Description

Following the rapturous reception of their mould-breaking CB750 in 1969, Honda embarked on a program to capitalize on its success. Amongst the designs which followed was a series of scaled-down, lower-capacity ‘fours’ aimed at the rider who didn’t want a ‘superbike’ or didn’t feel the need for such performance.

The first of them to market, in 1971, was the CB500, a smaller and lighter visual replica of the larger bike with the same appealing looks. The overhead-cam ‘four,’ the five-speed ‘box, the disc brake and full specification were still present, as were the great colors and upswept chrome pipes.

This example was part of an Italian collection for some years and has been dry stored. Showing just 18,350 Kms the bike will require recommissioning before being returned to the road.
