Does anyone know if an exhaust from an NC23 can be modified to fit?   I believe at least the primarys will fit since it is the same engine basically.  I'm sure after the mid-pipe, it will not.   But a bit of cutting and welding can be done.

Does this mean this shock will still fit the VFR or is it modified for only the CB-1?

Yup, same mental condition! I don't think I've owned a bike stock for very long.   But i wont go too far with this bike tho.   There is a point of no return.  I don't want any mod to disable it for more than a couple weeks.  I built my my Hawk with advanced CST and it took more than 3 years!  This will not happen here.

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

Here is one pic of the cb1 with cbr3 wheels.  I'm not a fan of 3 spoke wheels.  The 5 spokers look so much nicer, IMO.

Yes, thanks!   My current collection is a custom Hawk GT, VFR800 (5th gen) and the CB-1.   A V2, V4 and I4.   My daily is the comfy VFR.

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.

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.

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.

Yup! Lucky for me it looked like a turd!  Cuz I know better!

$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 sent you an email about the OMT can.  Question is why not use that nice Beet system on your own CB-1??  That price is half my bike!  My bike is a bit of a beater so I'll likely keep it that way.  I'll add a few bits here and there to personalize it but I like it the way it is.

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.

I would like to change my exhaust to something that was available back in the day.  Kerker perhaps?  I know these are hard to find but maybe someone here has one they are kicking around the garage.
