Honda CB description

I have a 1975 Honda CB550 Super Sport. Tank and side covers is the original paint from the factory, not a respray. The right side cover has a crack which is higlighted in the pictures but has been repaired. One will not noticed unless closely examined. The tank has some paint imperfections which is highlighted in the pictures as well. The engine has a 605 big bore kit. The piston domes are coated with CBC1* thermal barrier and the skirts with DFL1* high pressure dry film lubricant. Coatings assist with less friction and better combustion. 

The head has a Stage 2 MRieck work completed. The work includes: disassemble, inspect, bead blast entire head, porting of head especially around the guide boss and intake floor. The head was resurfaced, Serdi Valve job, kibblewhite springs. 

The engine has a 650 cam for higher lift, better performance over stock 550 cam. Brand new OEM cam chain, new front and rear sprocket. New chain, 650 tachometer to allow proper RPM readings. However it is not hooked up due to running a tach plug. New owner can install a tach cable to use the tachometer. The bike will come with the original tachometer as well. The sprocket cover is an original chromed piece from the 70's. The stator cover and clutch cover is chromed as well. The bike is equipped with 5 ohm Dyna coils, Dyna electronic ignition. HondaMan modern blade fuse box. Rick's new starter solenoid. The bike does come with a MotoGPwerks 4-1 exhaust that has been powder coated internally to preserve longevity of the exhaust. There is a dent in the headers and please examine pics of the dents on the header. The Avon Roadrunner tires were bought last summer. This Honda is equipped with Superbike handlebars, has All Balls tapered neck bearings installed. Hagon rear shocks as well. 

The chrome on the fenders is in great shape. Wiring harness is not hacked up. All turn signals work. Modern flasher upgrade. The original tank has been lined with a Caswell sealer. Overall the bike is in nice shape for a 41 year old bike. 

Please look at all pics to see the flaws. Also PM me and I can share any other info needed. Sale is final, as is, with no return and there is a 500 deposit due when the auction has ended within 12 hours. Buyer is responsible for shipping. I will assist with shipping but only in the extent of being present when picked up by the buyer. Ebay is not allowing me to choose a different shipping option so please contact in regard to shipping. Please check out the video on youtube of the Honda on the Dyno. It tested out at 44hp to the wheel. Stock from the factory is roughly 35 HP.

Moto2 needs more radical bikes

Wed, 05 Sep 2012

Makers of fine exhausts, Taylormade Racing have built a Moto2 racer that harks back to the innovative machines like the Elf Honda 500 and Britten V1000. Since Moto2's inception in 2010 the class has featured bikes with conventional chassis but the Taylormade bike, designed by Paul Taylor and John Keogh, has a radical design featuring a carbon-fibre monocoque frame, carbon-fibre swingarm, wishbone monoshock front suspension and an under-seat radiator. However, with such radical engineering the inherent problem is that it is a risk for teams to invest in such a project.

Classic Off-Road Bikes Featured in Braving Baja: 1,000 Miles to Glory Exhibition

Sat, 06 Apr 2013

Back in the 60s, American Honda tested the durability of its motorcycles by sending a CL72 Scrambler on a 950-mile trek through rocks, sand washes, dry lake beds, mountain passes and paved roads. Fifty years later, that legendary run is remembered for inspiring one of the most significant off-road races in the world—the Baja 1000. In celebration, the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles is hosting a tribute dinner, one-day off road show, and summer-long exhibition called Braving Baja, 1,000 Miles to Glory.

Honda’s New Documentary: Dreams vs Nightmares [trailer]

Wed, 24 Jun 2009

Honda have been releasing video documentaries on… well… everything!  Why?  Well to toot their own horn and remind you that Honda is crazy cool. Actually, their videos aren’t that bad, although somewhat dramatic.  I hunkered down and watched their “Failure: The Secret to Success” video and it held my attention. Their new video is titled “Dreams vs Nightmares”, which features a few notable people such as Clive Barker and Deepak Chopra.  I’m curious to see how they take this theme and use it to show how and why Honda creates and designs the products they make.
