The Way We Were – 1979 Honda CBX1000


Chris Schafer from the USA bought his Honda CBX1000 new in 1979. He shared this Polaroid with us: “In 1984 I did a cross-country trip from Ohio to Los Angeles, I was going to the Olympics to spectate. This photo was on a stop, we were on the Bonneville Salt Flats.” Chris still owns the bike today.
