Everything should be SUPER!

I think everything would be better if it had "SUPER" in front of it, don't you? Who wouldn't want to own a SUPERBIKE then? I would!
I just picked up this clean low mile '83 (one-year only) Honda CB1100F, the first of the SUPERBIKES. it came from the estate of a racer and factory tech, had some Gucci Mikunis on it (which are gone) and a possibly super rare Bassani 4-1 pipe, motorwork? Maybe.
I gotta get some carbs, a battery, side covers, and some gas...if you have any side covers let me know...is your Dyna SUPER (and not a superglide...)?
Did i mention it's 108HP stock?

  5. Not a Honda. Many m/c journalist consider the original superbike to be the Sportster. The 1959 XLCH was a Hot Bike in it's time. Others may say the elder Vincent, but the Sportster was it for the masses.

  6. It's the 1969 CB750. It changed everything when it came out.
