As the World’s most prolific motorcycle manufacturer there is barely such a thing as a rare Honda, however the GB500 TT just might be it. Introduced in the 1980’s it was first produced as 400 and then a 500cc based on the single cylinder XL off road bike engine. The TT stood as a homage to the ‘Tourist Trophy’ races on the Isle of Man, which was ironic as the bike was only available as a grey import in the UK. Purchased in 1999 by the previous lady owner this example was declared manufactured in 1985 and was registered here in the UK in 1994.
Having been stored and not used for a while the bike has recently been recommissioned and fully serviced with a new MoT until Jan 2018. Showing 21,119 Kms (13,122 miles) it is in generally good original order however it could do with some further cosmetic work.
The fuel tank is unmarked and in good condition but the mudguards are showing signs of age as are the alloy wheels. Mechanically the bike is excellent and is reported to run and ride well. A generally presentable low milage example.
