Late in 1978, Honda uncorked a knockout punch onto the world of motorcycling with the incredible six-cylinder CBX. An early-release 1979 model, the CBX was created with the inspiration and experience derived from Honda's all-conquering six-cylinder RC166 250cc Grand Prix road-racing motorcycle. Both the RC and CBX were the brainstorms of Shoichiro Irimajiri. When Honda unveiled the CBX, it simply exploded conventional notions of what a high-performance motorcycle could be.
This one; with only 28,000km recorded, is a stunning example of the kind of aftermarket treatment that the performance-oriented CBX owner could apply to the bike. Marzocchi Strada shocks, a brilliant Kerker 6 into 1 exhaust, braided steel brake lines, 39mm Nighthawk 750S forks and 17” front wheel. It’s in remarkable condition, with very little patina to belie the mileage.
