"Dedicated to the Preservation of the CBX Motorcycle"

My project has been a four year labor of love. Sometimes a year off and on, and finished in a mad dash after I went to the Assen Centennnial and got majorly inspired!

This bike has been built not so much for accuracy as for the "right" Sixties Look, with some handling tweaks and street-legal bolt-ons.

Parra O'Siochain gusseted the frame, mainly around the swingarm pivot, and fabricated most of the pieces that needed reworking. Mike Stuermer rebuilt the engine with one eye closed and one hand tied behind his back. Stage Three jetting with K&N filters and Dyna S ignition are fitted. I have mounted a CalFab swingarm with Works Performance Shocks, with 39mm forks modified and improved by Mike Donndelinger.

The front brake is a TD-3 Yamaha 10-inch, the rear from a Honda 750. Wheels are 18 inch, Borrani 2.50 up front and an Akront 3.00 out back.

I produced the tank and seat from molds fashioned by Bob Horn. The other sets went to Wes Anderson, Jim Reger, and a few other people who are working on replicas of their own design. The molds were destroyed in the manufacturing process. The fairing is pure Ducati 900SS.

Beautifully loud Pipemasters shove firm handling up the hill, with fantastic acceleration.

Next step will be to paint the fairing and front fender Honda retro silver, then show off at a CBX Meet!
