  3. I would think that in the over four-and-a-half-years since he asked about
    the gasket, he might have found one. Don't you think?

    (Why did you reply to a post from 2008?)

  4. Because he's Rip Van Winkle?

  5. zzz-zzzzz-zork-zz Wha? Oh, Rip! zz-zzzz-zzzz could be, or maybe because
    he's a GGer and doesn't notice the "NN years ago" on the web page.

    Here he is, crossing his bridge! http://goo.gl/6ykkt

    What harm is caused by a late answer? It's not as if this newsgroup is
    overflowing with traffic, and if indeed that head gasket is actually
    available[1], it's a good piece of info for anyone with a CB1000C who needs
    a head gasket.

    If the answer was only supposed to be of use to the original poster, all
    replies might as well be sent by email which would make newsgroups a whole
    lot less useful.

    [1] I really doubt that there are any to be easily found since Honda say
    they are not available- but there's always the chance there is one sitting
    on a shelf somewhere that didn't get sent back to the Honda warehouse years

  7. I don't know the answer to that, but I'm always suspicious of a post with
    "MISMATCH" in the path :).

  8. I have had not luck with servicehonda in getting a gasket for an 83 CB1000. It is not as obvious as you make it out to be.

    Take a look at the date I posted my message. It was almost five years
    ago. Five years ago you could probably still buy that particular
    gasket from Honda. It's not surprising to me, that not every part for
    a 30 year old bike that was only made for a single model year is not
    available any more.
