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.
