1  Classifieds / Wanted / Wanted: CB1 shifter foot lever and clutch perch assembly on: February 16, 2020, 06:27:07 PM
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.

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.

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 $ may have been worth it.

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

Did you ever find that CB1?
I have one for sale.
8  Classifieds / For Sale / FOR SALE: PRICE REDUCED-CB-1 (2nd SPARE ENGINE part of this DEAL) on: January 17, 2020, 08:36:24 PM
I'm looking into perhaps doing some dirty riding this spring/summer and would like to sell my CB1 to a good home.
If anyone here is interested (please...serious folks only)...let me know.

The bike is in great shape. It's in SoCal (LA/Antelope Valley area).
it's black and I've kept her nice and well-maintained.

Asking $2900.00 (Price dropped)
I have spare parts as well I'd be willing to talk about "possibly" throwing in the deal....maybe.
1) full spare engine.
2) full carburator (clean)
3) 2-tail sections
4) an extra seat.

Bike comes with a 900rr rear shock which has been rebuilt and the proper CB1 spring swapped into it.
Has VFR bars. This is almost like the stock bars, just a tad lower.

Here's the link on FB for some pictures. I can't seem to load up a good image on here.

PM me if interested. You guys know me. I don't dik-around and I'm a square dealer.

9  Classifieds / Wanted / WTB: original Honda CB1 driver foot pegs (both sides) on: January 11, 2020, 12:00:55 PM
Anyone got a spare they are willing to sell?
Seems my brother, when I had lent him the CB1 a few years back, dinged up the foot pegs and I’d like to replace them.
The knock-off China ones are a bit tad ‘wide’ and don’t fit the original “round” peg properly.

So I didn't notice because of all the blacked out parts on that bike, but it has an extra steel bar going from frame slider to frame slider for extra support.  I've never seen those before, but does make sense because that's what the CB1 needs to prevent engine mount damage.

EXACTLY!......I think this little contraption makes sense. We already have a race fellow (Peter) that has tried and true tested frame sliders multiple times WITH success. Now if I can only get him to send me some nicer images of his bike WITHOUT the farings so's I can see how those pups are bolted on. (Peter? you reading this)?

Guess this went by way of the Do-Do.
12  General Category / General Motorcycle Discussion / Re: CB1 frame sliders - NOT THE CAGE type on: January 10, 2020, 03:21:36 PM
I think because the 919's frame comes down on the outside of the engine mounts, the frame slider actually attaches to the frame, not the engine mount.  So the frame takes the brunt of any impact.  The CB1's frame comes down on the inside of the engine mounts, so the mount takes the hit.  There are images somewhere of broken engine mounts on the CB1 because of this.

Look at Peter Long (Long time "no pun" intended, CB1 enthusiast AND racer). He has proven track knowledge that 'his' frame sliders work.
Read the FB post discussion.

Also, trying to get Peter to send/post up some photos (nice ones Peter not them 1970's grainy-blurry ones) of how his were attached.

I'm grateful for the concept of protecting the CB1 engine....just not too crazy bout the "obnoxious" cage it creates.
there has to be a better way...................
14  General Category / General Motorcycle Discussion / Re: Introduction on: January 09, 2020, 11:45:43 AM's been since March 2018...what's happened with this build?
15  General Category / General Motorcycle Discussion / Re: CB1 frame sliders - NOT THE CAGE type on: January 09, 2020, 11:44:53 AM
humm...thats interesting cause the 919 has a similar situation, yet the mounts work just fine and no engine mounting-point breakage.
