1979 Honda CBX #1

VIN# CB12005433

Candy Glory Red

Ever hear of the bike that was "All Engine"?.  This is the first year Honda CBX 6 Cylinder.  This is the Honda CBX 1050cc 103 hp rocket ship.  Hondas' marketing literature touted it in a couple of notable ways.  

First...The engine is a stressed member of the frame.  There is no cradle underneath which exposes the full size of the engine.  The engine is tilted forward 30 degrees for more leg room.  

Secondly, Honda claimed that by moving the alternator back behind the cylinders, that the engine is almost the same width as their CB750 engine. Anyway you look at it, the engine is the most prominent part of this bike and is very intimidating looking. 

Pictures below are of the bike with the Kerker 6-2 Header.
