1979 CBX Brochure cover



This is the last CBX I acquired, in 1991.  I "needed" it so that my collection would be complete.  It has the fewest miles, and while not the best looking one, it sure is the fastest.  It is shown here with an Australian built Pipe Master 6 into 6 exhaust - it sounds sweet, but it is very LOUD.

I'm on my 79 CBX at a roadside scale south of Calgary, AB, Canada
The scale reads 360Kg, equal to 794 pounds.



In the spring of 2005, I sold this bike to  Lou Bottini.  He and I installed a new Sport Kit, a Corbin seat, Kerker 6-2 pipes, an unobtainium CalFab swingarm, Works shocks and fork springs, and a Telefix fork brace.  The results can be seen in the photos to the left and right.
