Just picked up an 89 CB-1 with 3700 miles on it.  It is missing the center stand and the rear fender has been cut off.  Anybody selling these?

Thanks, I'm in CT, USA

welcome,wow low miles. Before you spend too much time and money on the center stand.  make sure your bike is set up for a center stand. not all of them are. 

maybe you already know this. just a heads up.

Going off the part sites these are the big parts needed for a center stand. Additionally you need a 16x22 washer and 2.5mm cotter pin. (to keep the pivot pin in) A quick google search showed a couple sites with NOS stands and bits.
50500-KAF-700  - stand
50541-MT6-600  - spring
50526-MT6-600  - pivot pin
50523-425-000  - spring stand


In regards to the rear fender, are you looking for the bit that is in the subframe or the thing that holds the plates, turn signals, etc.

Interesting about the center stand. My CB1 doesn't even have the eyelets which recieve the centerstand. Appears some model years had the centerstand and some model years the centerstand eyelet holes weren't even manufactured under the engine. How odd.

Ok, here are some pictures, and an update on this project. Just picked up the bike two weeks ago, here are the obvious issues known and discovered so far. Pictures are shown holding up a Targa Tsunami fairing for fitment. I like the look with the fairing on.

Bike was missing the exhaust, previous owner sent out for coating and it got lost. I had located one on eBay so I thought it was no big deal. Bought the bike, bought the pipe, I was happy. The next day I got a refund on my pipe, the dealer could find it, it may have been re-listed by mistake or thrown away. Now trying to find a decent pipe is like finding hens teeth. I ordered a Delkevic pipe for a CBR400RR Tri-Arm and the pipe almost fit but the headers were at the wrong angle meeting the motor, returning today for minimal restocking fees (love Delkevic customer service). I ordered a piece of s$%t pipe on eBay and hope to make it fit the Kerker muffler that came with the bike, if not I will have to figure something else out.

Front fender was a different color, obvious. Rear cowl had some cracks and missing stand-offs, the seller gave me another rear cowl with cracks on side but repairable and all good mount points. I intend to paint the Targa fairing, rear cowl and front fender to match the tank.

Missing chain guard. Any suggestions if I can find one for a CB-1?

The center stand was removed but the mounting points are there. JDG, thanks for the part numbers, what source has these, I can't find any in the USA?

The suspension feels dead compared to my Honda Hawk GT which has a Penske shock and RaceTech springs, emulators, and preload caps. I was reading on this forum about an owner picking up a CB1100XX shock and it bolted right in. I saw one in great shape and really cheap ($39 delivered), I'll try that first and if it doesn't work I may go for a CBR900 or an aftermarket shock, depending on how much I like the bike. I plan on adding the RaceTech mods to this bike as well.

Bar end mirrors are in (the cheap round eBay china ones work fine for me at $29.00)

Interesting that while the gauges show just over 3k miles, some parts resemble that and others don't, like the plastic control housings. The bike has some scrapes on the forks from a fall, so maybe these were sourced to fix the bike.

JDG, I'm just looking for the plastic under tail section that the plate and signals mount to.

The current one is cut short and the tail light is tucked into the rear cowl. I can probably find a CBR rear fender new or on eBay for cheap money which may work fine. I'm just not into the fender eliminator look. I like to keep my bikes looking as close to stock as possible. (I say this as I'm installing a Targa fairing left over from a previous Hawk GT project)

I might have an extra exhaut laying around.
i'll have to check this weekend.
give me a few days to see what I have and I'll take some picks if I can.
it's in good shape I know that.
it doesn't come with a can but the 4-pipe exhaust is all there.
gimme this weekend to look.
I can sell it to you for whatever the going rate for exhausts are for this bike, buyer pays shipping.

Ok, standing by, thank you very much. Here is a link to the pipe i just bought on eBay so you can see the pictures. The header section looks good but its back half and can are questionable. http://www.ebay.com/itm/401039339955

Appreciatively,
Paul

I was mainly looking at sources in the UK.

The supplier for the sites below lets you add the item to cart and start the checkout process. It's a slim chance that they actually have the item but you could give it a try. You could also put in a parts request with your local honda powersports dealer.

If you were missing the sub frame piece I have a extra one laying around. Your best bet might be to contact the bike breakers on ebay. My -1 is pulled apart at the moment, I can get a picture of the part you are looking for if you want one as reference.





Also I got a extra header laying around that fits the -1 but doesn't look like it was off the -1. I can get some comparison pics and measurements if anyone wants them.

All,
I've picked up some great info on this site, so thanks for keeping it going. I've managed to find everything I was looking for and my CB-1 is now ready for paint.

Exhaust - purchased a 30degree stainless steel mid-pipe from an eBay site in the UK, flared the end and mounted the vintage Kerker can.

Fender / Signals - I managed to find an unmolested rear fender with some very rare CB-1 MK-II factory signal lamps, and then found a matching MK-II set for the front.

Fairing - I had purchase a vintage Targa fairing for a Honda Nighthawk some years back that I will finally put to good use. A friend fabricated a mounting system for the fairing and MK-II signals similar to that on my Hawk GT. A set of small round Chinese bar end mirrors complete the look.

Carbs - rebuilt using Honda CBR600F1 (Hurricane) carb kit. Exact same carbs and factory jet sizes.

Gearing - I'm going from the stock rear sprocket down to a 37T. Hopefully it will do the trick to bring down the revs at highway speeds without killing performance. Maybe I'll try a 16T front if I still need to gear higher.

Front forks - added Gold Valve emulators, RaceTech springs, new seals and bushings. So......... I guess that proved the low miles were a complete lie. Fork bushings don't wear out in 3k miles. The forks do feel great though.

Rear shock - I picked up a CBR-XX rear shock for cheap but I haven't changed it yet. The rear seems a bit better after the forks mods.

Now the questions comes - What color?Huh I've seen some pictures on the web of a CB-1 painted a medium metallic blue, similar to Yamaha's traditional blue/silver/white scheme. Anybody really crazy over another color that looks great on a CB-1? Red is out as I have a red 89 Hawk GT, red/white 91 CBR F2 and a red/white 90 NSR250 (cabin racing).

Looking good! I do like a bit of period bling.

I'm a big fan of the stock Jdm blue. Very common in uk but not in the states. No idea on colour code but it's not far away from the previous model civic dyno blue pearl. Maybe a little more black.

Interlagos blue from bmw is also similar. Maybe closer even.

 I love the stock blue. Especially in the direct sun.
