That particular CBX looks soo clean and well put together that 'd probably give my left nut for it, if he was inclined to sell.



Then I'd take it home, put it on a dyno in my living room, set up a really good recording rig and then just rev the pee out of it 24/7 for your listening pleasure. Once I was out of recording media, I'd take it out of my living room, put on some all black Bates leathers, a white Bell helmet and wring its neck through every tunnel and other echo chamber like structure I could find.

Here's another compliment: Nice work.

I bought is new CBX in 79, and the sorriest move I made was selling it. One of the few Japanese bikes that had a soul. It had style and those 6 cylinders in-line looked incredible. It sounded like a jet fighter on the gas. Smooth and fast. Loved that bike.

Mike, can you still get OEM parts for a CBX, or is it aftermarket and boneyard hunt?

No more Harley factory support - Rich King and Jennifer Snyder are history? I think this is the last year for the Sacramento Mile. Just 2 or 3 years ago the grids were still mostly HDs. What's the point of the Formula USA series anyway? Why not just bring the AMA flattrack series out here?



Eddie Mulder and Gene Romero should combine their efforts and expand to include the Harleys and have a big vintage flattrack series. There's no grease and oil mixed in with the dirt that comes off the KTMs and Hondas.

Oh, man, you really don't want to know the answer to this question. I didn't own one in '79 and I don't want to know the answer to this! It'll just make it that much harder to pass up the $3,000 fixxer uppers than can be found on ebay.

I lusted after the CBX as a youth. Of course when they came out I wasn't old enough to get a driver's license.



It seems like some decent examples can be had for 4 grand or so.



What are ya waitin' for?

It cost motorcyclists $5 to park at the Del Mar Fairgrounds (down from the standard $7 for cagers) and an unbelievable $17 to get into this event.



I will never be suckered into this event again. Walking the bikes in the parking lot was worth more than the racing or the vendors!
