.1982 CBX For Sale, Excellent Mechnically and Cosmeticallylly

Post by JoeReid »

I am offering for sale a 1982 Honda CBX that I have owned and ridden regularly for the past 13 years. It is the final year of production for this rare model 6 cylinder motorcycle. It has all original paint, and a few tasteful, reversible modifications such as a taller aftermarket windshield which reduces wind buffeting, a Corbin seat, the bags and mounts have been replaced with a turn signal relocation kit and a modulated headlight and stoplight. All the parts removed to facilitate these mods have been carefully stored and will be included in the sale. It also has the rare optional OEM dash mounted altimeter and ambient temperature gauges as well at a 150 MPH speedometer. Services performed in my tenure of ownership include fork rebuild, brake caliper rebuild, new organic brake pads, valve clearance and cam chain adjustments, new fuel petcock, new gas cap, new absorbed glass mat battery, new alternator bearings, brushes and clutch parts. The tires are Kenda Challanger K657s in the correct sizes, 100/90-19 front and 130/90-18 rear with plenty of tread. It has just had an oil and filter change as well as the sump inspected and cleaned and a new O-ring chain installed. All replacement parts are OEM Honda.

This bike has been ridden around the calendar (at least once per month weather permitting) and performs as well in 40 degree NJ winters (only on dry, salt free roads) and 90+ degree summers. It runs smoothly from idle to 9500 RPM under any load conditions, no surge, no pop, no flat spots. I attribute this to having the original induction system with OEM paper air filter, clean carbs with original jetting, a corrosion free fuel tank and an original exhaust system (the only one I’m aware of that has no rust holes and hasn’t ever been welded). It starts easily cold or hot and the choke can be turned off within a quarter of a mile. Since I have done all the work I will probably be able to answer any questions you may have.

The sale includes the complete original tool kit, many spare parts, a new OEM windshield for example, and special tools plus some original spares from a 1981 school bike I purchased with 13 miles on it.

This motorcycle is extremely reliable and can be ridden long distances, in comfort, with confidence.

I’m asking $15,000, or best offer, including the spares and my technical file, Service, Parts and Owner’s manuals, a complete original tool kit, as well as all the CBX books I have been able to accrue. Please call 908-766-7174 (no texts please) with questions or to make an appointment to see this unusual motorcycle.

The bike and I are in located about 30 miles west of New York City and I am retired so probably available at your convenience.

Thank you for your interest.

Nils, those 1980s color combinations are great, motorhome or motorcycle. It seems all the new cycles are either black or gray, not my favorite colors.

Larry, I almost dropped my CBX at an up hill stop street earlier this Spring. The fact that a woman in an SUV was about 2 feet off my butt didn't help but I realized that at 82 I am not able to control the bike as well as I should when it is stopped. I'll probably be replacing my all time favorite bike with a newer 300 or 400 cc cycle. I'm not ready to stop riding yet but a lighter bike is how I plan to compensate. I have really enjoyed all my ICOA friends, thanks for a great time.

Ashish, Thank you for the kind words. I hope to find a new home for my CBX with someone who will ride it regularly and enjoy it as much a I have. FYI, the Pipemasters produce outrageous sound but the stock exhaust is smoother and seems to produce more mid-range torque. Just my seat of the pants perception.

Joe
Me being short and light, I could never manage the weight of prolink or this would have found a home few miles away. Good luck with sale and with your transition to something different. In case you decide to sell any of cbx specific parts and tools including pipemasters separate from bike, please let me know.
I could use them on my twin shock and custom.
In case you don’t have my number 732 850 8254.

Joe, I believe we only met once, at Marietta, OH, but I remember it as a very enjoyable few days. Perhaps we'll bump into each other again down the road.

Oh yes, Larry Zimmer and I have been half joking about getting something like Honda Silver Wings to stretch our riding days into the future, so you're not alone.

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

Joe. Not sure if you have done already, you could post the bike at Facebook icoa page as well. It will attract many other enthusiasts who are not visiting forums .
I can help with posting if you wish to do so.

Rick, Diane and I enjoyed spending time with you, Susan and all the other CBXers in Marietta. I hope we will be welcome at future CBX events if I show up with my projected pea shooter. Enjoy each day because none of us are getting younger.

Thanks Larry. Looking forward to getting together again but not going to make Marietta this year. We will be in Kitty Hawk with our kids and grand kids that week.

Sold it! Thanks to all for the help and kind words. I'll miss riding and wrenching but hope to continue the CBX fellowship.
