1971 Honda CB500. It doesn't run tho, it just needs a wiring harness and a battery. Besides that it's in really good shape. No dents or dings in the tank or fenders, no rips in the seat.. gonna be a fun bike when I get it running. Kind of a mild cafe style racer.:)

Lucky SOB!!! Give to me! :D

That's gonna be a very fun toy. Do me a favor and take beginner motorcycle class. In most states your insurance goes down a little if you do, and sometimes it can substitute for taking the test to get your motorcycle endorsement.

I dint realize Honda made a CB500. I owned a '77 550K back in '79. Very fun and reliable bike.

Here's what a stock original one would look like -> http://www.bikepics.com/pictures/1128836/

While a cafe version could look like this -> http://www.bikepics.com/pictures/1137466/
Needs super-low tuck-in bars to be a proper cafe racer, though. Those ones are too upright. If you can't catch your hand between the tank and the bars taking it out of your driveway, they're too high.:)

Definately needs to be lower and have clip-ons to be a cafe racer. Cool bike though.

Swped this photo from somewhere. I wanted to paint my Harley with Rhino liner so this was the image I was using to describe it.

Ugh, that's hideous.
