There is not even a 1982 rc at barber motorcycle museum, there is only a 1983 rd... I have gone through this bike to make sure all is functional, it is still an exciting bike to ride even 35 years after it was made! It is on recent michelin tires, and everything works as it should. From wikipedia: the honda cb1100r was an exotic honda model that was produced in limited numbers from 1981–1983. It was a single-seat, fully faired sport bike based on the honda cb900f. the r suffix denotes a racing version, however the cb1100r was a road-legal machine produced by honda and offered for sale to the public. It was produced only in numbers sufficient to meet the homologation requirements for the r to be classed as a production motorcycle in markets into which it was sold. It was honda's first 'homologation special' and was raced in the production class racing in most major markets: including europe, south africa, australia and new zealand. It was not sold in the usa. The australasian success of the cb1100r lead directly to the development of the suzuki gsx1100sxz katana homologation racing specials. The model designations are cb1100rb (1981), cb1100rc (1982), and cb1100rd (1983). In 1981, 1050 units were sold, followed by 1500 per year in 1982 and 1983. The 1981 'rb' was half faired with a solo seat only. The 82 and 83 models have different bodywork including a full fairing, aluminium fuel tank, and pillion seat covered with a removable seat cowl. The 82 (rc) and 83 (rd) were largely similar with differences in paint scheme, rear swing arm and front fork design. In 1983 the honda cb1100f was launched that essentially was a blend of the cb1100r and the cb900f, for a broader market. The 1981 cb1100rb had a claimed 115 hp (86 kw) @ 9000 rpm.this bike has some personalized period-correct modifications, the original exhaust has been replaced by a cowley 4 into 1 system, some of the parts on the bike have been polished and chromed, but it shows very well and is mostly original. It was brought into the us by larry conlin, who sadly passed away a couple of years ago; at that time it had not been running for some time, and it did not have a us title. Since then it has been properly imported, and recommissioned for use. I have copies of the original uk paperwork, the vin is correct for a 1982 cb1100rc, so this is the real thing! Regarding shipping this motorcycle, i have shipped bikes all over the world but this is an ever-changing scene. Sensibly reserved, bid to own this piece of classic history; none being built anymore! Any questions please ask them through ebay.
