    What a freakin' sweet looking machine. And that youtube video was great.

    I read "CBX" and started counting to six and got stopped at four looking at the picture... That's the best looking CBX model I've seen. Definitely tell your truck to get lost and bring that one home if you can!

    As soon as the fellow is back in the province (end of summer at the earliest), Ill be down there.

    I did bring home this little 2005 Kawi on Thursday, its a quick (I hope) flip. Not keeping it. Just cleaned the hell out of it and its now back up for sale. She's a nice little bike, new tires and runs as sweet as a nut. First $1850 CAD will take her home.

    I actually owned a CBX750F when they were new, and did about 30,000km on it. They were a bit of a stop-gap for Honda after the issues with the VF750F cams/tensioners and prior to the 86 VFR being released. I had a great run with mine, no issues at all. It is a good handling bike (for its age) and used a narrower front tyre than the VF so the 16" front wheel was less twitchy. The engine is a little coarse at lower revs but smooths right out when it hits the mid range and had a really nice in-line 4 howl.

    The engine was used for many years afterwards in the CB750F model, and for some reason Honda Brazil manufactured the CBX for a few more years after they stopped in Japan.

    Good luck with your ownership!

    Tons of those around Houston, Tried to buy a few to flip just like you. The ones I have looked at are usually beat to crap unfortunately. Suzuki has the similar GS500 from the same era with a full fairing.

    This one has a few scratches, but all in all its 100% OEM and cleaned up pretty nice. We'll see if it sells.

    Coincidental and somewhat funny about the Kawasaki. I visited my parents today and my dad was trying to remove the seat on my brother's EX500 that basically hasn't moved in 5 years. The toolbox is interfering with the seat latch you manipulate with the key. It won't come off. We went at it pretty hard today and couldn't get it to budge and gave up when we thought the seat might break in half. I'm putting together a plan to get the friggen seat off.

    Unfortunately, I know it's going to end up over at my place for a once-over and service.

    You should start a half way house for wayward motorcycles!

    Im also going to have look at this CX650E when I eventually see the CBX750. Anyone know what an 83 CX650E maybe worth ?

    Never got them in the States, hard to say. 1500 - 3000 ? depending on condition?

    The CX variants we got in the US aren't really worth much these days (except for the Turbo of course), but they still do have a pretty big following. But most of that is making customs (and then they think they are solid gold). Most of the CXs have been beaten into the ground.

    Yea, I have seen some interesting CX customs.

    Asking is $2000 US and it comes with 2 parts bikes.

    We'll see what kind of package deal I can come up with. (CBX750F + CX650E (+ 2 parts bikes)+ CB1 (Race/Partsbike )+ CB1 Parts and 2 OEM Exhaust systems.

    Gonna be a long wait.

    Wow, another bike we never got. Looks like it has the tail section off the CX500/650 Turbo.

    God, If I had a dollar for all the butchered CX500 "Cafe Racer" hack jobs around Houston I would be rich.

    I guess nobody wanted them so they were cheap. But to cut the tail section off, and call it a "bobber" and think it is worth $5K is delusional.
