Honda CB description

Winner MUST pick up, I will NOT ship!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a 1978 CB750K that I bought off the original owner, in non running condition. I rebuilt the bike about 5 years ago to make it a cafe styled bike. I did not have to tear into the engine, but here is a list of what I did do:
rebuilt the forks, new fork seals
New tires
rebuilt the front brakes
New Front Brake Line
New front brake pads
Newer Throttle Cables, and Clutch Cable 
Adjusted the valves
had the Carbs rebuilt
Changed jet sizes for the cone type air filters and high flow exhaust (not too positive on the type, bought it used on ebay, I think its an old Kerker exhaust, not sure)
Replaced the original tank with a mid 70's tank for a better look (I do have the original tank if you want it)
Repainted the whole bike, including the rims, blacked out engine with polished accents
Replaced the points with a dyna jet pointless ignition
Has the original seat, which has a tear, but I also have a new seat cover that I will include with the bike.

I probably did more, just cant think of it now. I built this to be a daily rider, not a showroom bike. I have put about 5,000 miles on it, including a week long trip to Indiana last summer (2012). It is stored at my folks garage in Kutztown, PA, which is where I will sell it from (the registration expired and its pointless to renew it just to ride it to my house in NJ to sell, plus I don't have a garage - and its always been garaged kept since I rebuilt it. Its an old bike, and it does start up right away once warmed up, but it can be a little hesitant to start when cold, just like most old bikes. I had Clubman bars (cafe style) on it but changed them for the Indiana ride since having the more aggressive stance with clubmans is harsh on my back for such a long ride.

McGuinness to Race Honda CBR500R at 2013 Isle of Man TT

Wed, 06 Mar 2013

Honda is serious about showing off the racing prowess of the CBR500R. Sharing much of the same components as its siblings the CB500X and CB500F, it’s easy for critics to question whether the CBR500R is worthy of the CBR designation. The first thing Honda did to try to dispel those worries is to secure the CBR500R as the spec race bike for the 2013 European Junior Cup, a racing series for youths held at select rounds of the World Superbike Championship.
