An evolution on the CB900F, Honda’s CB1100F was a fast standard that was sold for just one year – but for that year it was king of the hill. Cycle World called it the fastest stock bike they had ever tested in a review in January 1983.
Thanks to a 108 horsepower, 4 cylinder/4 stroke engine, the CB1100F could hit 139-144 miles per hour, depending on who you asked. In the US, the bike had a different seating position than the rest of the world, as well as an optional chin fairing. There were two paint scheme options, though the more common one was the Pearl Shell White/Candy Pearl Maui Red variant you see in front of you.
With that said, none of the description of the stock bike may matter to you as this example has been seriously customized by Thomas Westby. Highlights of the work include Ohlins shocks and a lot of parts from newer Hondas – VTR1000 forks, RC51 brakes, F3 front rim, 900RR rear rim, and the swing arm from a Blackbird. The odometer reads about 31,000 miles and the seller says this bike is near mint – it’s not clear how long ago the work was performed.
