The seller of this bike aptly describes it as “over-restored.” The story is that the restorer worked at a chrome shop, so any parts that he didn’t either have NOS or couldn’t buy new were chromed! The current seller bought it from the restorer (whom I will now call Chromefinger) and has kept it in his living room as a display bike for the last eight years. It’s different, but do you like it?
The seller has only removed the bike from his home once, and that was to take it to AIM last year (where it won a 1st place trophy in an unnamed category). Mr. Chromefinger used to run a parts shop for Honda CL/CA/CBs, so he had lots of parts ready to go when he restored it. The work took 3 years and it included a verification that the engine performed as new as it had less than 100 miles on it. The last time this bike was started was mid 2005, and the original restorer won trophies at 18 different shows with it.
