    2003 Honda CBR1100XX Blackbird

    I've posted here before but the email notifications were not working. I finally decided to sell my completely stock 2003 Honda CBR1100XX Blackbird. Getting to old to ride. <g> *** Less than 5,000 miles on the bike ***. That's crazy, hasn't even hit the 5K mark yet. The original superbike. <g> Last year imported and with EFI. This is NOT a starter bike, but rather an appreciating classic, original sport touring superbike. Rides smooth as glass too. Nice road bike in my opinion. You will not find another one of these anywhere that has less than 5,000 miles on it. Excellent condition. I bought this bike in Tucson Arizona a copule of years ago from the original owner. He didn't have the desire or ability to get her up an running. Seems a critter ate and or chewed on many of the wires in the harness and other wiring on the bike. I replaced and repaired all of the damaged wiring in a professional manner. Soldering them properly along with heat shrink tube. Bike has been thoroughly inspected and only new OEM parts were used as necessary. The fuel pump was replaced, fuel relay. coil wires, spark plug wires, cleaned the injectors, fuel rail regulator (and anything associated with the fuel system), thoroughly cleaned the inside of the fuel tank, synch throttle bodies, new air filter, all fluids have been changed, cables lubed, bleed brakes and checked the link system which is working properly, rebuilt forks fork seals etc., new front brake pads, rear brake system master cylinders, new battery and brand new shoes too, Dunlop Roadmaster 3's. Less than 50 miles on the new tires. Bike is in very nice shape throughout. Bike was also thoroughly inspected by AZ Motorcycle Services in Mesa Arizona. There is a very small dime size ding on the gas tank. The original owner said it was damaged during shipping and they discounted it. There are four minor scratches on the left side of the fairing, each about 1/8" long. They are very hard to see since they've been touched up by the previous owner. Plus you have to be on your knees to see them. THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL BIKE. Bike has always been stored in the trailer or garage. No free rides. Firm on the price considering the incredibly low mileage. Bike is located in Phoenix Arizona. Will not haggle on price. No Paypal, cash only ... $5,000.00

    JWW,
    temptig... but the shipping is too much to Oz. Good luck in the sale. One thing... how old is too old to ride? I am 66 and ride every chance I get. I just obtained a new bike (well,... not new but been stored a bit like yours-just not a BB) and love every minute I feel the wind across me when I am out of the city. Even riding in the city is better as I can lane filter here (not sure if it is legal where you are) and it makes travel time much shorter. So... how old is too old to ride?

    regards

    I had the bike sold to someone on the East cost but the buyer backed out at the last minute. Anyway I'll be 75 in November and still in good shape but I have serious back issues from someone rear ending me two years ago otherwise I'd still be ridding. I've put tens of thousands of miles on my bikes over the years and have traveled throughout the USA and Canada several times. My first bike was a 1971 Kawasaki H1 500 Mach III that I bought new in 1970. I sold the H1 in 2018. My fist trip to Canada from Arizona was on the H1. The Blackbird is the last of my bike collection.

    Wow, you started on a widowmaker. And you still made it to 75! Creds. Slight difference in handling and braking from first to last was there?

    ... when the HI hit about 5k it was like a rocket ship, smoke and all.

    Hey, JWW. The "71 H1 was my first street bike back in the 70s as well. But I didn't keep mine nearly as long. They were not the most dependable of machines. I ended up trading it for a VW beetle. I did a fair amount or touring on it too including a trip to California on Hwy 101. My buddy had the '69 H1 which is the other bike in your picture, I believe.
    Good luck with the sale (and your back).

    Hey JWW.....Please contact me, I want to purchase your Blackbird. I am in the Tucson area....just a couple of hours away and now that temps are down a bit....would even be a nice ride. I will try to send you a PM.

    EDIT: have tried to send you two PM's but do not think they are making it for some reason.... Hopefully you see this soon.

    I just paid $5250 for a mint condition with 5700 miles. This is a fair price, good luck.

    Mate of mine is 81yo and still riding (Multistrada 1200 2013 model from new)...... and still leading tours on bikes both overseas and around Aus....... He has to be careful not to throw his back out but otherwise handles his bike and traffic as well as anybody half his age and he has the benefit of age/experience over youth and speed....... we don't waste time getting lost or get caught for stupidity or errrr, (touch wood) cr..h, and never go past a great coffee shop . He still takes a good effort to get past when he is in the zone....... gives me hope at 61yo for a long future on my bike.

    I'm 76 and still riding my BB almost daily-- though I admit to being pretty much a fair weather rider these days. However, 2 years ago my brother (he's 71) and I took a bike tour in the Alps-- 850 miles in 5 days-- Brenner Pass, Timmelsjoch, Stelvio, etc--fantastic.

    Update: Bike is still for sale. Dean85 backed out for some reason. The bike is a sweet deal and ready to ride as is. You won't find another one like this. Price is more than fair. I have a clean notarized title guys. All I need is a rider and the cash (no bank wire, no Paypal, no certified checks, cash only).

    Cheers,

    Hopefully I will stop kicking myself in a short time for doing this.
    I suspect that whoever does purchase this bike, will be smiling for years.

    You won't. <g> Barn finds are rare nowadays, that's why I bought it. If it wasn't for my bad back/neck (8 herniated disk) plus my short legs, I wouldn't even be on the forum and out ridding instead. If you change your mind, you have my number.
