Honda CB description

Vintage 1973 Honda CB500 custom brat style cafe racer "Cherry Pie". This bike has had absolutely everything either replaced with new items or has been redone. It needs nothing other than a new home. It was a one owner bike and only had 7,000 miles on it before being professionally rebuilt, and has had roughly 1,500 more since its completion. The previous owner purchased it new from the dealer in 1973 and used it to have fun on weekends when he was younger. The engine ran great and compression tested high so it was inspected and given a full tune up along with being coated in special high temp ceramic engine enamel and having all the old hardware changed to new polished stainless bolts. Carburetors were ultrasonically cleaned and fully rebuilt and rejetted, along with receiving new high performance dirtbike style air filters. Ignition system was serviced and adjusted to factory spec. The engine was just finished off with a brand new stainless steel full exhaust which looks great and sounds mean along with providing a nice increase in power. Mechanically the bike is perfect and it has no leaks or problems. The wheels have been powdercoated satin black and have all new bearings in them. They are rare Lester mag wheels and give the bike an awesome look as well as never need to be trued like a traditional stock wire spoke wheel. They are wrapped in new vintage style Firestone tires. The brakes were rebuilt front and rear with new pads and upgraded to a new stainless line for increased stopping power, along with having the old glazed front rotor and rear drum resurfaced. The tank was cleaned inside and repainted a deep cherry candy with a metal flake silver underneath. In certain light it looks like a deep red and in the sun it comes alive with glittering metal flake. "Cherry Pie" was also hand painted on the top of the tank along with a small cherry. The seat is a custom made steel seat pan that was covered in real high quality saddle leather. The wiring harness has been entirely reworked to a clean simple minimal harness with a lightweight maintenance free lithium battery. This bike is setup as kick start only although the stock electric starter is still in the engine and was functioning previously. It starts first kick hot or cold without needing choke. I have a clean/clear FL title in hand and it can easily be registered anywhere without a problem. Here is your chance to own an awesome nimble cafe that is a ton of fun to blast around on! Everywhere this bike goes there's a crowd around it! I have no problem assisting with shipping in any way possible, both international and domestic.

WSBK: 2012 Misano Results – Video

Tue, 12 Jun 2012

Max Biaggi strengthened his hold on the 2012 World Superbike Championship lead with a pair of wins at Italy’s Misano circuit. The Aprilia rider out-battled the Althea Ducati duo of Carlos Checa and Davide Giugliano to win Race One before taking a relatively easier Race Two victory. Before the races, WSBK riders lined up on the starting grid to hold a banner expressing their support for the Emilia region in northern Italy which has been suffering from earthquakes and continuing aftershocks since late May.

No snow here folks!

Fri, 31 Dec 2010

An erratic work schedule combined with a full season of kids racing means, there aren’t many opportunities during the summer months for the Mackenzie family to grab a holiday. Instead, we tend to save our pennies and head off somewhere sunny for Christmas. I love doing this as it shortens the UK winter but more importantly it means I miss the festive frenzy.  I do like Christmas, but I hate how everyone gets caught up in the retail madness that kicks off just before Halloween, then has everyone stressed (and skint)before Santa has even hitched up his sleigh.
