    1983 Honda CB1000 Custom


    I've been riding and enjoying this bike, but I really don't need it, and I'm trying to make some space. If someone wants it, I'd sell it pretty cheap or trade it for a dual sport or something vintage.

    CL ad: https://boston.craigslist.org/nos/mc...?lang=en&cc=gb

    Pasted ad:
    Just back from a 2000+ mile trip around Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, this bike is ready to ride!

    Pretty cool one year only bike. One of my favorite parts is that it looks a lot like an FXR or FXRT, so the Harley guys wave and then get really embarrassed when they see the Honda badges.

    The good:
    - Excellent condition. Couple of scratches, but overall in great shape.
    - New fluids everywhere (motor, gearbox, differential)
    - New tires
    - New battery
    - Carbs cleaned, rebuilt and sync'd
    - Pod filters (jetted accordingly; comes with airbox)
    - New starter
    - New radio (bluetooth, aux, usb, am/fm; hidden in left pocket under leather flap)
    - New speakers
    - All bags lock with shared keys
    - Everything works as it should
    - Runs dead straight down the highway at 100mph.
    - 44-48mpg consistently
    - Unique dual range transmission works great
    - Clean title

    The not-so-good:
    - The lock that secures the top box to the bike is broken. It still locks closed, but is secured to the bike with safety wire.
    - The previous owner accidentally checked the "not actual mileage" box on the title when he signed it over. To me this wasn't worth the paperwork to rectify, but I can work with you on this if it's important.
    - The yellow and white "SM" sticker on the left side bag is covering a quarter-size hole. It's filled with resin too, but that's what the sticker is covering.
    - The "tail light" idiot light on the dash is lit, indicating that the tail light is out. It's not. The idiot light is just...an idiot.

    I think that's about it. Hop on the bike and ride it anywhere.

    Looking to get $2400 out of it, but let me know. EDIT - $2k
