In case anyone is looking for a set of crash bars, I've just installed a set from recraftmoto.com in Ukraine (link https://recraftmoto.com/motorcycle-protection/engine-guard/crash-bars-for-honda-cb-1-cb-400-f-1989-1991/). Fit and quality are excellent, and shipping took just a couple of weeks. I had previously bought a set for my NX250 and the quality was equally good. I know they look kind of stupid, but the way those engine cases stick out I'll suffer the dork look to get the case protection!

Those actually look pretty good and will protect those impossible-to-find cases if you do fall over.  As a big plus, you could fit some small folding highway pegs that would allow you to stretch your legs a bit on a long ride.

Thanks Eric, yeah that's what I'm thinking. I've already done one Laurel and Hardy tip-over at a friend's house, where my 70 yr. old legs could not save it. Of course I was showing off and gassed it up. Spun out and fell at low speed but luckily it was on dirt/grass.

Nice find Spurlock.  Not sure I'd bother on my bike as both sides have rash already from PO, but if it was nice as yours I might.

I have crash guards on my -1.  They came to me as NOS.  They're possibly Hepco and Becker.  I like them and feels the same way.  Lots of irreplaceable stuff on the -1.

The design looks identical to yours.

The only downside is they may be a bit in the way for riders with big feet. Downshifting I even contact the left side bar with my little 8-1/2's occasionally.

I have installed the custom Crash bars on my tiger 600 xrx. although company fitted bars are installed at the engine area of the bike which will definitely not protect the legs Pakistani Talk Shows of the rider due to its small design. Believe me, you need to see the fall without the crash bars once then you will know what it causes.
