I'm lusting to get back riding again! Looks like I'm gonna have to wait until next season though ... dammit. still healing.
still recovering - back to crutches, then walking with a stick, then running - then hopefully riding again!

Whoah, I knew you'd been there (or here), but I didn't know you had a house in the Phil. Good luck with all three, ceemes.




Back to unobtainium (unobtainia?), IMHO the Sprint is the best-looking of the sport tourers. Good lines and a great engine.

1. you buy the CB400T, bring it home and enjoy it for the summer. Heck, ride it until next spring.
2. Mike & I move back to Calgary. We fly to yours and then ride the Hammer and CB back to Calgary.

Only if you promise to bring me some TMW shirts when you fly down. And I'd have to start looking into international shippers.

Found this ad locally, though. Just not sure what bike Honda had in 1981 that had a 6 cyl 500cc motor....

Must be a typo on engine size or number of cyls. Only 6 cyl Honda back then was 1000cc.

some sweet bikes in this revived thread... there is a guy in town with Hyperrr's 1982 Katana 1100 lust-machine --- it looks pretty nice, and i just saw it again the other day. I remember seeing it parked at the local "big" mall last year too. Next time maybe i'll have my camera. Something tells me it was for sale last year for a stupid price.

Anyway, I'll throw a Ducati Supermono into the mix, and the recently introduced, limited/custom street legal version would be pretty cool too. And in keeping with retro, a Bimota V-Due.

BTW, a Britten V1000 trumps most toys for me, but a much more readily available and somewhat nostalgia-inspired race toy is currently being built by Eskil Suter...

£3,850.00

HONDA-CB1100R-CB1100F
Model Year: 1981
Type: Super Sport
Engine Size: 1,062 cc
Mileage: 20000
Power: 115 Bhp

Here we have the iconic honda cb1100rb, the original production racer and one of only 1081 built by hrc to take the production race titles around the world. This they did and were so successful that they won everything and were unbeatable.They were raced by Joey Dunlop, Ron Haslam and Wayne Gardener in the uk in 1981 but if you are looking at this then you probably know all this This one is all original and has coverd just 20k miles in 30 years. It shows some wear and tear as you would expect and is a good useable example but is not a show bike. Last owner had it for 18 years and only coverd around 3kmiles in that time. Taxed and tested for a short time and has new tyres, original exhausts have been repaired but are still ok.

For Andrea--

Found this perusing some websites for the exhaust headers I need, thought you might be interested. I know it's not your old 400, but it looks like that'd be a hoot to ride around town, would definitely get some looks and lots of questions.

Mike, found you another KZ750...almost. It's a KZ650, but if you want, feel free to send me the money and I'll hold onto it until you can come down to pick it up.
