Let me start with a quote from the seller. “THIS IS NOT A NEW BIKE & IT IS NOT A RESTORED BIKE IT IS ORIGINAL & ORIGINAL IS ONLY ONCE!” When it comes to classic sport bikes unrestored is my kind of thing, bikes are only original once. As soon as that frame is stripped and powder coated you have made a really neat unoriginal bike. I do like a clean restore but original really gets my revs to redline. The seller claims it’s in excellent mechanical & cosmetic condition. Perfect for a collector or an enthusiast with only 10,300 miles. If you were riding one of these in 1979 nobody could catch you.
Here’s the info from the seller:
This 1979 Honda CBX is in excellent mechanical & cosmetic condition. CBX is an unmolested survivor with under 10,300 miles. The ‘79’ is the most sought after & collectable of the CBX’s, as it had the highest output of any of the CBX’s.
When introduced in 1979 Honda’s CBX had more cylinders, camshafts, horse-power, speed and acceleration then any consumer bike every brought to market. In Cycle World’s January 1979 issue, they quote “The CBX is still the fastest bike we’ve ever tested.” “howling down the drag strip in 11.46 seconds with a terminal speed of 117.95 mph.”

The BIN price ($9395) is not as high as I have seen them in the past and at the time of this post the bids are up to $5k with the reserve still in place. You can see that the controls are showing some age and the engine has started to get a little patina but its very clean and original. These bikes get a lot of attention in every group with their wide inline six cylinder and chrome 6 into 2 pipes. I once told my wife that a CBX was coming down the road when it was at least a mile away because I could see those pipes glistening in the sun. 🙂 Did I mention the silver ones are my favorite? I envy the person who wins the auction, I hope that person enjoys their new investment.
