« on: January 28, 2024, 08:06:08 PM »
Honda CB 500 4.
I had a nice buy this week i purchased a Honda CB 500 4 1972 with 7000 miles.
The machine had been stored in a basement with air and heat and its mint.
So I have pulled the carbs drained the oil set the valves and timing.
Next week I will have it running.
Thanks.
Steve.

The carbs are off.  Paint is a bit faded on the gas tank.  The exhaust is not std.  Down pipe is stock.  Silencers are after market.  Excellent shape for a 52 years old motorcycle.

Thanks,
Steve

This motorcycle has not been restored.  The tank is removed to show the frame condition. 

Thanks,
Steve

That's awesome!!! What's the plan? Find OE mufflers? Paint the tank?

Kinda related, I guess. I was fumbling around on YouTube and ran across this.

My Honda has a vin number and a frame number plus the mileage on the title.
How did they miss checking the vin and frame number on the Kawasaki?
Thanks.
Steve.

I saw an update the other day. Mecum unwound the deal, shipped the bike back to the seller, no charge. The seller says it's the real deal, and vows to prove it to sell later.
