For Sale: 1982 Honda CBX Supersport
The 1980s were wild years of experimentation for Honda. They tried practically every engine combination, number of cylinders, arrangement and displacement throughout this period. The CBX was a notable example: 1000cc, six cylinders, DOHC, four valves per cylinder and six carbs made for a very memorable motorcycle.
The Supersport variant of the CBX added the sport-touring fairing, lowers and paint-matched, detatchable hard luggage. This was offered in two colors: The white/blue you see here, and a darker gray/black combination. The white bikes seem to be more desireable by the slimmest of margins, and as such fare slightly better at auction.
From the seller:
This 1982 Honda CBX Super Sport is a pearl white color with black and blue colors, everything is OEM. There is not any aftermarket parts on this bike at all. It has a low 28k easy ridden miles on it. It has always been well maintained and garaged. Adult ridden. Never laid down, no crashes but it does have some tiny paint scrapes on the back luggage.
This CBX Runs very strong and SMOOOTH. It needs nothing but a rider. It has new tires, brake pads, spark plugs, battery, air filter, oil and oil filter, brake fluid, carbs have been gone through and sync’d, all the master cyl’s and calipers were rebuilt last week. The gas tank has been coated a few years ago to prevent rust. All brake lights, driving lights, signals, high and low beam work.
Entry into the wide world (and we do mean WIDE) of the CBX is not prohibitively expensive – although the collector value of these bikes is on the rise. Today’s example has been very popluar with the bidders, and the price at the time of this writing is just north of the $5k mark with the reserve still in place. The bike shows clean with no major issues noted, making the current price good money for the bike.
. This one looks pretty hot, and if you want a shot at this six-cylinder piece of history you’d better get in quick!
