1972 Honda CB500 Cafe From SpeedWerks
Our friends at SpeedWerks have this recently completed and very sharp Honda CB500 cafe available. As you can see from the before and after pictures, their shop is well known for a reason. Over the years we have posted probably a dozen of their prepared rides on RSBFS. And the best part is that this bike is going to sell. Current bid is $2251 with a bit over 3 days to go. Good luck to buyer and seller!
quote from the seller:
Here we have a fun project that needs a good home. This was a well cared for CB500 that we took completely down and rebuilt/replaced every single component.
We have WAY more time and money in it than it will bring, so our loss is your gain.
It would be a great “cool’ bike to blast around on. You wont have any trouble finding it in the parking lot at your local Bike Night!
We documented the entire build, there are 72 picture’s and video’s in the link:
The bike was complete,It was totally disassembled and then the resto started, the engine was rebuilt (didn’t need it but oh well). All new gaskets,rings,clutch etc.
