Yeah Steve, I noticed that and went ahead anyway because I like the one I posted also. By the way, on the early CL72's, that is the correct rear fender. (the early models had aluminum fenders front and rear and to top it off, I HAVE a 63' that is completely stock, that has those same fenders). I also ave a 67' CL77 "roller"
ahhh may fav honda... man, my absolute favorite honda is a 73 CB750... just love it... the 90 is killer and everyone just has to love the The CB77 Super Hawk
although what draws me to hondas for builds... i like the CB350... mainly cause the way the motor looks... i love that triumph style with honda reliabilty... i am stoked to get started on my CB350 bobber... but one at a time... got a 10000 projects, 0 dollars, 0 time, and tons of ideas... always a crazy combo...
my cb350 is going to be more of a bobber/flat track style... i want to capture kind of the style that milwakee iron does on their bikes... with my own little twist... not sure if i posted pics of it yet... but here are a few... i got started on it, then distracted by my "quick" TX build that turned into a complete build... before i can pick up where i left off i have to redo my girls bike... she wants custom and has spent all winter designing her Virago 230 bobber build... will be cool... anyway, off my soap box... i just love honda motorcycles (pre 80's, with the exception of the Nighthawk S... i love that f'n bike!) :
Mighty nice machines there AND I wouldn't mind one of those myself.
My buddy here locally, has one of these AND it sure catches MY eye!
Now, this CBX isn't his, but he detailed his to very closely resemble this
one. That thing is beautiful (in my eyes) And Sounds AWESOME!
I have to agree with the CB1100F althought the euro spec version was a little nicer with the gold wheels, lower handlebars and rearsets. It was the first brand new motorcycle I ever bought in 1983 and I rode a lot of miles on that thing before crashing it on some 'road snakes' in Washington State. I didn't have the money to fix it so I hauled it around the country with me as I moved several times and eventually sold it to a salvage yard around 1996.
The early CBX ranks just above the CB1100F in my book as my favorite Honda of all time. I really liked the 1985 VF1000R and lusted after one when I crashed the CB1100F. The problem with most of the Honda's after '84 was the full body work. Liquid cooling brought along lots of benefits but engine visibility was not one of them.
