I noticed that the Honda Pacific Coast PC800 and the F6B almost look alike, except for physical size.

Sometimes the word "No" means "Not Now".....Pac Coast was way before its time in a superbike world at the time they created it. So, we will see what the FB6 plays.....

Having had my hands DEEP inside the guts of both of those bikes (OK, a regular GL1800, not an F6B, but they're almost exactly the same mechanically), I can tell you that the two share virtually nothing in common, mechanically or design-wise.

Looking at the Pacific Coast, it looks like they designed a seamless body the way they wanted it to look, then fit a motorcycle underneath it. The 1800 was definitely built from the inside out - the outer parts are fit around the various frame, engine and system members.

The 1800 is FAR easier to take bodywork off of than is the Pacific Coast!
