    The propaganda:

    This 1982 Honda CBX Supersport was delivered new to Rick Case Honda in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, and has since been stored as part of a collection in Florida while still in its factory crate. Power is from a 1,047cc inline-six paired with a five-speed transmission, and the bike is finished in white with blue and black graphics. Factory equipment includes a full fairing, hard saddlebags, an adjustable rear monoshock, dual ventilated disc brakes, and an oil cooler. This CBX shows 1.2 miles and is offered by the original dealer, disassembled in its factory crate, with a Manufacturer’s Certificate of Origin.

    The CBX was produced in Supersport livery for 1981 and 1982, and the Pearl Altair White scheme with blue and black graphics seen here was available only in the final year of production. Factory equipment includes body-colored lower fairings, lockable hard saddlebags, a two-up seat, and passenger grab rails. Components remain boxed and affixed to the steel crate with plastic straps. Photos of corrosion on the fuel tank can be viewed in the gallery.

    Comstar wheels measure 19″ front and 18″ rear. Suspension consists of an air-adjustable fork up front and a Pro-Link aluminum rear swingarm with an air-adjustable monoshock that features three rebound settings. Braking is from dual internally-vented front discs and a single non-ventilated disc at the rear.

      I saw only a few of these around, in the day. And never one with fairing and bags.

      Would be fun to ride, huh?

            I came close to buying one the first year they came out 78?79? , Never knew they had bags or fairing either .. They were a beast , guy I knew that was a wrench said valve adjustment was a Royal PITA .. I see them for sale in cycle trader whenever I look .. Saw one around here a couple years ago , guy had restored it ..

              Amazing that in ‘82 Honda was already pushing the envelope with an inline 6!
              Ive owned a lot of Bikes from all over and while the Japanese bikes never had a lot of “Soul” ( except for a V65 Magna that was kinda scary powerful and quick), they were always all bulletproof. Really amazing, for bikes back in the 70’s and 80’s.

                    If I remember right, Honda, in those years, clung to refusing to offer motorcycles with cast wheels, clinging to their "Comstar" steel stamped wheel designs. It was still going in 1982.

                    Well, these bikes are out there. 24,000 made in '78, then numbers dropped down to around 4,000 units per year in '79, '80, '81, and '82.

                    This on in the pic was recently sold for $4,400.

                    Beautiful ride, tho!

                      I had a V65 Magna. That bike was scary quick, especially for the body style. Had the snap and power of a racer. But the stance was half cruiser. Mine was an '85 in the maroon.

                        A guy over here got his leg taken off with one a them six cylinder Hondas. Dummy, cranked it going around a corner and slid into some vehicles parked along the street. I must say, alkeehol and drugs may have had a factor in the matter.

                          In 1980, I'd sold my CJ-360, and we had a newborn at home. Traded away my Spitfire as well. (It was 26 years before I owned another motorcycle)

                          But here was my dream ride. A late '70's CX 500. Water cooled... jugs stuck out like a Moto G.

                            Here is one of my first bike when I started with HONDA. Then moved up to the 550.




                            Then moved up to another class but in less than a year, I removed the forks. My chopper did NOT have SPRINGS.

                              I like the dog. If he can't eat it or f**k it, he pisses on it. I can get behind that
