The “Bol D’or” sticker on the side-panel would suggest a European import but in fact this is an addition and the bike is a UK CB900FA model, registered new on 1st August 1980. Remember when there was a massive wave of registrations on 1st August every year and dealers would release large volumes of new bikes at midnight on the latest registration letter? Well this was one of them. 31,237 miles and almost as many owners later and still looking good. Condition is average to good and although it has been restored to a degree it is certainly not a show bike. Paintwork is nice but some cracks in the plastics are showing underneath, the exhaust is a very good Motad replica of the original system and probably better in every respect, particularly weight. Comes with a good collection of documents including old MOT certificates and a workshop manual.
This machine is offered for sale through Classic Super Bikes and comes from a cherished collection of classics, all of which have been started regularly and used from time to time. They have been well looked after and stored in excellent dry conditions with workshop facilities to keep them in good order. Most are unrestored (paint is an exception in this case) and retain their original standard specification. Some show signs of use and age, all look and sound to be in fine mechanical condition which reflects the owners priorities; classic bikes to be ridden and enjoyed. All great classic machines from a good home at excellent prices. All desirable models too, which with a little more use and attention may well prove to be good investments as well as providing some genuine riding thrills from an era so loved by those of us of a certain age.
