Two Wheel Tuesday: A travesty of six cylinders

Someone, please find me a time machine so I can go back in time and prevent this horrible desecration of a CBX. Or at least give this guy a good slap in the face.

    Needs moar wheels. The Beetle in the background would be a good platform to work with.

      …then I had to google 'Honda CBX'.
      /not exactly a motorcycle fan. Not enough wheels, too many daredevil morons riding them, occasionally broadsiding me.

    That engine would be really fun in the beetle. Good power to weight compared to the 1600.

    I fail to see the problem, however I do keep expecting Ponch to show up in that picture.

    Two cylinders are good, but one will do…

    I’d rather have this than one of those bloated toad lookin’ Boss Hosses.

    When it comes to ugly six cylinder bikes, the Rune still has this guy beat.

    Much better than all OCC bikes together.
    Let's pretent it's an engine that survived a bike crash, and the rest of the CBX was totalled.

    Tanshanomi, you really know the way to my heart. Disease, that is. Heart disease. Argh.

    Don't know much about bikes, so let's compare:
    <img src="; width="400/">
    Long chopper forks, custom tank, non-original rear seat and fender. And pinstriping. And copious amounts of chrome. I'm guessing this is the bi-wheel equivalent of chrome wheels, slammed body, and chrome stick-on bits on a BMW M5 or something. I feel your pain.

    Anybody who chops a CBX has a special place in Bike Hell reserved for them. Down there, they have to endlessly gap Suzuki two stroke triple contact points, all three of them, endlessly, then set the timing. Then set the points again. Over and over. Then, set the oil pump and adjust its little cable coordinating it with the throttle. Like, forever. Also, they have to endlessly rebuild Amal Carburetors, and diagnose Lucas wiring problems on aging Norton Commandos. Then, they have to set the valves on the CBX's that they bastardized, and synchronize all six carburetors, ad nauseum, for all eternity. This is not what you want to face in the afterlife, let this be a lesson to all you transgressors.

      There may be extenuating circumstances. Just sayin'…

    I kinda like it. I do mourn the loss of an original CBX, but as someone mentioned above, it could easily have been a bike that was wrecked expensively (or even a motor without frame). It sure beats the hell out of all those TV show v-twin choppers that seem to have replaced the British roadster as the midlife crisis toy of choice.
