. 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.
Yep, it has a 5 speed gear box & a Hi & Low range (city/highway) - works great.
I usually get only around 35 mpg.
