The 1979 through 1982 Honda CB750F had the double over head cam (DOHC) 750cc motor pushing out 72hp at 9000rpm. In 1979 Honda also released the CB900F with a longer stroke version at 901cc, and hotter cams for 95hp but at 8500rpm, to be offered only in the USA from 1980 to 1982. In 1983 the 1062cc CB1100F came along based on the CB900F, further establishing Honda's strength in the market with 108hp at 8500rpm via still bigger bores, hotter cams and a rack of Keihin 34mm CV carburetors. The chassis offered more stability via 39mm forks with air assist and three way dampening, an increased rake, two-piece handlebars and the now 150mph speedometer was ever tempting, still with a 5-speed gearbox and a wet weight of near 600lb. Braking was enhanced with Honda's TRAC system – for torque reactive anti-dive control.
Tubeless tires were new also, now on one-piece cast wheels (for the USA). High performance was promised and indeed met for Cycle World testing at 11.13 seconds/120.48mph for the quarter mile and 141mph for the half mile earned it the accolade of the "fastest stock bike ever tested". The rest-of-the-world models offered a riding position that was more sporty than the US model, with rear-set foot pegs and lower clip-on handlebars. These alternative parts were originally offered through US Honda dealers as a complete "sport" or "continental" kit.

The bike offered is customized with four individual air filters, one for each carburetor, and aftermarket exhaust, Corbin dual seat and has lost the original striping on the tank and bodywork, but it is otherwise believed to be close to its original specification. It reportedly starts and runs well. The CB1100F was listed for one year only, 1983, and so this example is a rare find.
