The CB500 Four was introduced by Honda in the early 1970s and produced from 1971 until 1979. Throughout its lifespan four version were build (K0 - K3).
K1: 1972-1973 (limited to modest aesthetic updates, for example: shape of instruments and the exhaust mufflers)
K2: 1973-1974 (limited to modest aesthetic updates, for example: shape of instruments and the exhaust mufflers)
K3: 1975-1979 (changes: colors, tank, instruments, direction indicators etc.)
Aesthetically it is very similar to the Honda CB 750. Just like the CB 750 it has a single hydraulic disc brake in the front and a drum break in the rear. The main difference iss the size, the CB 500 is smaller, and lighter. As a consequence this was a more usable motorcycle on a daily basis.
Nevertheless, the engine produced 50 bhp that resulted in a top speed of around 180 km/h. And just like the CB 750, the CB 500 has a lot of racing pedigree. In 1973, Bill Smith won the 500 cc TT production race with a Honda CB 500, ahead of Stan Woods on a Suzuki T500 two-stroke.
This particular Honda CB 500 has been driven for 79.427 km.
It has been from factory upgraded with a Guiliari seat, that is still in a very good condition.
The original exhaust system is still installed and new Metzeler ME77 tyres have been put on.
The gas tank shows no sign of rust.
The engine works, and it is fully functioning.
All in all, this CB 500 can be used right away and enjoyed on nice weekend trips.
