If you know about bikes you already know that the CBX1000 had a 6 cylinder 24 valve engine which produced a tad over 100 bhp. Chicken feed by today’s standards but enough to make 130 mph a real possibility.
Never mind that - how great they look right now in 2011? These two were snapped at the Isle of Man TT races back in 1983:
If you really had to go fast on a CBX then a Moto Martin chassis was probably the way to go. The bodywork has not aged as well as the original but I could still live with one of these in the garage. This one was taken at the TT in 1981 on a Kodak 110 format camera. You can tell right?
