Kludgey.
 -shock previously posited as a Penske is now an unnamed "suspension upgrade".
 -shredded looking Michelin Power tires with a claimed 200 miles.
 -ground down levers, reservoirs & side covers reveal it's been down more than Monica Lewinsky on prom night.

If it goes for a penny more than the $898 the much cleaner yet non-running-even-after-an-ether-binge Missouri Elite got it would be an injustice.
In my estimation Austin Powers is a $700 parts bike. A dirty, abused, neglected, Frankenstein's monster of a parts bike.

Post by: JokeySmurf on June 16, 2019, 01:59:16 PM
The Missouri Elite has a real Penske shock, a classy Micron pipe, and verifiable mileage.
Austin Powers has a sales pitch based on how rare, special & unique the model is. The bike itself is a disaster.

He said he put $1500 worth of work into it. What was the work???  That was a track bike at some point. You dont add clip-ons to make it more comfortable for the street.  That makes it more uncomfortable! Show me one stunt rider that has clip-ons on their stunt bike...  To my knowledge, they dont.  They swap to straight bars.  The position of those clip-ons are close to where my clip-ons are positioned on "lil fella", my CB-1 race bike.  Steel braided brake lines also hint to it being a track bike.  As shown above, the reservoir on a Penske shock, is black, not grey.  That shock could be from a number of different bikes.  I bet the oil drain plug has been drilled for safety wire.  Mileage is completely an unknown.

July 10th - Now $2200 from $3800

"I've lowered the price to my bottom dollar. Not sure why no one has shown much interest."

--- I HAVE A FEW DOZEN IDEAS ---

"This is possibly the best handling sport bike I've owned, and I've owned many. I've lost a space where some of my bikes were stored and have to pare down to fit my keepers in a one car garage. Come get a great bike on the cheap and help me clear out my garage."

----  Since you've lowered it to your bottom dollar, which is still more than a worn out track bike with missing pieces but added junk is worth, I guess you're stuck with it in your one car garage. List one of the others. I'm curious to see what other super rare, super unique, super broken bikes you will try to sell for $2000 too much. ----

"This is a special bike. Not only is it a rare CB-1, it's got a full exhaust, very nice suspension upgrades, and steel brake lines. The Michelin Power RS tires have about 200 miles on them. It's a small naked sports bike that is tons of fun to ride. I have a small carbon windscreen pictured in a couple pictures, as well as engine guards that are not mounted. These bikes have acquired cult status for their special gear-driven cam motor in a small nimble bike. I would keep it forever but have to sell one out of the garage."

---- You mention nothing that is wrong with the bike. Were you born dishonest or did it grow on you?? ----

Spot on JokeySmurf.
some people have got balls the size of Kong when it comes to their own arrogance on selling motorcycles.

Not sure if you've noticed but it seems that when there's one CB1 for sale, 3 or 4 pop up at the same time, from different parts of the country and for fairly competitive pricing.

Dunno bout you guys but.....it always seems that whenever I have the pesos...not a single CB1 to be had yet when I don't have pesos......4 are available at great prices...sheesh.

Title: Re: CB-1 with many performance upgrades for sale
Post by: tex900ss on August 17, 2019, 03:25:36 PM
The bike is on Ebay starting at $1500

You guys sure aren't very nice. I come from a motorcycle community that helps educate others and makes a place for them in the fold. You guys get your jollies cutting down bikes and sellers. I find that shameful.

I've been into performance oriented bikes from the 80s and 90s for thirty plus years. I sold a CB-1 for $3500 to a collector and immediately missed it. I found this one neglected and fixed it up. Sure it's far from perfect, but it now lives its life carving curves instead of leaned against a house. Someone loved this bike at one time and spent time and money making a CB-1 that performed better than stock, then it sat. Your hatred of such a specimen shows a closed mind in my opinion. And you think I'm a liar and a loser for seeing value in such a bike. You all have no idea of my 30+ years with motorcycles and what I bring to the table.

I have learned that the cult following of these bikes is filled with those looking for perfect stock machines, like those chiming in on this post. It's odd to me. The same happened with the 2-strokes I used to be crazy about. An RD350 with all the performance mods goes for less than a slow boring stock bike. I spent my younger years spending all of my money making bikes go faster and handle better. I love these modded bikes way more than the stock originals, but that's me.

I'm ready to take whatever someone will give me so I can move on the the 900ss project. Y'all should take some time to think about whether you want to pull other motorcyclists in your community up or cut them down. It's a decision we all make.

I don't hate the bike, I hate you.
You are a liar. A dishonest charlatan. Compare your newest ad to the one you first posted on this thread.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1989-Honda-CB-1/333296950302?hash=item4d9a0bdc1e:g:W6sAAOSwb2hdVEfp

It's much less dishonest now and you come off as much less of an oily snake oil salesman. We did that.  I still wouldn't want you in any community I was in though. You are not a sheep to be welcomed into the fold. You are a wolf at the door trying to pass off a cob jobbed Chinese spring as a Penske shock.

