I believe that's standard for the CB900C, it's a split transmission (hi/low)

The Honda CB900C is a "custom"-styled standard motorcycle produced by Honda from 1980 to 1982. The slightly modified and larger displacement CB1000C was produced in 1983 only. It is a derivative of the DOHC CB750K at the supposed requests of the American consumer, according to Rider Magazine, March 1980. It is equipped with a handful of features that are unique for its time. These included air assisted suspension front and rear, shaft drive from the GL1100 Goldwing of the same time period, and most notably, a dual range sub-transmission that allows the operator to "split" any of the five gears in the main transmission for a total of ten driveline ratios. The CB900C is closely related to the Honda CB900F and the 1983-only Honda CB1100F (both derivatives of the CB750 line).

One of my friends purchased one of these off eBay about six months ago. His was in very good running condition and paid about $2K. They are a classic ole bike. $300- does it run? It had an unique front suspension set up that prevented the front end dive under hard braking.

The high low transmission is interesting. You never go 1 to 10 in a row.

SO is there a cable or switch on the bars, or by your shifter?

Basically all its good for is shifting through 5 gears under low gearing drive then once at speed shifting the drive shaft to high gearing. Otherwise you have no acceleration.

Yeah the basic problem is we would need to be traveling at 300+ MPH top speeds to justify all the additional gearing otherwise your just shifting too much.

Regardless of how this work it appears the bike is gone. I never did get a response back from the owner and the ad is gone. Oh well.
