• Previously Restored to a high standard • Excellent Performance • Clean example of a rare bike • Soon to become MOT and Tax Exempt
After experiencing huge success in the motorcycle industry with the introduction of the CB750, subsequent success in the circuit racing industry and from suspension technology developed for their motocross endeavors. Honda took all the lessons they had learnt and put them into this new CB900f.
Named after the Bol d’Or endurance race this CB900F2 Bol d’Or example of the CB900F was built for the European market going up against other performance bikes.
It’s release was met with praise. With its strong steel frame and improved suspension, it was one of the best Honda motorcycles built for the road. This meant that it would have no trouble in competing with the crop of European bikes currently on the market when it was introduced.
With the success of this first-generation Honda revived the name in the early 2000’s.
There is some history with the bike including documentation to show previous MOT’s, the V5, and original blue logbooks. The bike currently has a full up to date MOT, due to its age it will also soon become exempt to both MOT and tax.
At some point in the bikes past it was subject to a restoration which included painting the tank and frame, however there is still some original paint in some areas.
This bike comes with the original owner’s manual, old blue logbooks detailing the previous owners, old MOT certificates and a workshop manual.
Looking at the interior details on this bike they are great. The seat is in good condition showing some slight signs of age as some of the seams on the seat have started to dry out. The grips are also in good condition and the instrument binnacle isn’t showing any signs of wear.
The exterior of the bike is in great condition. It has been subject to a restoration in previous years allowing the bike to shine today. The tank and frame have been repainted but there is still some original paint left in parts of the bike. A truly stunning example of a vintage bike.
There isn’t any paperwork to support any mechanical work being done, however the bike starts easily. When you’re riding it pulls well and handles well which is excellent for an older bike. The best bit is that it sounds great when you’re on it.
The Honda CB900f was an important bike in the motorcycle industry as it truly cemented the reputation of Japanese manufacturers as makers of excellent bikes. With the bike specifically aimed at the European market you can be sure that the bike will be able to tackle anything from an English B-road to the German autobahns all of which in relative comfort.
This bike is a very clean example of a CB900F2 Bol d’Or. With the previous restoration you are able to enjoy the retro styling in all of its intended glory.
