Honda CB description

***1974 Honda CB550 Incredible survivor, unrestored, runs and rides perfect, mild patina***

Folks, rarely will you ever see a bike with the original paint and pipes this clean!  All of the chrome still looks decent but could look  better with some professional chrome polishing.  This bike is in incredible survivor condition and runs better than it looks, seriously!  The pipes are almost perfect and still have the original baffles.  They are in great condition because this bike has been RIDDEN often and well maintained!  This incredible machine runs like a Turbine and sounds so awesome  with the note of those four exhaust creating a symphony for your eardrums, it really is exhilarating to drive!  I have all of the original turn signals to go back on the bike and will package them up and send them with the bike of you want them.  The previous owner installed smaller turn signals and they look great so I left them on.

Take a look at the original paint, the pipes, the plush seat, the new tires, and soak up the fact that it could be yours for Christmas.  The Boss Maroon Metallic bikes are VERY hard to find as most people bought the Sunflake Orange version.  I have only ever owned one of these that was cleaner, no actually, that was a CB500.  Again, it does need a little fun-scrubbing here and there but overall this bike is an incredible example of what Honda was making back in the day, just an incredible piece of machinery!  It doesn't really need anything except a rider!  

Call me if you have any questions at 724-866-2571.  My name is Phil

Honda Sold 16.8 Million Motorcycles in 2013

Wed, 29 Jan 2014

Honda announced sales of 16.8 million motorcycles in 2013, an improvement of 8.7% from the 15.5 million motorcycles sold in 2012. The announcement was made two days before Honda’s third quarter report for the three months ended Dec. 31, 2013, so we will have to wait to hear the financial impact, but based on these numbers, the quarterly report should be positive.

Stoner explains the tank slapper

Mon, 03 Oct 2011

Casey Stoner looked all set to win at Motegi, after translating his pole position into an early race-lead. But coming over the crest on the back straight his bike momentarily lost control in a tank slapper. Regaining composure the championship leader was forced to pump his brakes to get the pads back in place, with the rear-wheel bouncing in the air he ran out of time and space to make the 90 degree right hander and was forced to run into the gravel.

Teaser: 2012 Japanese Literbike Shootout – Video

Thu, 29 Mar 2012

The last time we assembled the superbike offerings from the Big Four Japanese manufacturers to determine the alpha male model was 2009. The CBR won that confrontation, but a lotís changed since then. For 2012 Honda revamped the CBR1000RR, Yamaha added traction control to the R1, the GSX-R1000 lost a muffler and last year Kawasaki introduced an all-new ZX-10R.
