Honda CB description

Hello and welcome to the auction for my 1989 Honda GB500 factory cafĂ© racer in stunning condition with only 7891 original miles. This GB500 fires up with the electric start or you can use the kick starter and warms up quickly and also has a very nice growl thanks to the custom exhaust system, also the bike runs through all 5 gears flawlessly. The original paint still holds a very high luster and looks excellent, The chrome is excellent, the aluminum wheels, side cases and forks looks great and show very little wear considering the bikes age. The seat is perfect, and the rear cowl is in very good condition  and is not cracked but it does show signs of stress by the right side bolt. All lights, gauges and controls look very nice and  function perfectly. The only flaw on the bike is a very small ding on the side of the tank that will not show up in the picture (see picture). The tires look good and have plenty of tread but I'm not sure how old they are, but they feel great on the street. The engine is completely stock and sounds excellent!!! Bike has always been stored in a climate controlled environment and has always been well cared for and has aged very gracefully.  This bike will be sold with a complete tool kit, 2 sets of keys, and a clean / clear Massachusetts title and bill of sale form. Bike needs absolutely nothing and is ready to go!!!!!!

This Honda GB500 has been fitted with a very unique Jack Batson stainless exhaust system that weighs only 7 pounds and has been properly jetted with a adjustable Factory Pro Jet kit, and also the smog equipment has been removed. This exhaust and jetting has turned this little kitty cat of a bike into a lion and runs and rides amazing and will be sure to impress, but it is a little loud. Considering I have owned and ridden many GB500's and this one really stands alone in the performance department and I really had no idea that this would really wake up this little bike. When riding the bike you can putt around as slow as you want , but when you give it the juice the carb kicks in like an old 4 barrel carb and that's when the WOW factor sets in. I understand that many people want these bike in there stock form so I will include all the original parts with the bike if desired. Here is what will come with the bike, the original and complete exhaust system, factory mirrors, smog pump and grips. I do not have the original bar ends but there easy to find. If you would like I will gladly change the exhaust over to the original with a supertrapp muffler to compensate for the jetting. If this is the case I will include the factory muffler. I will not re jet this bike because I am not a carb pro by any means. The Jack Batson exhaust I will save for my other Honda GB500 if you choose to have the factory exhaust re installed. This bike is extremely impressive with the exhaust system and runs out very strong. If you go back to the original system you may find the bike to be very tame and 20-30 pound heavier.

If you need shipping I will help in anyway I can but the cost is the buyers expense. If you are shipping payment will be in the form of a certified bank check. If you are picking up in person payment will be in the form of cash. Bike and paperwork will not leave me until payment is received and cleared by my bank. My reserve is set to a very reasonable amount considering the bikes condition and modifications. If you have any questions regarding this fine Honda GB500 please feel free to contact me via email and leave me your contact information or call Rob @ 860 559-4869. If you are local and would like to see the bike in person you are more than welcome. Please do not bid unless you plan to pay for the bike. This is your chance to own a very rare original motorcycle in excellent condition with low miles so don't pass this one up. This is a true collectable Japanese motorcycle known for it's cult status. Enjoy the pictures and happy bidding!!!!!!

I also have a fully professionally restored 1965 Honda CB160 coming soon. This is a full nut and bolt restoration and 99% of the parts used in the restoration are new old stock parts. This bike is most likely one of the nicest in the country. Not included in this auction. If you have any questions please contact me. Thanks.

AMA Supercross: 2012 Daytona Results

Mon, 12 Mar 2012

James Stewart gave his 2012 AMA Supercross championship hopes a much needed boost with a big win in sloppy, muddy conditions at Daytona International Speedway. Heavy rains made the Ricky Carmichael-designed track in Daytona’s tri-oval section even more difficult than the GOAT conceived, with the terrain rough, choppy and rutted. Series point leader Ryan Villopoto became an early casualty of the track conditions, sliding outon the second corner.

2011 Vyrus Moto2 Grand Prix Racer Preview

Fri, 14 Jan 2011

Motorbike cognoscenti recognize the Vyrus name, the Italian brand producing exotic sportbikes based on the amazing hub-center-steered Bimota Tesi. The Vyrus story begins when Bimota filed for bankruptcy in the early 2000s. Vyrus principal Ascanio Rodorigo, a former Bimota employee, began producing his version of the Tesi after Bimota let its patents expire while it was in bankruptcy.

Glen Richards back with Embassy Racing

Wed, 27 Oct 2010

One of the unsung heroes of the BSB paddock over the past few seasons, has to be 2010 Superstock 1000 runner up Glen Richards. A nasty tumble in at the Brands Hatch opener lead to four DNFs, but once back on track he pushed the dominant BMWs hard, finishing on the podium eight times. While many were trading their grannies to fund new S1000RRs, Richards kept the faith and rode the wheels off his Padgett’s Honda Fireblade.
