Very cool thread, I love to see an older machine brought back to brand new condition.

I was almost expecting to see another "Hey I'm gonna hack it apart, put clubmans on it, paint it flat black and call it a cafe" sort of thread . Good to see a bit of history preserved. Did the Cb1000s have the dual range gearboxes like the Cb900s? What kind of fuel economy does it get? Lovely looking bike, I'm really coming around to the 'custom' look as of late.
