The Honda CB-1 was a wonderful standard in a time of replica racers. Originally built for the Japanese market, it was a beautifully balanced motorcycle that lost out in an American market that was obsessed with having as much horsepower as possible.

Cycle World called the CB-1 “a great motorcycle that never found an audience,” — in hindsight, it’s easy to see why. A healthy 55 horsepower was enough to take this 400-pound bike up to 118 miles per hour, and the upright seating position lent itself to comfortable commuting or canyon carving. General consensus at the time was that this bike the perfect “street weapon for the masses.”

Manufactured in June of 1989, this example is VIN: JH2NC2706LM101210. The seller acquired the bike five years ago.

The odometer shows 4,552 miles.

The seller reports that he has rebuilt the carbs within the last year and installed new tires. Additionally, he notes that the bike has been stored in a climate controlled environment at 65 degrees.

Braided stainless steel brake lines.

Bar-end mirrors.

Battery tender lead.

Inside of the tank:

It is riding on Bridgestone Battlax BT45 tires.

The sale includes one key.
