Frame no. HB2 00109
Engine no. SC05E2101920
Combining Bimota's state-of-the-art chassis technology with the engine of Honda's CB1100-R, a machine then dominating production-class racing, this ultra-rare HB2 was one of the fastest, most exotic, and most expensive machines of its day. It was built and sold new in this form by the then Bimota importer, though how much the first owner paid is not known. The HB2's first owner was UK-based collector, from whom it was acquired by Chris Graham of Stuart Graham Ltd in March 1991 (see letter and V5C on file). The current vendor acquired the Bimota from Chris Graham in May 1999 and since then it has benefited from considerable expenditure and upgrading. Spondon fully floating disc brakes have been fitted front and rear, while the suspension has been up-rated with a Maxton cartridge conversion for the front forks and a Maxton shock absorber at the rear. Completing the front-end rebuild, the fork stanchions were re-chromed and the sliders powder coated. The rear brake master cylinder and rear suspension linkage have been replaced with new-old-stock parts, and the (calliper-matching) front master cylinder overhauled with a seal kit, while the new exhaust system was supplied by Bimota Classic Parts. Invoices for the aforementioned parts and services are on file and the machine also comes with MoT to January 2021. Described by the owner as starting first time and running well, this highly desirable piece of Italian exotica will have been ridden to the sale.
