I have a 1982 Honda CB900 that has been stored in my garage for the last 6 years and I would like to have it restored. It has 900 miles and is in very good shape. Can you give me some idea of what I need to do to get the bike restored and approximately what the cost would be?
If it’s in great shape it probably doesn’t need to be restored.
I’m sure sure you’re just referring to freshening it up and getting it back on the road.
Well, you could take it to a local shop, just be prepared to have a huge billfold with you. Or you could have some fun doing the work yourself. Those CB900’s are great riding bikes – very comfortable and powerful.
It needs a good cleaning and lube, oil change, gas flush, carb clean, and a fresh battery. Depending on how dry the tires are you may or may not need to replace them right away. Other than that it likely doesn’t need a whole lot. It’s a very low mile bike. Give it a good once over and you’ll be back in business.
