I won’t share to much on Honda of Chattanooga’s history in this post but with being in business for 50 years it has allowed the owner to acquire quite the collection of Vintage Honda motorcycles here at Honda of Chattanooga that he grew up with over the years when his dad was running the business.
I decided to pick 2 out of the collection to share a few pictures with and information on. If people like seeing and reading the information on them I will pick out a couple more and do them on a weekly basis. Check out the other post from today on the 1982 Honda CX500T Turbo here at Honda of Chattanooga in our Vintage Honda Motorcycle Collection.
– 1979 Honda CBX1000
We’ll start with a little bit of history on the Honda CBX1000. The CBX 1000 was introduced in 1978 as the first production Honda motorcycle with an inline 6 cylinder engine. Honda had developed a racebike prior with a 6 cylinder engine, the RC series. Honda made the CBX1000 from 1978 through 1982.
Now on to the details regarding the 1979 Honda CBX1000 we have here at Honda of Chattanooga:
We sold this CBX new and bought it back from the original owner. It only has 5,708 original miles and still has the original rear tire. Original paint, with no sun fade and or scratches etc. Factory HondaLine engine guards. Fluids are drained every year and it has a dry cell battery, so it only has to be prepped to be ridden.

The bike is all stock – including stock mirrors, original seat with a rare color matched factory tail piece with glove box. The glove box was only offered in 1980 for both Red and Black CBX1000’s. I don’t know how we got one in silver but it is a OEM factory color matched part and did not come on any other 1979 models that we know of.Everything we have here at Honda of Chattanooga is For Sale so if you’re interested in some more information on the CBX1000 please contact me.
