Honda CB description

I bought this from an estate sale - the 84 year old gentleman's wife sold this after it had been sitting in their garage for over 30 years. It has 688 Original miles and comes with original clean and clear title issued in 1979. Still has original tool kit under seat. There is some light rust and pitting which can be taken care of in short order, but it's in excellent condition overall. All the plug wires, carb boots, seat and misc. rubber is still completely soft and supple. My guess is that the garage was heated because of this.

The bike is 100% original - tires, cables, etc. I've gone over the bike pretty thoroughly, and I don't think anyone has ever taken a screwdriver or wrench to it yet - even the screws and bolts are pristine!

The bike will need a carb and tank clean as well as a new battery and fluids. The motor does turn freely and easily, but not currently running. If you wrench, then you know this is a day's work. If you do not wrench, then the cost to get it running should be about $500, and that is on the high side.
