    Funny you should say that. I was about to post saying that a Honda 125 would be near enough as quick, much better on juice and ten times more reliable.

    Most definitely, I had a Honda CB100N when I was 17 and that poor little bike suffered massive abuse, miles and miles of thrashing it to within inches of it's life and it just kept going and going. It only let go twice, once when the cam chain slipped the sprocket and once with a broken piston ring. If I'd treated my bigger bikes that way they wouldn't have lasted 5 minutes.

    I rode my old Suzuki GSXR1100 slabside up to my brother's place in Birmingham from Brighton years ago, I honestly thought I would never walk without bow legs again lol

    Rode my Yamaha SZR660 300 miles to Cornwall and back a week later when I was in my mid fifties. I was OK with a few minutes rest at fuel stops. Did it again on a Suzuki GSX600F a year or two later in pouring rain all the way. Got a bit soggy here and there.

    I came across this old classic a while back, completely original except for consumables. The owner told me it had been stored in a dry, heated garage for over 30 years and he picked it up for peanuts in a house clearance sale. I wouldn't be surprised if it's the only complete original CX left.

    Bet it's not!

    It's a later one, with the Comstar wheel spokes concave side outwards and detailed in black.

    Quite right but it's still best part of 35 years old, those original CX silencers would have rotted through within a few years from new. It makes you wonder how many little gems lay hidden away in garages and sheds.
