Benny Holm­gren’s 1979 Honda CBX1000

Classic Motorcycle Mechanics - - NEWS & EVENTS -

Hello, I’m from Swe­den. The bike is a Honda CBX1000 1979. The first owner rode it 980km be­fore he smashed into a rein­deer, in the late 1980s. The bike was put away in a cold shed af­ter that. With tem­per­a­tures down to –40ºc, up in La­p­land where the bike was stored, the bike was in a bad shape. I bought it last sum­mer, re­stored it this win­ter and started it up in June this sum­mer for the first time in nearly 30 years. Here are a few pics, be­fore, dur­ing and af­ter restora­tion. As a sub­scriber, I re­ally like your great mag­a­zine.
