This bike was released 6 years after Honda introduced itsline of 1969 CB750 superbikes now deemed "Bike of the Century". The CB550F is slightly scaled down in size --200cc less --and still features the inline four cylinder engine four carbs and a factory Honda four-into-one exhaust header. With its glassy Sunrise Orange-Flake Honda factory paint and brilliant chrome/polished surfaces this motorcycle has a STUNNING JEWEL-LIKE APPEARANCE. Cosmetically it is as close to perfect as you can find. Seller has not found a flaw on it. Please look carefully at the detailed photos.

Likewise this bike is mechanically superb. Fuel system and carbs are perfectly clean and tuned. Tires are excellent (Dunlop). Battery is new. The engine runs like new - smooth quiet and powerful. Starts and idles perfectly. Chain and sprockets show minimal wear. Clutch and transmission operate as new.
