This is the rare 1050cc Honda CBX SS (Super Sport) with very low original miles and recent tuneup. Notice the low OE handlebars, and SS throttle, with the cables running up from the grip. Typical of the CBX, the owner let it sit, the carbs plugged up, and it wasn't ridden for decades. I purchased this bike several years ago, and just got around to restoring the carbs, adjusting the valves, timing, and making it run like new. Complete new exhaust system. All of my work is meticulous, following the Mike Nixon method. If you are not local, I'll work with you and your shipper to load the bike onto their vehicle
