I thought so.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who suffers from "CST Syndrome"........(Can't Stop Tinkering Syndrome).

it's an addiction.
it seems that when I have a bike all dialed in, set, everything is working fine....I find SOME excuse to wanna keep, well, "tinkering" with the darn thing.
I need medical treatment for this syndrome.....seriously.

enjoy the psychosis.
 Grin
It's more about the fun.  I don't have to.  I have the bad tendency to just tinker.  Nothing will be irreversible.

I'm curious...........why?
Why go thru all that trouble to install CBR300 rims?

Nice...3D printer. very nice.
I noticed from your esig flicker images that you 'quite' a collection of bikes.
I'm happy that little CB1 found a good home.

Congrats.

Not directly. But I saw one person do it on Craigslist. I saved the pictures and I got some information by email before the posting disappeared. The back wheel is the same size, the front wheel is slightly narrower, same front tire, rotor on same side. Fitting the back wheel should be a little bit easier, resizing the bearings, correct spacing and mounting the rear rotor and caliper. Yeah a little bit of engineering needs to be done.! I've done a few wheel swaps on other bikes. The process is pretty much the same with a a little bit of machining and measuring. What could go wrong? Ha! Oh and it helps to have a 3D printer to speed up prototyping.

You keep mentioning the CBR300R wheels? its not a direct swap in is it?
I don't think so. Don't you have to mess with a bunch of bearings and disc brake stuff?

What's the best way to post pics on this forum, besides dropping in a link?

Check my sig for now.  My Flickr album is there.  I'll keep it updated.  For now, she is hibernating in the trailer.

Future mods include cbr300r wheels, 900rr throttle/start switch and 929rr rearsets.

Don't give the negative comments too much thought. I know I myself am a bit, well, lets say "brutally honest" when giving my opinion. Just shrug it off and as a friend once told me......"Oh Whelp, somebody on the net who doesn't agree with me".

No biggy.


But I for one would love to see the pics.

Sometimes.....new posters come on here with new threads like "I have this mint CB1 RARE Honda for sale for $7000"......and well, that sometimes just rubs folks around here the wrong way for some reason.

I've been noticing that "most" of the CB1 enthusiasts are just hard-workin' folk who truly love and enjoy their little CB1s and just don't want to be bamboozled.

Troy MI.  I got it in PA, around September last year.  I will post pics later, maybe tomorrow.  I've been a member here for awhile (even with no CB1). I recently left discouraged by some of the negative posts lately.  Decided to come back since I really don't like FB.  Hopefully I will get a better experience this time around.

EyHonda.
where are you located? Where did you find that CB1 gem for $800?
Also..post a bunch of pictures. I'm sure folks here would love to see $800 CB1 finds....all day long.
8  Classifieds / For Sale / Re: Value of a rough, but ridable CB-1? on: February 22, 2020, 01:15:57 PM
Like me says......you BETTER walk on this earth and look over your shoulder every now and then......cause YOU sir STOLE that CB1.
 Grin
$800.  All in with the extras I put in, under $1500. Still a bargain.  Leaves me some room to fix up a few things.

I ended up buying this bike.  Look past the flat black paint and it's still a CB-1 at heart.  I got her running after a carb clean and bypassed the fuel pump relay.   I later replaced the tank and tail with an OEM blue version.  I kept the black ones for later restoration.   It was an easy rescue with nothing more than the normal work, battery, carb clean, plugs, oil change and air filter clean (K&N).  Tires are still good but I'll replace them next season.   Fun mods included LED turns, adjustable Pazzo levers and Rizoma mirrors.  I will swap out the wheels with CBR300rr wheels and rearsets from a 929rr.   I'm finally back after a 30 year wait.  I had a leftover 90 in 91.

So...how much did you end up paying for this CB1?
you never said.
Also...the black doesn't look all that bad as is.
But nice choice on the stock smurf.

Looking for anyone who has a "shifter lever" (foot lever left side) and the clutch perch.
Just PM thanks.

get yourself a 900rr shock. Swap out the CB1 spring and you'll be able to have a good, adjustable stiffer rear shock.

Good luck.

Back in the bad old days it was popular to build single cylinder race bikes.  They're all kind of orphans now, sad to say.

Got pics? Would love to see what this "orphan" looks like.

P.S.
1st Rule of Sales - "show some imagery/eye candy". It'll go a long long way.
Remember, "most" folks here are CB1 enthusiasts for quite some time and this is a hobby for them. Most folks on here, if I can guess at my demographics, buy CB1s in the $2k to $3K range.

Every once in a blue moon, something like yours will pop up but.....most folks on here aren't looking for a near $7K CB1.
But...again sir. I wish you the best.
14  Classifieds / For Sale / Re: Cb-1 with 9 miles for sale. on: February 14, 2020, 04:07:52 PM
I wish you the best and hope you get what you are asking....but.....but...if I know my Cb1 enthusiasts most here are 8:00am to 7:00pm hard workin' blue collar folk. Sure, you may find a Rockefeller or two in the bunch and get lucky but.....more than likely for a $6700 30+ year old Honda....yer best best is to go straight to the Barber Motorsports and see if they'll take it in.

They may have one already but ya never know.

Again, wishing you the best of luck.

Too good to be true.
I reached out to the guy. I'm selling mine but......for $500...it may have been worth it.

The guy never replied.
Like I said...."if a deal smells too good to be true....its a scam".
