Hey all...wonderful first post here I know...my buddy from the Hawk forum suggested this site, tho I have lurked here some in the past as, I also own an '89 US model.

I imported this bike last year from Japan properly and it is registered. Lots of pictures, a video and details on the eBay listing, but feel free to ask me any questions here, I promise to stick around and try to contribute.

Thanks for having a look!

Hello Deckwan,
beautiful CB1.
for us idiots, like myself, could you explain what is so rare about this bike?
Type II?
what is the difference between this CB1 and a regular CB1?
thanks, that would help.

May not have it all correct so anyone else please fee free to chime in. The tank is slightly bigger, seat is a little different. Taller gear ratios, taller bars, the color on frame and engine obviously...and it has Japan spec lighting switch gear, signals etc.

It is a very cool lil bike....and this one runs soooo good!!!

Oh yeah, also has that wonderful stainless exhaust too....and the rear shock is different as well. This one also qualifies for bing rare just do to its 25 year old survivor condition and mileage imo.

Bigger tank.....huh?
Is there any documentation anywhere you can point us to?

What about the color? Is that a "stock" color? black...all black?
Including the brackets, engine plates, engine? I thought these CB1s only cane in blue?

in the us they only came in blue.  thats a nice looking, rideable bike right there.  looks stock right down to what appears to be aggressive warning decals on the tail.  those type 2's had a redesigned airbox and tank shape that squeezed a little more capacity out of the area for fuel.  maybe only actual change was the bottom panel.  color combo and finish is stock and looks good to me.  good luck with sale!

*also alloy passenger peg brackets and looks like the speedo cable arrangement is different around the sprocket area.

Stussels has it pegged.
Very rare bike indeed, and I doubt there are as many as a dozen in the USA. And in that condition..?
It's a strong price but if a cb-1 was ever worth the big bucks, that's the one.

what can you mention about the "rear shock"?
it's looks like it's some sort of reservoir adjustable shock, not the stock CB1 rear shock?

Rear shock has a remote reservoir.

Thanks for all the input guys. This thing runs so good I am tempted to keep it and sell my 89.

I am going to post a few more pictures to eBay and will be replacing the fork seals and fluid before it goes.

Those decals are aftermarket, in Engrish, I mention it on the eBay listing. Probably put on by the original owner.

Being a 91 it was only legal to import as of last year, I am pretty sure it is probably the only one in the U.S.

Is that rear shock after market or stock?

Stock. There is even a bracket for it on the frame.

WOW....that is sweet then for Honda to have added that remote reservoir and probably the shock is a better shock then on that Spec2 CB1...nice.

Whoa,  there was yellow offered in the US as well.  Albeit not a popular choice they did NOT sell well.  I know because we had one....
