Description

Please Note: This was incorrectly listed as a 1984 model as that’s how it was imported. Based on the VIN (SC082000022), we believe it is a 1982 (“RC”) model.

Additional photos of this 1984 Honda CB1100R are available here for your perusal.

Considered to be Honda’s first homologation special, the CB1100R is a legend among Honda fans, and it was sold only where it raced: Europe, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. Those based in the U.S. became even more obsessed because they couldn’t get it for themselves.

Based on the CB900F, the CB1100R was developed to allow Honda to compete in endurance racing – they won the ’81 New Zealand Castrol Six Hour. It was big and it was heavy, but it was damn fast. The engine from the CB900 was bored out, bumping displacement up to 1062cc. The new engine produced 115 horsepower at 9,000 rpm.

Despite the 518 pound weight, the new one piece frame combined with Honda’s first use of twin-piston calipers and nitrogen-charged piggyback shocks in a production bike made this bike successful on race tracks that utilized fast sweepers over tight hairpins.

Top speed was 149 miles per hour, making it the fastest bike of its time.

This example is VIN: SC082000022.

The odometer shows 81,208 kilometers (50,460 miles).

This is one of the bikes that we imported from a collection in South Africa. Prior maintenance history is not known, however the widow of the previous owner said it had been restored at some point. In preparation for the listing, we had Steve and Angel clean the carbs, install a battery, rebuild the clutch, rebuild the starter clutch, rebuild the forks, replace the steering head bearings, rebuild the brake calipers, and replace the headlight bulb. They note that the brake pads are at 95%/100%.

Modifications:
Cowley exhaust.

Renthal grips, aftermarket bar ends.

Tinted windscreen, HRC sticker.

Cosmetic Blemishes: please see the album up top for all known cosmetic blemishes. Here is a selection:






Inside of the tank:

It is riding on Metzeler Lasertec tires with date codes of 3816 and 3417.


The sale includes one key.
