Yup, I too was close to buying a CA77 heel-toe shifter it was only $600-700 usd a few years back. Not a looker but worked fine. Then a restored one...almost. Not sure why I didn't pull the trigger.
Still CB's missing on ebay.
Reading an old CB77 UK test claims back in the day, cruising at 75-80 mph is not pushing a CB77, what do you think? Seems a spot high for today. What's a fair cruising speed for a CA or CL?
Thanks

Cruising speed for my CA 77 is about 45-50mph, limited mainly by the suspension and brakes and not the engine. Pre pot holed roads you probably could have buzzed it along at around 60-70. I must say these days I enjoy riding the quiet lanes around Surrey at a leisurely pace, my racing days are over and no longer feel the need to extract maximum performance from the old Honda.
