    Not sure Jim. If its like the the VF1000R's you can split the cases without touching the top end (it was pretty straight forward really), but that may not be the case with this. Ill have to check into it. The timing chain may preclude that I dont know.

    Maybe Cap'n 80's would know if a case split with the top end intact is feasible on these ?

    Then Again, I may decide to just go through it all and restore it top to bottom. Paint is nice but not perfect, some decal scratches and other things. Depends really if im gonna keep it or let her go next year. No point in stinking a grand + into it if I end up letting her go. I seem to churn through bikes like socks these days.

    I've got a service manual if you need it. Looks like all bar 4 of the case half bolts come in from the bottom, the remaining 4 from the top in the area below the carbs. Looks like no bolts through the cylinders.

    Just for giggles, here is the other turd I dragged home yesterday with the CBX750. its a CB1 Track Bike that has sat in a crate for the last 5 yrs. truly horrible and will likely just get parted out. Although if/when I get it to run it will make parting it out hard. No title with it, so If I did restore it Id have to get an Adffidavit done to get an ownership.

    Can't get the gas cap to open, tank is likely rusted inside and is full of rancid gasoline.

    I spent 15 minutes with it tonight, I connected a battery to it and pulled the tank off, shot a bit of gas into the carbs. It cranked over ok, coughed a few times but didnt start.

    lots of melted rubber on those tires, she was run hard and put away smokin'

    lots of good parts on it though. came with 3 sets of pipes (including the ones on it) , 2 OEM sets and a TwoBrothers. I have box of parts for it too, so its all there, just not financially viable for me to restore this one I dont think.

    If i was closer I would take that one on!

    Probably a money loser though I would have to agree.

    I am so VERY tempted to restore it Jim. I'm going to ask about what it takes to get myself an ownership here locally (Small town office may make it easier).

    I have a spare tank, spare tail etc for it and the only thing missing is the rear fender.

    Sometimes I think my name is "Silly Bugger" , and I wish it was "Billy Sugar"

    Its amazing what a title will do for motivation and general outlook on a possible resto project. Suppose its best to inquire either way, selling or keeping.

    Pretty interesting knab tho. If you do decide to sell or part, Id be interested in a tail section. I'd like to get a complete 2nd set of bodywork painted and Im short that piece.

    My buddy bought the last orderable CB-1 tail from Honda years ago. As a joke, I replaced the new piece with a piece of shit from one I restored. He hasn't opened the box in 25 years, its in his garage or attic somewhere. His is sitting on my shelf. Maybe I should pull it out and torture myself.

    Well, quick trip to the municipal town office and I had 2x Affidavit's in hand (one for the track bike and one for the spare frame), then on to the Service Ontario office and 10 min later left with 2 title's/Ownerships in my name.

    I hear a restoration calling

    I have a nice stock CB1 already, Ill have to decide if I do this one stock or do a custom Full Fairing version (CBR400 or RS250 fairings)...likely just go stock, cheaper.

    This is my other one except now I have the stock handlebars back on it, didnt like what the PO had done with the straight bars

    Sorry fella's as I way hyping myself up for a CB1 restoration, my buddy swooped in and made me an offer I couldn't refuse, so its going to a new home next week, He will restore it, he's top notch at this game.

    I've got the CBX and the GSXR to keep me busy this winter and besides, there are 4-5 months left in the year for me to find another project (or two) , I have my eye on one if its still there in a couple of weeks.

    I don't know where I will find it, but there is probably a CB-1 in my future. That stock one you have just astounding to look at.

    Need to finish the Hawk first.......

    He’s not lying… parts are very expensive.
