And Then There Were Two...

Postby Wheels24 » Mon Mar 16, 2020 6:58 pm

Stumbled upon Okinawa Joe's Vintage Motorcycle Sales in Harrisonburg, VA while searching for an '81 CBX. Turns out they (meaning John, the owner and ICOA member) had just finished refurbishing one which used to belong to another local ICOA member. Needless to say, I jumped on it and now have the '81 keeping my '80 company in the garage. I think I heard them arguing out there last night...something about "fairings are for wimps" and "red is for firetrucks"... Naturally, I love 'em both. John took me for a great test ride in the Harrisonburg area...beautiful part of the country. He has an '81 of his own which, as it turns out, was likely manufactured on the same day as mine since the serial numbers are only a few numbers off. Stop by if you're in the area...he'll talk CBXs with you all day and likely go for a ride!

Congrats on the new bike. They both look great.
Such a unique situation these days. A shop that works on vintage bikes and an owner that rides one.

I assume you are talking about John G? He is a long-time CBX owner and enthusiast and he's on here too, I think. Congrats on finding great examples of these bikes and enjoy them both!

Both beautiful bikes...well done! :clap: I noticed the windscreen on Your new '81 does not have the lip on the top that causes turbulence. I've wondered if it might be better...a clean slipstream vs. buffeting at the helmet. How do You like it?

Gustafson makes/made a replacement shield without a lip that bolts right on. I liked the best of any of the several screens I had on my various Pro-Links.

Clearview did as well, but they had so little call for them, the threw out the molds a few years ago. Susan and I were at Clearview in Sept. to see about having a screen made for her Spyder.
