    Default Sooo...what do I do with her?



    http://lifeisaroad.com/plbproject.html

    -Clean up and put her on the road as somebody's starter bike?
    -Part her out?
    -Do something slightly custom? Black her out? Sleek her down? Maybe a contoured cut out steel dragon wrapped around the tank and tig welded on before painting...(to give it some interest and cover a couple dings)

    Is that a CBX... those babies go for a good amount when restored... like 14-20 k..

    Check out Tim's international Motorcycle sales.

    do a search... they restore them...

    They have a hugh following.. probably be like the Valkyries in 20 years.

    don't mean to hijack the thread but it is related.
    after reading both of your posts, I'm thinking you guys may know the answer
    I've asked some Honda dealerships and they haven't been able to answer.
    I couldn't believe they didn't know, but then again, I wasn't too surprised.
    What do the letters mean in the model classifications:
    CB
    CBR
    CRF
    I'm assuming the R is racing, the F probably 4 stroke but the CB and CR I have no idea.

    Okey,,,over in Sweden, a friend of mine has a CBR 900 (a 1984 model in mint condition) and that one is the racer model of the CB 900 ( the wobbler), and I think CB stands for Cruising Bike.

    Long time ago Honda started using CB for their full street models. The CLs were the 'scramblers' with the high pipes. The CBR is the sport bikes. Most folks say the R means race, but I doubt it 'means' anything. The RR models are the race replica bikes that can be run in Supersport classes. The F bikes were the street bikes that were 'sported' usually by a 4 into one pipe.
    Hope this helps.

    Just to make things more complicated, I had two CB900F's. Transverse four sport bike. At the same time Honda made the CB900C, the same engine with an aux 2 speed tranny, the "C" stood for custom.
    Here's the rest of the story. When I bought my first 900F new for $2400. the dealer also had a new white CBX light tourer with bags. I had the choice both for the same price. I've been kicking my butt ever since.

    Shucks, I meant EITHER one for the same price. It's too early in the morning.
