Six Sixes!

Post by vinceciotti »

Whew, we got SIX CBXes together down in Albuquerque NM today! That’s:

• 36 cylinders
• 144 valves
• 19 exhausts (weird, huh?)

From left to right, the bikes & owners are:

• Steve Steenrod’s stunning 79 CBX
• MIke Venhaus’ black 79
• Me & my red 79
• Jeff McCampbell and his white 82
• Jack Jason and his black 80
• Stu Bloom and his red 79

Anybody top that recently?

You forgot the cumulative age of the riders. That would be the most impressive number! I am guessing 337 years.....

Nice pic, Vince.
The sound must have been great.
Is Mike using the Dencos?

Combined weight of bikes and riders would be pretty serious, but total cc's would be the biggest number, I would think. :)

Looks like a great time, thanks for sharing!

I do believe that I see one of my old CBX's in that photo. Is that the fabulous
Mike Venhaus I see on it? A great individual. The person that I got that bike from
is well known to some of us old timers. I got it from Tom Whaley a bit before he passed away.
Very Best,
Phil

There's a name I haven't heard in a while. He was a wealth of knowledge.

Either garage is too small or we have too many bikes. Or Momma's car needs to go outside.

Rick,
He really was a wealth of knowledge. He was also a warm and wonderful human being.
He was the first that I knew reproducing the clutch rubbers and some other things.
When his health started to fail he seemed to think that I should have his parts, books, and
motorcycles at a price point that I could not refuse. The old Smokin' Joe CBX is what is in
the photo above. I gave Mike the same deal that was given to me as I knew it was going to
the right place to be loved and cared for. By the looks of it now, I made a good choice.
Very Best,
Phil
