Honda CB500 Four
A period re-creation of the 500/4 as we wanted them in the ’70s. The ultimate accessorised period classic: Yoshi 4-1, rear-sets, mag wheels (wow mag wheels!) Italian sports seat (they were branded 2:4 seats in the day) and all this on the most desirable of Japanese classics. This is a UK 500Four with known history and the recorded mileage is genuine, a matching numbers machine in fine mechanical condition throughout. It’s been owned by a friend for most of it’s life and known to me for years. The rear-set footrests are the set I bought in the ’80s for my own 500/4 and never fitted, donated to the good cause that this super-cool classic has become. Please note the rear brake cable will be re-fitted properly before we ride and sell the bike, it’s just on there for show at the moment. The paintwork has been done to the highest standard and none of the period upgrades preclude returning to standard specification, in which case you would have a concours example of a UK Honda four. The standard parts are available with the bike if desired: budget £1,000 for the exhaust system and about the same for all the other parts including wheels.
