Cool Honda Cafe Racer...

I was with a buddy at a 350z meet at Andretti Speedway(Gokart track). Inside they had an indoor go kart track, games, pool tables, along with a lot of racing memorabillia. Including a Redbull Honda 954(I think that's what it was).

But I saw this bike in there. I wasn't sure what it was but I thought it was interesting...

Not sure about tech but if you notice there is an IHS approved part on the bike.

The real wheel cover(If that's what you call it) is Carbon Fiber

The only thing I noticed on the wiring... now a days they wire the nut... those header bolts looked to be wired not the nut.

Either way, its a sweet old school bike.

The CBX was the bike to have in 1979, until the Suzuki GS1100 came out in 1980 and beat the CBX in every category. Well, except for exhaust sound. After that, Honda turned it into a sport tourer.

Three others I can think of are the Goldwing, KZ1300, and Benelli 750 Sei.

safety wire is to prevent bolts from loosening. the caliper mounting bolt should be safety wired to prevent the bolt from turning counter clockwise. the header bolts are wired just wrong...

i'm not looking forward to safety wiring my bike this winter.
