The CBX Book II

Old Bike Australasia - - GOOD GEAR -

By Ian Foster Self Pub­lished. 440pp hard cover RRP: $110 in­clud­ing Postage in Australia To or­der con­tact Roland Skate of the CBX-6 Own­ers Club of Australia ([email protected]). Al­ter­na­tively you can con­tact the N.Ir­ish Au­thor, Ian Foster, di­rect at [email protected]­ga­tor.com. The Book costs GBP38.00 plus ad­di­tional Ship­ping from Hong Kong. As the ti­tle sug­gests, this is the sec­ond book by Ian Foster on the mighty Honda CBX, but as the first book sold out within six months of pub­li­ca­tion, Ian felt he needed to go again. Nat­u­rally the sec­ond take con­tains much fresh ma­te­rial, with con­tri­bu­tions from own­ers and en­thu­si­asts from ev­ery cor­ner of the earth. The CBX com­mu­nity is very much a global net­work of six cylin­der en­thu­si­asts, but not all are com­mit­ted to pre­serv­ing their mo­tor­cy­cles in orig­i­nal spec­i­fi­ca­tion. There are lit­er­ally hun­dreds of ex­am­ples of the CBX in highly mod­i­fied form (no­tably Roland Skate’s fa­mous racer here Down Un­der), plus CBX en­gined cars, go karts, trikes, end­less out­fits, and so­los in all man­ner of in­di­vid­ual ex­pres­sion. I found the his­tory sec­tion re­ally in­ter­est­ing (nat­u­rally) and there is also a very com­pre­hen­sive bib­li­og­ra­phy de­tail­ing vir­tu­ally ev­ery book and mag­a­zine with CBX in­for­ma­tion or sto­ries. I can well imag­ine that no CBX owner will want to be with­out a copy of this book, which, like the mo­tor­cy­cle it­self, is huge.
