I have been restoring nighthawks, magnas, Sabre's and Shadows for over 7 years now on the side out of my garage and finally have come across a 1983 Honda Shadow 750C chrome edition.

My question is this,

I have looked and looked over the net looking for any info on the chrome edition and have found nothing what so ever.

Done anyone have any history on these and are they worth more than your standard shadow back from 83 ??

Thanks,

C. Cody

Wow!! That's an awesome bike!

I never knew they even offered them nor seen one...

Pretty to look at, but probably pretty dangerous to ride.

I can't think of an angle in which the sun wouldn't be reflected into your eyes.

Heck, I have a chrome handlebar clamp on my 700 and at certain times of day the sun really glints off it badly.

Cool bike, but I wouldn't want to ride it during the day!

A couple years ago when I was restoring my 1984 VT700 I would come across the Chrome editions periodically. I was able to get a chrome left side cover for my black bike which added a nice custom touch. When I saw complete chrome bikes on ebay, they did demand a higher price than the painted bikes. I seem to remember a nice chrome one for around $3000 but do not remember if it sold or not. I don't know how many they actually made so am not sure how rare they are.

I know I'm 8 years late, but anyway, I came across this post researching info on the one I just bought.

Hopefully I can find more!

I bought mine in 84 (700). Had the chrome kit. Tank, both side covers. They gave me original tank and side covers in the box. So it was a dealer installed kit.
