Standard-style bikes from the 1980s are slowly becoming more appreciated by collectors and riders alike. One such standard that we’ve always been fond of is the Honda CB1100F.

A one-year-only model, the CB1100F came in Pearl Shell White, coordinated with Candy Pearl Maui Red or Candy Pearl Capiolani Blue. In stock form the bike wore a black four-into-two exhaust, but this particular bike has been upgraded with a Vance and Hines street megaphone. According to the auction, it also wears pod air filters, and new factory jet kit and a new gold O-ring chain. It’s said to have just 16,500 original miles on it, and appears to be in quite nice condition.

To the editor or who ever this should be directed, I have just purchased a "museum quality" 1982 Kawasaki KZ1100A with the "FULL" Vetter touring factory installed hard baggage/ and frame mounted fairing, the saddlebags, which are fiberglass, remove to become suitcases with a twist of the ignition key, and the rear cargo box, with a passenger backrest built in is also included! It came with an aftermarket sidecar, which I removed. One: I would really like to see an article about the entire "KZ Lineup" from the KZ900 through the KZ1300, as I believe that this to be the first true Japanese "Superbike" My KZ1100 is shaft driven, air suspended, and 108 HP/140MPH! I would (as well as I'm sure a LOT of other owners of the late 70's through early 80's KZ owners would be overjoyed to read it! If you would like to see pictures, I can, through my email, give you my photobucket link as it would also make a great picture subject for suck an article, having only 29,000 miles on her, and as stated, being "almost" class one condition, or at least a very nice class 2! Thank you, Glenn Merideth!
