#BOLT40: A Honda CBX1000 built for a world champion

One thing we rarely talk about in the custom world is the ability of the rider. But maybe we should. Because a client who takes a Gixxer to track days and runs fast laps is unlikely to be happy riding a retro roadster with Firestone tires and a flat spot in the middle of the rev range.
So when we heard that Bolt Motor Co. had built a bike for a four-time World Champion, we were intrigued. Their client was Jorge Martínez Salvadores, known as ‘Aspar,’ and the bike is a 1981 Honda CBX1000 inline-six. It?s over 40 years old, but undoubtedly well-sorted.

?Aspar? is an official Dorna MotoGP Legend, alongside guys like Agostini, Doohan and Hailwood, and today he runs the Aspar racing team. The man with the tricky task of designing a bike for him was Bolt boss Adrián Campos, who has something of a head start in this territory: he also runs a racing team, but focused on F2 and F3 cars.
The first job was to choose the bike. Adrián and Aspar settled on one of the finest old school muscle bikes of all time, the mighty CBX1000.

Adrián is well aware of the history of this machine. ?The CBX1000 was designed by Shoichiro Irimajiri, an engineer also responsible for the bikes that Taveri and Hailwood rode when they won the 1966 and 1967 championships,? says Adrián.
?Irimajiri became managing director of Honda, and led the CBX project. It has a generously sized engine suspended from a steel chassis…and that six-cylinder is difficult to access. Just ask our mechanics!?
Despite those difficulties, the immaculately restored air-cooled 1047-cc motor looks like new, with six gleaming Keihin VB-61A carburetors fitted with custom intakes. And even though the engine is only a couple of inches wider than the four-cylinder CB750, it looks extremely imposing.
There?s just over a hundred horsepower on tap, which is plenty enough for Aspar. Back in the day, Cycle World managed the quarter-mile in 11.6 seconds, and topped 130 mph for the first time on a production bike. Those figures are still respectable today.

So Bolt have left the engine internals alone, and restricted their drivetrain mods to a lightened flywheel and new end cans?with three free-flowing and slightly curved mufflers on each side of the CBX.
?These are handmade exhausts,? says Adrián. ?Aspar let us advise on aesthetics and finishes, but the sound and sensations he was looking for were very clear to him. His face when he heard the bike for the first time was priceless.?

The suspension is an even bigger departure from stock. The original 35mm fork tubes were undersized on the CBX, especially given that the engine is ?hung? from the top of the frame. So Adrián and Aspar spun their Rolodexes and went hunting for MotoGP parts.
The forks are now Öhlins units with a corresponding magnesium front wheel, donated from an Aprilia MotoGP racebike. The carbon fender is a one-off, but the Brembo front brakes are donated from a Yamaha MotoGP bike. The hoses are Goodridge: ?All machined, tuned,...
