Description


I have for sale my Honda CB550. I finished building this last year, it has been competely rebuilt and runs great, hard to believe it is nearly 40 years old. As expected for a bike of its age it does burn a very small amount of oil and is a little smokey on start up but this soon goes when its warmed up. Price reflects this. I really don’t want to sell but situation forces sale, I have heavily reduced it. Just gave it a spruce up with new clutch cable and new oil filter and engine oil, front brake pads, serviced the forks with new seals and oil. MOT until October 2018 with no advisorys. Mileage was nearly 29,000 when I bought it in 2013. I have since put 2392 miles on it.

Frame - Stock frame with the headstock raked to give the aggressive drag bike stance. All tabs are still in place and was freshly powdercoated. Taper headset bearing fitted too.
Forks - Fitted with CB750 stansions brand new last year. Little bit longer than the stock ones.
Wheels - 80s CMA Mag Alloy wheels. Got these about 6 months ago, got freshly powdercoated and all new bearings and new bearing retainers.
Electrics - Fully rewired with a Motogadget M Unit. All new wiring. New coils, leads and caps and spare brand new NGK plugs. New combined Reg/Rec fron David Silvers. Gel AGM Battery.
Speedo - Digital KOSO speedo with mechanic adaptor allowing you to run a speedo drive cable and digital speedo.
Seat - Slimmed down new reproduction seat.
Engine - Replaced many gaskets recently, really clean for age, Has nice finned points and starter motor covers.
Carbs - Fitted some earlier model carbs and ditched the PD ones. Anyone who knows these bikes knows they are no good. These were fully refurbished with new internals. Uni foam pod filters.
Controls - Renthal bars. Biltwell Whiskey throttle.
Brakes - Rebuilt front caliper with new piston and seals. Braided hose and CB750 lever.
Exhaust - Stainless steel Delkevic exhaust system with a slip in baffle.
Fenders - Comes with a nice chrome Sportster mudguard which you could bolt straight back on. Nice Alloy short rear fender.

So much been done, really popular bike and usually listed for alot more than this. Any questions please give me a call on 07785511489. Cash on collection. Test ride with the money in my hand and proof of insurance.
