A timely bump! Literally just 2 days ago I got this car from storage mode around side of the house and parked it up next to my CB3. Needless to say after sitting for 6 months it fired straight up! Put some fresh fuel in and took it around the block.

Needs some new wipers and I need to address the water in the rear light. I shall do this over Christmas break. It reminds how far my other CB has come from stock. And how amazing 4ws is!

Well this will be a big bump for this thread. Not been on the road properly since 2014!

I had regularly started it and drove it round the block, but it started to look like a ship wreck, So after some encouragement I trailered it to work to give it a proper sorting out.

Full detail, inside and out. rebuilt the brakes, fixed any issues. Runs like a dream. I have some videos of it doing its 4ws mastery and will get them uploaded. I got it Taxed and MOTed so fully road legal and have been driving about. So different to my CB3!

There's a super clean one that just popped up for sale through an importer in Texas. They want at least $10k for it which is pretty fair. Yours is very clean for its age and it's awesome you got yours sorted out.


I'm beginining to wonder if the 3rd gen Prelude 4WS units actually fit on a 4th gen sedan. The parts nearly look indentical between the two chassis.

Do you work for a racing outfit? I see you post up a lot from a paddock.

The 4ws has alot of extra differences compare to a regular 2ws cb. Nothings impossible of course, but it would be alot of work. What would be useful is using a 4ws steering rack on a 2ws. And blocking off the prop connection section, as the ratio is quicker. That would improve the handling in any cb.

I got mine for less than £500 5 odd years ago. If it ever gets near 10k in the next few years that would be a good few hundred well spent lol.

Yes work for a race team, we have Porsche and Aston Martin GT4s that we compete in British and European Endurance Championships. Dispite seeing and working on alot of high end cars, i still love working on the cbs.

To me, it's so awesome that the CB had technology that was intended for convenience and comfort, that high end cars are only just now starting to adapt for performance purposes (or at all, haha) - like the active engine mount and 4WS (even though it was probably more of a performance enhancer for at least the Prelude and other Japanese sports cars of the time). The innovation is a big part of my love for Honda. I want to pick up a 4WS 4th-gen Prelude one day to see how that feels in the canyons, but I do worry about maintaining the rear-steer components. Most of the main parts are discontinued over here.

Glad to see you got this rare classic back on the road again, will do good for future preservation as well compared to just sitting collecting dust. As long as you keep it away from salty roads in the winter of course lol
