Lot 235
1981 Honda CBX


Selling on Saturday


Honda electrified the world when they released their transverse six-cylinder motorcycle in 1979. It is one of the smoothest engines ever built. They had many years of experience from their '60s Grand Prix racing days with Mike Hailwood riding for them. In 1981, they changed the suspension and eliminated the double rear shocks. The only color offered was a grey with graphics. Now a fairing was fitted to the front. Sales were not good. The Japanese Yen was strong against the dollar. They began stacking up in warehouses, so Honda began donating them to trade schools and even destroyed some. Consequently, the later ones are now among the rarest units! This unit has excellent paint. The six into two exhaust has been changed out for a six into one system. The saddle bag has a slight crack. It shows 47,501 miles.