Here's a modified eBay CB-1 with confirmed mileage and history.
 https://www.ebay.com/itm/1989-Honda-CB-/303186936936

It sold for $898 before shipping. The seller was a nut. But the bike had a real Penske shock.
Have you considered opening a mega church down there in Austin? They love giving money away to crooks.


Title: Re: CB-1 with many performance upgrades for sale
Post by: tex900ss on August 19, 2019, 07:39:01 PM
JokeySmurf, I take offense to your accusation of being a liar, etc. I will fully admit I know more now than when I first posted the bike. Your choice to call me a lair based on this shows your character. There are a ton of motorcyclist out there that spend their time feeling good putting others down. I know because I was one. If you rode a Harley or didn't know how to go fast you were an idiot. It was a simpler time

Your opinion that the shock is a Chinese knock off is where you show your ignorance to the situation you have put yourself in. Perhaps it's a Fox clicker. I got Penske because I saw that as the common rear suspension mod for the CB-1. Neither is cheap or lacking in ability. While I may not be CB-1 obsessed like some, I do know a considerable amount about well handling motorcycles. I didn't say this bike handled better than the others lightly, as some sort of snake oil salesman. The bike has been dialed in quite well for a rider my size. These words have meaning.

You pointed out that the 'the clip ons are mounted 3 inches down the stanchions'. Does the bike have a poor stance? Does it look lowered? When someone puts F2 uppers and internals on the CB-1 lowers, where does it end up when you set the bike up properly?

And about the tires, you must be blind. The tires are new, nothing shredded about them.

Look, you can feel high and mighty thinking a track oriented bike is a piece of crap, but you are completely wrong in my opinion. Do you like to go fast around corners? I sure do. You know where you learn how to make a particular bike be the best and fastest? The track. I've been passing cocky people that buy their horsepower my whole life. In the mid 80s I loved to see the look on the dudes face when I told him I smoked him on the twisties with my $400 RD400 while he was riding his new Ninja. I've left my Ducati 900ss primer black for 20 years, and as I say to everyone: It looks perfect from the saddle in the hill country. My passion for motorcycles is different than most, but that passion has been very strong for decades. Motorcycling is a hobby, a profession, and border-line obsession. I love the bikes, but more importantly I love to ride. The bikes I love are those that are made to be ridden. The CB-1 in my driveway is just such a bike. I would take on any machine down a twisty road, and I bet I would end up in front at the end. To me, that makes the bike valuable. The untouched CB-1 I sold a few years back for $3500 handled far worse.

I won't poke any holes in your appreciation of the FZ-7 or DR-Z400SM. I understand that we all get our jollies on two wheels, and to me that makes us brothers. Even though you're that annoying brother, I would help you if you were on the side of the road, and I'd like to think you would do the same for me.


Title: Re: CB-1 with many performance upgrades for sale
Post by: JokeySmurf on August 19, 2019, 11:32:16 PM
It's not an FZ-7. It's a 32 year old YAMAHA FZ700. I know its history and I know every part in it. I ride it almost every day and it's stock. But if it had a lot of sketchy Chinese aftermarket garbage cobbled on and I was to sell it, I wouldn't make up what the suspension parts are based on Most Popular Mods polls. I'd get out my wrenches and find out instead of lying. You've had 3 months to cut those zip ties and hide that reservoir somewhere less obscene. Can you even change your own oil? The bike's a rat that was left out in the rain for years. What did you grab it for, $600, hoping to flip it based on the rarity of stock, clean CB-1's? You claim you had experience getting much less money for modded RD's than for untouched ones. Yet you came on here trying to flip this Chinese Frankenstein for $2500 more than you're asking now. Then you feigned shock when you didn't immediately fleece a pigeon.

So now your 43mm f4i forks are 41mm F2 forks. If they drop to 37mm CBR600 forks we're gonna have to make a margin call.
Your "200 mile tires" have dates on the sidewalls. I'm betting it's some month and year from Obama's first term.

YOUR RESUME IS NOT AN ARGUMENT.
It's also very questionable like everything else you have to say.
Your life history does not make this motorcycle worth more. The bike with all it's deficiencies, which you did not notice (wink) or bother to mention until they were pointed out on this forum, is worth $897. The suspension upgrades are a mystery because apparently your knees have dragged so much and your wrist has twisted so quickly, so adroitly, so often, that your knackered joints can't bother to function long enough to turn a wrench and find out what's under the grimy, oxidized exterior. You repeatedly mention these aftermarket suspension upgrades that agree with your 200 pounds of Kenny Roberts infused superhuman dexterity in the twisties. That does not mean this broken mess is worth $3900. Lots of CB-1's have suspension upgrades. Most are much cleaner and sell for much less. Yet you came on here expecting to get that much with a sales pitch sleazier than the meth head whore beater that used to peddle the Slap Chop.

https://hickory.craigslist.org/mcy/d/conover-cb-1-cb400f-for-sale/6954489976.html

This CB-1 is currently for sale for $1950. It's clean. It has glorious suspension upgrades. A master mechanic was brought in to stuff the reservoir under the factory stickered tank. The parts have known brand names. No guess work required. Which bike would you rather dial in and destroy Ninjas on with your stellar racing acumen?

