1994 Honda CB1000. The Big One 

If you have aversion to cruel ergonomics and lots of plastic bodywork you will love this modern classic. Unlike the average mid-?€™90s standard. there?€™s nothing standard about this one.

Forged-aluminum triple-clamps carry meaty. 43mm Showa cartridge forks. which hold the front axle in hinged. quick-release clamps. Twin Showa shocks came with remote reservoirs. A pair of £ber-rigid. 40 x 90mm extruded-aluminum main beams formed Honda?€™s most massive swingarm yet. Meticulously refined and exquisitely finished. the CB1000 is more than a stripped-down CBR1000.

Though blessed with the same basic architecture as the 998cc four in its plastic-wrapped brother?€”oil-cooled alternator. gear-driven balance shaft and so on?€”the naked version got slightly less compression. milder cams and 34mm constant-velocity carbs. Bolted into a double-cradle steel frame. the 582-lb. result is at least 30 lbs. lighter than an equivalent CBR1000F with 5. 8 gallons of fuel on board. though it makes 97 ponies at 8500 rpm. Dead-smooth up to 100 mph. The rest of the bike is nearly flawless.

Rider accommodations are exceptionally roomy. Suspension and brakes are superb. It takes some muscle to stuff this much motorcycle into a tight corner. but precise steering and bank-vault stability add up to an XXL good time in the twisty bits. The big guy puts freeway gas stops 230 miles apart if you?€™re frugal. Maintenance chores are a snap: Screw-type adjusters make setting the valves every 8000 miles easier than the shim-under-bucket alternative.

My CB1000 is a low mileage beauty that has been left stock.  This bike has been adult owned and well cared for. The carbs were recently cleaned. rebuilt and synced. The bike starts easy. idles nice and runs great. There is a couple of small dings in the tank that the camera could not pick up.   Looks like someone lowered the handles bars and dinged the tank. Very small hard to see. Have a good look at the pictures. you will not be disappointed.
