Yes, you'll see the odd one here and there.

Cyrus, do you ride an MT01? (avatar pic)
If so, how do you like it?
My bike is so much faster than yours that I dare you to ride it, you lame little turd. Do you have the balls to ride this BOTTOMLESS PIT OF TORQUE?
~Hunter S. Thompson
really nice bike though... tons of low end power and handles its self well for such a big bike...
didnt you have one your self?
I know a fellow who's got 2 of them, he bought one from his Dad's local Honda dealership. The other he inherited from his older brother.
F**K i cant even find one in craigslist...
i know in Europe CBX1000 are dirt cheap but how much do they go for on our side of the coast?
I wouldn't call this dirt cheap. If you have a pipeline to ones that cost less you should tap it. I'm not sure if Rob is still at the Honda Center is still there but when I was in town he had one on the road.
This one costs less and it's just down in Cali.
There are at least two people on BCSB with them.
They've always been a bit of a cult bike and one of the few old timers that it's considered OK to modify.
Not powerful by modern standards, but in their day they were the Hayabusa of the late '70's. They were soon eclipsed in the early eighties for performance but few bikes have the presence of that monster large motor (physically).
A really pristine one is still only likely to cost about the same as a brand new litrebike. Project bikes can be had for about $3k but you can soon spend double or even triple that amount making them nice.
There are about 15 CBX owners in the lower mainland.

A friend of mine had two of them, sold the good one - there is stall a project one around (I think -- I could ask)
you looking for one?
2nd gear in new west has a cbx for sale. $3800 i think.
The next few years will be interesting times....
If you wanna say something, speak into the mic. It's right above my balls.
The collectors seem to be resonating towards the early '79 model. The '79 had a higher state of tune engine, with styling cues which differentiate it from the,,,, IMO,,,, less attractive '80 CBX, namely anodized silver Comstar wheels vs black for the 80, as well, the 79 came in red or silver, whereas the 80 came in silver or black. A keen eye should spot a 79 tail piece as one not having the little key locked luggage container that the 80 model had. I sold a NOS 79 silver tail piece still in the box to England early last year for 1000pounds, I think I gave the guy a deal, it's unobtainium. I still have most of a complete exhaust system, new, as well as a few carb sets, and used switchgear.
The 81-82 models had the bike turn into a sport tourer from a superbike. Better suspension front & back, windscreen, panniers. Definitely the rarest model was the 81, but it has the least inspiring paint color, ash grey. The '82 had a really nice pearl white with blue accents, good looking bike, probably
#2 for collectability.
A well running CBX is a joy, it's all about the engine, the engine sounds brilliant, the induiction roar of an inline 6 is very cool sounding. The rest of the bike doesn't match up to the engines draw factor or technical advancement of the day. If you buy one, get one that's been restored or in very good condition. They are getting expensive to restore, as parts are becoming obsolete. You'll spend most of your time dealing with the carbs, and changing alternator brushed, the bike's two weak links engineering wise.
