    My latest online find - Custom CBX Digger

    So I have turned my window shopping for bikes online into a paid gig (how much I am getting paid is not important, or enough to even mention). The latest thing I found and wrote up is this back in the day custom Honda CBX on eBay, and in France of all places - Online Find eBay Edition ? The Joy of CBX | RideApart

    It probably works fine as a city and freeway cruiser. The riding position is nowhere near as radical or uncomfortable as it first appears to the eye. It has stock pegs and bars that are only a little higher and wider than the OEM USA bars. The more I look at it, the more I realize it was built by a guy who knows his business when it comes to fast Jap choppers.

    The bike looks lighter than a stock one, and has a Moto Martin ( I think ) box section swingarm.

    You could launch it very hard with the longer and raked front end.

    For it's choosen role, it probably works quite well. In fact I think it would ride pretty well at 90MPH on smooth freeways.

    It's worth 10K USD+ in Europe easily, if it has got a valid title, just out of the rarity and survivor factor. Motorcycles of this type and standard are far less common in Europe than in some U.S. states.

    Danger, is my business."
