1982 Honda CBX Six
The 1980’s were a special time, or that’s what nostalgic people feel. This 1982 Honda CBX Six came out the same year that David Letterman first showed up on Late Night. So with bikes and late night, things were good.
From the seller
Since I purchased the bike, I have replaced the original tires, installed new fork seals and added a NOS clock and NOS temperature gauge. I’m 65yrs old, 5ft 9in and the bike is just too big/heavy for me to ride safely, so unfortunately I must sell it.
This is the first listing that I have read were the seller used the text of the previous seller, to sell the bike again. Is there something below that caught the seller’s eye and believes the new buyer should know?
From the original seller, not this seller.
Offered for sale here is one of the nicest, all original 1982 Honda CBX around. This is a one owner bike (me), with 2186 actual miles. All original and unrestored. I purchased this bike in 1985 brand new, rode it to my current house and have had it here ever since. It’s always been covered and garaged, never been in the rain. I never rode it much (I rode enduros for 15 years, but wasn’t much of road rider). I’m a retired mechanical engineer and have always kept it in tip top condition. In recent years only rode it 10 or so miles a year to keep everything in working order. No rust on the exhaust or in the tank. Seat is original an flawless. It was always wintered with stabilizer in a fresh tank of gas, then the gas drained a replaced in the spring before being run. It’s had a few oil changes and oil filters and a few batteries and that’s about it. The brake fluid was replaced with silicon fluid once and the plugs were replaced with Iridium plugs a few years ago. The original plugs will be included with the sale. The tires are original and have most of the tread remaining but show a little cracking from age; so the new owner will probably want to replace the tires before any serious riding is done. The title is clean and the original tool kit, air pressure gage and manual are included. The bike is not brand new, of course, but is almost as close to new as you will find. I would think this bike is museum quality and would be a treasured item in any collection. It is difficult for me to part with it but there comes a time when one must let it go. Whoever buys this bike will get a chance to experience one of the finest sport bikes ever designed; truly an engineering achievement – strong running, marvelously smooth and wonderful sounding.
This 1982 Honda CBX 6 cylinder came out the first year of David Letterman. He is retiring this year, but by the looks of this bike, he could ride off into retirement with a very clear and powerful sports cruiser. BB
