Description Honda CBX1000, 21K, 6 cylinders, excellent condition, 9 months warranty

This is an auction for my UK registered CBX1000 Prolink
which comes with a comprehensive warranty. 
These bikes are now 30+ years old and it’s vital you consider one with
at least some provenance from recent years and assurance of how it is running
and riding now.
The Honda CBX 1000 was the most extraordinary air cooled
engine ever produced when it first appeared. In 1981, Honda switched gear and
headed the CBX into the sport touring category 
adding a sleek fairing as well as Pro-Link "single-shock" rear
suspension and air-adjustable front forks. Honda also used dual stainless-alloy
ventilated front rotors (a first for the motorcycle industry).
I bought the bike in November last year at the same time
as a Z1300 as I’m now old and I wanted a 6 cylinder bike  to enjoy the classic track days that are
being put on across the UK and Europe. 
I’m at Angelsey on 30th May so see you there maybe!  Having ridden both bikes I’m going to keep
the Z1300 as it’s better suited to a track day than the fully faired CBX.
I bought the CBX from Cannon BMW dealership in Suffolk
and the bike and the owner were well known to the dealer. 
As you can see from the pictures, the bike is excellent
and original condition.  It has covered
just 21,592 miles.  I have MOTs from 1999
through to 2006 when she was then taken off the road and dry stored until she
came back onto the road in July 2014. 
The bike has had very limited use since 1999 and was believed to be held
as an investment.
MOT history on file:
May 1999   18,327 miles
April 2000   18,654
June 2001   19,071
June 2005     19,838
July 2006       20,865
July 2014     21,260
Nov 2014    21,332
When I bought the CBX, Cannons completed the 24K service
as per the Honda specification and used genuine Honda CBX parts some of which
had to be ordered from Japan.  Cannons
did a great job.  Part of the service
included the carb balance and  valve
clearance check, a mammoth job, and many needed replacing which they did with
genuine Honda parts.  One of the photos
shows the bike on the bench with the work in progress.    I have the supporting paperwork from
Cannons which details all the work done in the 24K service including the valve
The result is that the bike purrs beautifully and rides
really, really well.
The bike has a new exhaust and 2 new tyres as well. The
discs are all true and the battery is charged as it sits on a trickle charger
in my garage.
I bought the bike with a comprehensive warranty from
‘Customer Protect’ which I can transfer to the new owner.  It runs until December this year so you have
9 months of worry free motoring. Details here:
The bike is HPI clear on any check you wish to do – there
is one on file that I did.
Finally, there are 2 original keys, a service manual and
other bits of paperwork and invoices from the 1980/90ss.
Anything to do to her?
My Ebay reputation is important to me so there is some
paint starting to peel on the engine casings and the clock was disconnected
back in 2006 when it was dry stored. 
I’ve spoken to the previous owner who said he did it himself to save the
battery.  It simply needs the connector
pushing in but my hands are too big to get in the fairing compartment! There is
a scratch on the front left hand fairing near the mirror and the odd rusty nut and bolt but she is 33 years old.
This is an honest appraisal of the bike.  You could put a cover over her in the garage
for a few years or ride her or both. 
Either way, the value is only going to go up.
Viewing of the bike is very welcome and test rides too
with a £7500 cash deposit and proof of your insurance.  I do not wish to part ex or swap for anything
else thank you.
The CBX is a rare bike and does generate interest but
genuine buyers and enquiries only please. 
I am of course open to sensible offers above the start price.
Collection within a week of the sale please.  £200 non refundable deposit within 48 hours
and the balance by cash on collection or bank transfer, not Paypal due to fees
they charge.
