Post Sale Update: This CB sold for $12,000 plus the 7% buyer’s fee ($12,840 all-in) on Iconic Motorbikes.
It was heavy, but it was fast. In fact, when Cycle World tested the CB1100F (an evolution of the CB900F) in January of 1983, they called it the fastest stock bike they had ever tested as it was able to hit over 140 miles per hour. This example has been modified to “handle like a modern one, but retain the 80’s look.”
Wet weight was around 580 pounds, but thanks to the 1,062cc, 108 horsepower motor you could hit 67 miles per hour in first gear. The US got an optional chin fairing and a slightly different seating position than the rest of the world – though that doesn’t apply to this example (VIN: JH2SC1105DM005317) as it features the Euro headlight and rearsets. The seller acquired it as a basketcase and then went to town with upgrades, including a 1123 big bore piston/ring kit, Hindle stainless steel 4-into-2-into-1 exhaust, 1992 CBR600F2 wheels, front calipers, master cylinder, and forks with Racetech springs installed, 2012 CBR600RR swingarm and rear caliper, 2014 CB1100 right and left controls, custom CNC aluminum fuse cover and bladed fuse block, superbike bars, a repaint, and 150 mph gauges from an older CB. The one issue seems to be that the rear brake doesn’t do much as (according to the seller) the rotor is too small.
