  1. I bought a new CBX1000, shortly after they were introduced, the retail price then was around £3000, they were being offered at a cutprice £2000, I had a mandatory Honda upgrade to the fuel system almost immediately to stop Hydrauliking??? cant remember. It was a wonderful bike but I almost had a big one on a ride out, and I sold it. I replaced it with a. CB900F, which was a far better handling bike, (for me) The CBX didn't sell well in the early days, How things change! your bike by the way looks stunning.
  2. It does look superb but I don't like all the POP rivets all over it!
  3. Pauper Pete, just back from the local food bank. No luck today rabbiting with our Jack Russel, god life's tough. Does the heater valve work easily, or is it as resistant as most of them are, I found the Taxi heater valve the easiest to operate and cheap at £18, but they look Naff. If its a working one I will be in a position in a few days to go to £20 for the old dog, this subtle method always works on the Antiques road show. Have you got 4 Philidas nuts Andrew? Best Pete
  4. Doesnt matter its a Belter!

  12. Hello Mark, is there a reason that you don't wish to fit MX5 seats? I have done this on my TR6 and Spitfire, they are a very good and not expensive alternative, the seat runners can be made to fit original TR floor attachments too. just trying to help.
