Property of the late Alan Windsor
1979 Honda CBX1000Z

Just as it had in the preceding decade with the four-cylinder CB750, Honda stunned the world again in the 1970s, introducing the Gold Wing super-tourer and the outrageous six-cylinder CBX1000. Launched in 1978, the latter was not the first six of the modern era, Benelli's 750 Sei having beaten it by a couple of years, but it was by far the biggest and fastest. Weighing around 550lbs and with 105bhp on tap, the CBX was good for 130mph and scorched through the standing quarter-mile in around 12 seconds. For most owners though, it was not the CBX's performance so much as its on-road presence that mattered. Even today, few bikes can match it for charisma, visual appeal and, above all, sound.
Believed imported from the USA circa 1993, this desirable, twin-shock example of an increasingly collectible classic was purchased by Alan in June 1998 (bill of sale on file). The V5C states two former keepers and that the machine was registered/used overseas. Additional paperwork includes older V5/V5C documents; a quantity of MoTs (most recent expired 2013); and an owner's manual. Last taxed in 2013, and with a total of 13,808 miles showing on the odometer, the machine appears to be in good cosmetic condition but will require re-commissioning to a greater or lesser extent before further use. Its mechanical condition is not known.
