Honda Blackbird Cbr1100xx 1999 Candy Red
Used 1999 68,000 miles Red
This auction is for my brilliant 1999 Honda Super Blackbird CBR1100XX in Candy Red. This is the last of the carb versions (the best version). The bike is in cracking nick considering the fact that it is now 22 years old! These bikes are fast becoming classics and are only appreciating in value. The bike has been kept in my nice warm garage during my ownership and it has been very well looked after. The bike looks a bit mucky in the pics as I went out to take some shots and ended up having a lovely 30 mile blast! I have given the bike a clean and it will look nice and shiny when you come to view etc. I have included a shot taken last year so you can see it when it hasn't been ridden in the wet. The bike benefits from the following subtle modifications: Oxford heated grips Road legal Black Widow carbon exhausts Dual USB panel charger wired to ignition Tigra Sport phone holder mounted to stem Tinted screen Goodridge braided brake hoses front and rear. SW Motech top box plate that can be removed when not in use Kappa top box that holds a ton of stuff! Clear front indicator lenses Pyramid hugger Black Pazzo style long clutch and brake levers The bike will also come with: Haynes manual Hein Gericke expandable tank bag Oxford magnetic map holder can be attached to the petrol tank Original screen Original amber front indicator lenses Original exhaust cans Original clutch and brake levers I have owned the bike since July 2017 and have looked after the bike since purchase, I bought the bike with 59000 miles on the clock and have added approx. 9000 miles in that time. I have used it for weekend rides and touring. It has never missed a beat and has been brilliantly reliable as you would expect from one of the best bikes ever built. The build quality on these bikes is astounding and it puts my new Africa Twin to shame! The bike has an MOT until 22nd July 2021 and the V5 is in my name. The bike comes with 2 keys and all the receipts and notes I have acquired during my period of ownership. Since I bought the bike I have made sure that all the key aspects of its mechanical well-being have been sorted. Here's the work I have completed on the bike with approx. mileage: Oil and filter change @ 59k (July 2017) New front wheel bearings @ 60k (Aug 2017) Another oil change @ 64k (March 2019) New chain and sprockets fitted @ 65k (original Honda C&S used with standard sprocket sizes) New clutch slave cylinder, piston and seals @ 65k New Bridgestone BT023s fitted at 65K New genuine Honda air filter @ 66k (May 2020) Coolant flush and new Castrol coolant @ 66k (May 2020) New brake caliper seals front and rear. Fluid change and brakes bled @ 66k (Jan 2020) New fork seals and fork oil replaced by local Honda dealer @67k (July 2020 - total cost £205) The bike runs brilliantly with no issues whatsoever. It might have 68k on the clock, but it should be good for another 68k with regular oil changes. It pulls like a train and gearbox and clutch are a lot smoother than my 2016 Africa Twin. Here's a list of the bits that I should draw to any buyer's attention: Rear tyre has about 1k left and has started to square off Some marks to left side fairing (see pics) Clutch cover has been repainted on left side of bike. Minor scuff marks to each mirror (see pics) Minor marks around the bike - it is 21 years old. Not sure why I'm selling the bike really - possibly lockdown boredom. I would love the bike to go to someone who will look after the bike and enjoy it like I have over the last few years. A test ride and viewing is absolutely welcome and recommended.
