1986 HONDA CBX750F
It’s difficult to know where to start with that paint, so we’ll look past that (if that’s even possible) and consider the rest of this owned-since 1987 CBX. The owner has had the forks rechromed and rebuilt recently, but it’s due a service, the Motad pipe is rusty and the tehnicolour paint distracts from plastics in need of repair. A fair amount of work to do on a bike that’s attractive but coveted by few even in standard condition. A knackered engine in boxes doesn’t really sweeten the deal.
Bloody hell. A bit of me likes it for sticking its fingers up to the world, but it’s hard to imagine anyone wanting to leave it like that. Even putting that aside, they’re slow, horrible to work on, not very reliable and one of the worst bikes Honda made. Hang on – dodgy yellow-painted forks… was this sold by J.moore of Lincolnshire by any chance? The owner must have been a master salesman to get that much for it.
