2  Classifieds / For Sale / Re: 1990 Honda CB-1 ORIGINAL 1559 miles - Texas on: November 20, 2017, 11:30:07 AM
These bikes are just not selling lately...I know first hand.

Low miles and great shape may get you a premium price from the right buyer at the right time, but there are very few people trafficking this forum who don't already have a CB-1. Ebay would be your better bet at getting the interest you seek.


100% spot on with this statement. It never fails, when the cash is a burnin' a hole, there's no CB1s to be bought. When there's no pesos on the street.....you see 4 CB1s for sale in all manners of shapes and conditions.....never fails.

But yes, that is correct. You just have to have the right timing and buyer to get your CB1 sold.
Good Luck.

well....how much do expect to get for it?
I understand, 1500 miles, yes, I get it.
What do you think you'd let her go for?

Now....if someone would just make those right sided engine cover plates out of "aluminium"....you'd have something there.
You could sell those for say...$20 a pop. I'd pick one up....but seems no one makes those anymore.
Shame.

Nice and all but.....well, that's a pretty penny to pay for a side cover.
it's nice though.

and therein lies the hangup with all our so called "regulations" which do nothing but stifle progress.
I think here in the U.S. theres a different mind-set to the smaller cc bikes, I've said it in many posts and I'll continue to believe that.
In the near future.....very near future...a 2400cc engine wont be enough.
They are still making the 400sf for the Japanese and Asian (and maybe Australian?).............

The CB400SF is a beautiful bike. Just not diggin' the dual shocks in back and the no-geared cam is a total bummer.
Other than those two important aspects, she's a looker.

the Honda 300's are all crap.
the CB1 will never be remade. ever.
the engineering, tooling and milling of the CB1 can no longer be feasibly created. Honda is only looking after their bottom dollar these days as are the others.
I'd like to get a leg over the Yamaha R3. seems like a neat little thing to fart around with. Also on my leg-around list is the 390KTM single thumper.

Though, something bout an in-line4, 400cc engine that's gear driven that just has spirit. All of todays 300s are made for the Taiwanese market...not for the US market. If Honda were to truly be thinking about creating an entry bike for the US market, they'd dust off the 400 engine specs and start with the CB1 with modern componentry.

unfortunately...it's all about "perception" and not "performance".
here, in the U.S.of A......idiots rule. Folks who believe bigger is better rule what bikes Japan produces. if you aren't riding a 1000+cc superbike, yer a puss, hence "perception" not "performance".
Only in Southern Cali have I had the pleasure of experiencing what its like to ride a small bike fast. A CB1 and I'm grateful for being able to have experienced this sensation.
But...the entire US is not SoCal is it. Folks here really appreciate small, revy, well-built engines and they love to rip em thru the canyons.

Maybe Honda Motors will wake up....but I'm afraid that for now, your dream of the modern CB1 will just have to remain a dream.
they're trying to make it as narrow as mechanically possible, yet have that neat cranck-config that provides better torque.
Whilst all the while not wanting to make yet another 4-cylinder CBR type bike.
I'd prefer for Honda to make another CB1, now they'd have my attention if they did that.


Imagine a CB-1 (with of course the CBR 400RR engine) in a modern day lightweight frame with USD suspension and massive floating brake discs  Roll Eyes

*drool*

$2k should (with a grain of salt) be a decent CB1 to work on.
should have title.
preferable maintenance records.
tires should be good.
no leaks.....ANYWHERE.
frame should be straight.
seat decent.
plastics decent.
NO rust on bike, nor in the tank.
No dings or dents in the tank.
no broken plastics.
bike should be in working, running order.

that should bout do it.
the rest is....well, how much "work" does it need to be a looker.
When they're on the CL in the area they are ~$2k asking..
the closest one on there right now is a 6 hour drive. But it's a hell of a deal..
I wish I could find the time to drive up there.

Very funny indeed.
The way the Japanese write their words sounds like scripture.

"He hath passeth into the night on two ridden hooves shall make tootle sound and he shalleth forever alerteth thy four legged creatures of this earth upon his arrival".

Very funny indeed.

Yer looking for a $1500 CB1?
That’s gettin into the “more effort” range to get er to be a good CB1.
But if you think yer up to the challenge...amen to ya.
K, you are close by.  Main house is in Chantilly VA.

How handy are you?  Are you looking for a pristine or one that takes a bit of work?

I don't mind work as long as it's not something serious, or a complete basket case.
What ya got?

You've made a good choice picking the Honda CB-1.
Parts? meh....you can find "most" of them on either ebay, or the UK or on the Honda CB1 FB or here.
prices? a beater will run you round $500 or so...with a title, make sure it has one.
a good working CB1 with some cosmetics issues will run you round $1700 to $2100 or so.
A pristine CB1 will run you round $3000 to $$4500 or so.....with the top end being a 7 to zero miler showroom specimen.
that should give you a starting point.

Mind you there's everything in between too.
Meaning, you can get lucky find someone desperate to sell their CB1 for a lot less than what it's really able to fetch.
timing, timing timing with the right cash at the right moment.


Thanks.
CB-1 isn't my only choice... It just checks a lot of my boxes and it's at the top of my list.. Well, after some JDM bikes that I won't find or be able to afford (zx250/400r and rvf400 I'm looking at you.. )
I'd also take a SV650, a SOLID vf500, or a few other things...
I'm not scared of bigger bikes, I've had seat time on 600 - liter bikes. Just not what I'm into..

I'm really hoping to get lucky on something, price wise, here at the end of the season lol. I don't mind something needing some maintenance but I'm not trying to build a basket case.. The idea is to have ~1500 or less in something I can ride while I build something else.. I like having projects, but I hate when my only one of something is that project.

SOrry i still haven’t had a chance to look for that side stand. We just got home. We were at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas, on floor 32....where the active shooter was.
It was an all-round bad scene. I’ll try to look for the stand this weekend.
