Yikes!

The way I've been "penetrated" by ebay lately, I wouldn't trust such a low asking price, or anything else about the numbers.

Re: What's wrong with this picture?

Shew! Just checked my garage and my bike is still there! The only reason I say this is because this is very similar to my 929. With some engine mods which I have done (Boring and pistons w/ higher compression, and cams, with head work) I was able to achieve such numbers. But not with a small price tag. The motor work and parts alone are nearly worth the small fortune he's asking!

Re: What's wrong with this picture?

That would be crank horsepower as Honda advertised them

Do unto others, before some prick does it to you!

If reffering to me, a link has been set up. If you do a search on some old posts, you will find a post titled "929cc to 980cc," it's in there.