You refused to take any advice or criticism - criticism that was over respectful and under harsh at the beginning. You rejected it and continued insisting on your nonsense. You are such an inherently dishonest halfwit that you've managed to convince yourself that you're a victim. Instead of being humble after having to drop the price 24 hundred bucks you come back and cry that we are meanies. There is no crying on motorcycles, ya mo. It'll fog your shield.

The problem isn't that the bike was tracked. The problem isn't that the bike is modded to go faster than stock. The problem isn't even that you continually re-list a worn out Chinese whore of a motorcycle as having 6000 kilometers... Oh wait, yes it is! The only problem is YOU. How does someone brag about 40 years of devoting his life to motorcycles but not know how to make an ad that isn't $2500 over priced and full of half truths and outright lies? Why did you wait until after you made the ad to discover what the bike really is? How does someone do that? How are you not embarrassed as a motorcyclist? I know. You have to be a born liar with a diseased soul.

You're not my brother. I'd help you out of a ditch after your pot metal Chinese junk parts failed while trail braking your lithe 200 pounds at 90mph in a sweeper. But while I was holding up your husky husk I'd hope my Harley chain wallet was strong enough to thwart your thieving, lying, cheating, sticky fingers.

Let me know when the Ducati project is finished. I'll open the bidding at 4 gajillion dollars.

JokeySmurf,
"Your mother was a hamster, and your father smelt of elderberries! Now away before I taunt you a second time."

You've got a lot of gumption insulting a man and his motorcycle the way you do. I'm sure it's easy sitting in your momma's basement staring at a screen, but come to Texas and say it to a man's face. You'll get taught some manners for sure.

I hear how badly those zip ties bother a person suffering from OCD as strongly as you do, but I bet you $1000 you couldn't mount the reservoir under the seat, or any other way without cutting metal away from the frame or sub-frame. In the long chapter of things you don't know about me and this bike: A strong attempt was made to better position the reservoir by a very talented garage, a garage I owned. Sure, the shock isn't made specifically for the not-so-common CB-1 application. Tell me again why only motorcycles of pure DNA are acceptable, how a Chinese dash makes a bike a whore. You're some kind of bike racist.

Do you feel smart talking about the tire date stamps on the tires, son. I see your projection of insecurity, we all do. When, or if, you live and learn a bit more you'll know how the douchebags announce their presence. It's always loud and clear. And that pipe on your bike crush is way too low for my tastes, but I bet works well for a chicken strip rider such as yourself.

It's true I would have never thought a jerk-off like you would be riding a sweet FZ700. I remember when those came out. I loved how they said "pure sports" on the side. I was a Yamaha freak back then, dreaming of an RZ500. Your pride that it is full stock baffles me. Some new springs up front would do wonders, unless you're 120 lbs, which maybe you are.

To the others on here, thanks for the info and direction helping me understand what I have. I definitely learned the value of this bike is lower than I hoped to get originally. I am super curious where the sale price will end up. This has been a lesson in the attraction of stock originals. And yes, I do start pricing aggressively when I sell a bike. I've sold many, I only get to sell them once, I try not to leave any money on the table. I never intend to misinform or mislead, yet I do get very biased about the bikes I love. I really don't want to sell this bike but am forced to downsize after selling my garage. The way this forum loves one bike one way is odd to me, but there it is. I came of age in a time when flipping your handlebars to simulate clubmans and stripping 30 lbs of fenders and center stand was where the action started. Stock was lame. I still listen to 80s music too, so go figure.

oh man tex, you poor soul ... what a dullhead ....., you're on the wrong side to profile you ...., I could puke when I read your spiritual pours, what little light in you ...., I think you always dive here under new nick, in april you have complained rum that you have a large water leak on the water pump and wanted to know how to fix it ....., your nick = taxonomy the way you wrote there is just the same as you write now, autocratic and above all, with the heap of scrap that you're trying to sell that has not been moved for five years (but you're number 1 in the twisty roads ..... ha ha ha) but extremely sporty and above all other cb1 located here ....., but understand that you will not find any customers here, and much less compliment and support in your sale. ......, find yourself an unsuspecting and sell the lump stole, but look to you after that, you will not be shot by the ignorant buyer

Looks like seller put bike on E-Bay.

Selling price $1525.00

 Appears the opinions of the members with regards to value were CORRECT.   :)

I guess that settles that.
Maybe the Bidders on eBay weren't aware how fast a rider the Seller was.

...If only it had 3 fake Penske shocks.
Maybe wrap the whole bike in reservoir hoses. Might have bumped the bidding to $1575.

Go back to this clown's first oily post here - "It finishes with steel brake lines"
What is this a fucking wine tasting?

So the moral of this story..... we know our sh$t when it comes to the CB-1.  Be honest about a CB-1 you are selling, or ......well.... just rememeber...you started it! 😁
