Honda CB description

I am selling my 1975 Honda CB 500 T.  I have too many bikes to ride but letting go of this one is especially hard.  This bike is not a restoration; it is a survivor that sat covered inside for decades. It was bought from an estate sale with less than 300 miles, then brought back to life; new oil, gas, carbs rebuilt, battery and lubrication.  It is in exceptionally well preserved condition and has 1388 miles, of which I have driven over 900.

I was in the process of restoring another 500 T when I located this bike.  I put a newly painted tank and side covers on this bike but still have the originals.  Everything works on this bike.  It still feels tight and new.  There are no leaks, it starts easily with either the electric or kick starter, it doesn't smoke, it runs and idles smoothly.  I had the clutch replaced just from age.  This Honda drives like it was from the dealership in 1975. The seat is like new, the tires are original and in great shape.  There is some pitting on the chrome from age but still very good and solid. The tach and speedometer are the original "glory brown" and the orange markings on them aren't even faded. Everything is original and in very good condition, mechanically and in appearance.

This CB 500 T is ridden regularly, has current registration and inspection.  I have a clear Texas title.  This motorcycle would make an excellent addition to any collection or just become a daily rider.  There aren't many examples of the CB 500 T in this condition anywhere.

Buyer is responsible for all shipping arrangements and costs. I will be available to coordinate pick up by your shipper.  I am available by phone (817) 271-0423 to answer any specific questions you may have.  Happy Bidding!!
