AVSCO Ltd ClearoutNo Buy it NowHonda CB550 from the 1970's Has an MOT until june 2015. runs & rides BUT ONLY AN IDIOT WOULD RIDE IT AWAY. strongly advise you get a trailer or van to collect (from Watford Herts). Where to start. this is a piece of Honda motorcycle history. sohc air cooled. 2 valves per cylinder. simplicity in itself. however it will remain a 'rat bike' or it will need a LOT of time. the paintwork is rubbish. the frame needs a blast & paint. the wheels are non standard. no battery. no airbox. some mod done to where the inlet manifolds are??. really uncomfy seat. non standard wheels. etc. etc. BUT it runs. FYI the CB550 was the poorer brother to the famed CB400/4 & 750/4's of the same era. don't know why it was less popular. but it is now becoming rarer as every day passes. I remember having one in the late 70's & loved it. the only thing that went wrong was the rear hub cracked (mine was spoked wheels). This bike could be restored or turned into a cafe racer. bobber. etc. The Log book has been missplaced so expect to pay a ?25 fee to DVLA for a new one. if it is found before the end of the auction I will ammend the listing. Sold as seen. no warranty given or implied. NO BUY IT NOW. cash on collection from Watford Herts ONLY. viewing welcome. bid to buy not have first refusal. no 'agents'. no cheques. no money transfers. contact to be made within 24 hours of the end of the auction. collection within the week. WantedWithin 50 miles of Watford HertfordshireScrap Honda C50's for moped racing NOT for restoration. any condition must be free or very cheap
