1981 Honda CB900F Super Sport “Tokyo Nights”
This is a complete, ground up, modern, custom rebuild of a classic motorcycle. This bike has won a local vintage Japanese best in class award and is ready to win many more. Recently featured on Bike Bound.
Tokyo Nights is suited with Showa USD forks, billet triple clamp, Triumph 675R swingarm Ohlins shock which the frame was completely built around. With the removal of the rear triangle section of the frame, a modified Ducati Monster subframe called into action along with a designer, Luimoto seat cover. A completely new wiring harness, using numerous sealed connectors, was crafted around Moto-gadget’s m.unit blue. A Dyna 2000 ignition system with Dyno coils to handle the spark. A CBR600RR permanent magnet rotor/stator was recruited to supply all electrical power along with a lithium battery hidden underneath the handcrafted seat. The cylinder head was given street porting with hand lapped valves. The crankshaft was lightened and balanced by the team at APE Racing in Rosamond Ca. New Forseti racing Camshaft chains were installed. The exhaust expels through a Delkevic 4 to 1 header with a Yoshimura RS3 Titanium muffler to add the di regueur tone. Carburetors are retro fitted Mikuni RS34’s, of course have been completely gone through, rebuilt, rejetted, and synced.
So many different cool and small details on this bike but here are some of the most important features..1991 CB400 fuel tank was grafted on. Head light bracket, front fender brackets and muffler bracket, sprocket cover are handmade, one-offs. All engine cover bolts are stainless with, being hand turned, tapered heads. Majority of all other fasteners being compromised of titanium to help keep the wet weight down. Aprilia/Brembo wheels with EBC rotors are shod with new Continental tires. The clip-ons are completely adjustable as well. The latest Brembo Corsa Corta RCS19 front master cylinder with calipers from a ZX-14R handle the stopping chores, literally one -finger stopping. A matching clutch perch was also acquired. New oil cooler with 8AN hose and fittings. A 3/8 offset sprocket, RK x-ring 525 chain and a 40-tooth sprocket round out the drive system. Extras include, fully adjustable billet rear sets, Rizoma grips, reservoirs and turn signals.
This is a truly magnificent piece of work. Well over 500 hours invested. . Any other questions, do not hesitate to reach out.
