The Badest, Fastest, Best Looking Kickass Turbo CBX In My World||
Let me tell you a few things about this bike. I started with a stock frame with a few mods done to it. Mike Donndelinger in California did most of the custom work. As most of you know he is one of the best. He has done a lot of custom work to many bikes in the past as well as his personal race bikes. Some of the great work he has put into this bike include:
A custom Swing arm, 1 quart extension oil pan, which is a great mod to any CBX. The front forks are kick ass. They are what he has on his race bike equipped with Race Tec emulators. Works rear shocks, Custom Dymag magnesium wheels so it will work on a CBX (light as a feather). Custom built aluminum parts to hold the PM 4 piston front brakes, floating front disc, Spiegler SS braided brake lines, gold front fork tubes and rear sprocket. (Just a touch of class) Custom built brake stay built by Preston Marks (352-494-7904). The turbo motor was built by Preston with a little help from me. (Check out his article put on CBX World). Carrillo rods (TIMS), Black diamond valves (TIMS), NOS Honda balanced crank, Flat top low compression piston custom made for me (TIMS has them now), chrome molly studs (TIMS), late model NOS set of cases, NOS head, NOS cylinder, heavy duty clutch springs in a Prolink clutch basket, All HONDA gaskets (Took forever to find them), full Honda sport kit, black paint work done by TIMS. Their paint work is the best that I have ever seen. (I think the black makes the motor stand out). 8 inch front headlight (Suzuki), 1100F Oil cooler (will go to a 13 row Earls later). A Prolink rear dual piston brake system. Check out the 300km speedo (180MPH), Corbin seat (TIMS), Old time finned cam covers and crank covers and just a touch of chrome to make it shine. The pipes are ceramic coated and custom made to fit the Honda sport kit. Note the wire that is by the front master cylinder for my radar detector. I’m also running AVON AM23 V260 front and rear tires.
I can keep on going but this just lets you know what this bad boy is all about. The rear vanity plate reads 79-TRBO.
I will be adding a front stabilizer when I find one that I like. Based upon what’s in this bike and how it runs it should be close to 200 hp (I will dyno it). At this time the bike is running 13 lbs of boost.
The bike needs a front faring to deflect the wind, but I will not put one on. I hate the way they look. I like and tried to keep the bike looking like a CBX and not a recreation of a new bike. I wanted an old bike look with as close to today’s handling as I could get.
I have had this bike to 154mph and it will keep on going but it will not be with me on it. I could let someone else do it. I could think of a couple guys!

Mike Nixon's CBX Maintenance Booklets
Veteran factory trained technician Mike Nixon has written an excellent series of booklets that walk you step by step through troubleshooting and repair procedures for some of the more common problems associated with the care and feeding of your CBX. The booklets have been receiving positive reviews from CBXer’s around the world and are worth checking out.
CBX carburetor booklet takes the reader step by step in disassembling, cleaning, reassembling and adjusting a set of Honda CBX six-cylinder carburetors. Highlights include detail about the various circuits, and how to eliminate the troublesome air cut valve. Proper float level adjustment, avoiding common pitfalls, and even how to blueprint the accelerator pump - tutorials such as these make even the beginner a carburetor expert.
CBX valve adjustment booklet reveals how to use the factory shim tools, how to do the job without having a box full of valve shims, and even the adjustment of the often troublesome cam chains. Also included are line drawings of critical areas, so that the reader gains the confidence the first time out to do an excellent job.
The CBX charging booklet offers a close-up look at testing the CBX charging system. The reader is instructed in testing for bad wires and connectors, and checking common failure points in the system such as the rotor and brushes. The simple yet instructive diagrams, and an easy-to-follow troubleshooting flowchart help take the anxiety out of troubleshooting the CBX charging system.
The CBX shock booklet demonstrates how to remove and replace the Pro-Link shock's seal, and correctly change the shock damping fluid. Also included is how to adjust the damping fluid level to suit your conditions. Get the booklet and gain the confidence to not only do the job but do it right.
Finally, the CBX ignition troubleshooting booklet takes the reader step by step through finding the cause for a no-spark condition. It begins with very important voltage checks, then proceeds through a simple yet conclusive three-step technique for accurately pinpointing the cause of the trouble. Also included are line drawings for better understanding, making this booklet a valuable aid for ignition system maintenance.
Any or all of these booklets can be yours for just $29.95 each plus $4.05 for USPS Priority Mail for domestic shipping.

We specialize in fuel system restoration. We have done probably a dozen CBX
carbs in the past, and even the Chrome CBX in Cycleworld shown in the TIMS
article last year or so.
Our restoration service is reasonable and guaranteed to be right. This is a full
time growing business and we are serious about providing solutions.
We have come to find that our best description of our services is “The parts
department you WISH your dealership was.” We know vintage bikes. I was actually
a Registered Honda Tech from 85-90 and have worked on many o’ Honda in my day.
We have the skills to develop a specific carburetor for your application. How
about FCR’s for a CBX? They would be expensive but we could provide that
We have developed CBX air tees made of Brass for the carbs, we have carb kits
for all year CBX’s documented.
We specialize in discontinued OEM parts for all brands especially Honda.
Give us a try.
