SHOW / MUSEUM QUALITY!
99% original.1997 Honda CBR1100XX Blackbird,.Surely one of the finest examples of Honda's brilliant first year CBR1100XX you'll find anywhere!
Never dropped or crashed, always garaged, always in my possession and all but 30 or so miles put on by myself. Pics speak for themselves, this bike is cleaned and buffed but not restored, it has led a easy, sheltered life. Lose yourself in the mirror shine finish of the all original Black Metallic painted body parts. Seat was only used for three weeks and is in near perfect condition with only a minor scuff or two. During the first month of ownership the seat was replaced with a Corbin Gunfighter, and then put into cool dry storage, where it has remained until now. Only a couple of very minor modifications were made in the life of the bike; (1) Carbs were cleaned and rebuilt with the main jets being increased up a step in size for it's life in North Central Texas. (2) A momentary microswitch was installed in the fairing cowl into a single small hole, and used for a garage door opener trigger. Other than the carb main jets, microswitch, the normal wear items, i.e., batteries, tires, oil, and filters, and of course the approximately 16,800 miles on the clock, the bike remains as Mr Honda's factory built it. Even the chain and sprockets are original and still in great shape.
The factory exhaust system remains intact and has never been removed. The current and third set of tires to be installed on this Bird are Michelin Pilot Road 3's which now have about 1,400 miles on them. Recent maintenance includes: New air filter, oil and oil filter change, new battery, coolant flushed and replaced with Honda Coolant. I have the original owners manual and tool kit, Honda Service Manual, original receipt where the bike was purchased, and the original temporary dealers plate issued when new. I am a former Honda/Suzuki Franchise dealer and a Honda/Suzuki Certified Mechanic and I am the only one to take a wrench to this bike since taking delivery from the local Honda Dealer in 1998. This Bird has been a fantastic bike, with it's super smooth 4 cylinder and one of the smoothest shifting gearboxes in all of motorcycling, Zoom Zoom!
