WINTER MADNESS SALE. LOOK BID BUY!!!It's now officially winter & that time of year when you need something to tinker with in the garage.

PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE PIC's & DESCRIPTION. This rare old 1971 HONDA CB500KO has recently been imported from North America where it has spent all its life – the air is thin and the climate is far kinder to machinery than ours.

PLEASE CHECKOUT THE PICTURES. As you can see this bike has got a few bits missing. a few bits damaged/broken. a few bits rusty/corroded. a few bits non standard & a few bits are very nice indeed. The wheels are straight with chrome rims. good hubs & brake plates disc. Forks legs look straight. Mudguards are both solid. Tail light assy is ok as are the headlight & hangers.

Instruments & switches look good. Fuel tank is faded and is ok inside with marks & scratches in the original paint. Carburetor works off the twist grip. Exhaust system feels solid. Seat base feels in good condition throughout. Chain guard is tidy. Shox are damping fine. The engine is cosmetically quite clean. it turns over nicely off the kick starter & displays compression. When we hooked it up to a good battery & fed it a few snorts of Ether it actually fired and run but it is obvious the carbs need attention.

Please note that the bright chrome is pitted throughout.
