Have you modified your requirements to fit closer to your budget? Terry builds very nice bikes and will be very honest and up-front with you about everything. Terry is doing pretty much stock/mild mods on his bikes. That's why I asked if your focus has changed. Personally, I'd put my money into as nice a stock/near stock CBX as you can find for your budget. It will ultimately become less of a money pit, and be worth more than a CBX like you originally described.

Thanks for the advice Dave
Yes I have thought about it and now I'm going for a totally stock bike. Maybe I'm thinking of a Dyna ignition and better coils. An exhaust is mandatory though either a pipemasters or kerkers

I've visited his facility to take advantage of the excellent vapor blasting service he provides. I can attest to the completeness of his facility, organization, detail on project work and attitude towards our passion.

I hear he works pretty cheaply, too. ( :o )


Hehe now that's the keyword .
Does he undertake complete projects or just vapor blasting
When I spoke to Terry he had two bikes nearing completion and available for sale at 12,500$ . It exceeds my budget but if it's worth it I might as well save up and wait a few months more

Yes indeed great guy!!! Very informative and upfront
Although he prefers everything stock
Didn't give me good reviews about the Dyna ignition
He said he prefers the Honda stock ignition any day

Preston Marks in Florida may be able to help you. I am putting a 1303cc CBX motor with CR carbs together which may end up close to that. First runs are promising. I have the support of a local engine expert, but we will not do any for others for money.


Thanks for the advice
I've decided to go all stock now
For anything crazy I'll get myself a cbr1000 8)

I just picked up a 1979 CBX from Terry yesterday. Great guy and builds a great bike.

I did contact him . He seems much more reasonable .
Pricing for his bikes are a little out of my budget but still in reach
