This may be the first "production" bike off the line, but I guarantee it was not the first one built. The first ones are used to proof the processes and are used as test mules. I was down at MMI in Phoenix a few years back and they get quite a few of these preproduction bikes. They had a whole line of Honda CBX bikes. Serial numbers ######001, 002, 003... Doubtful this one will have much collector value though... Unless it was a winning race bike or owned by someone famous, there just isn't all that much special about it..
