1979 registered, UK specification model Honda CB550 K3 restored by the current owner and ridden circa 2000ml since completion in Spring 2022, a period which has included some development and upgrade work. The V5C shows 11 previous owners but no owner history information is available. Mileage was indicated 36, 406ml at purchase by the current owner and appears to be genuine from the limited DVLA MOT history. MOT and road tax exempt as a historical vehicle.
All the original chassis and engine parts are painted, polished or re-chromed with genuine Honda and aftermarket replacement parts fitted where the originals were beyond economic repair. The majority of fasteners have been re plated and a few replaced. The wheels have been rebuilt with new polished SS/ spokes and rims (wider than OE rear) fitted with Avon Roadrider MK2 tyres (3. 5” and 4”). The petrol tank and side cover paint is original in quite good condition with tank underside repainted and new seam trims added. Engine work incudes replacement exhaust valves guides, re-cut seats and an upgrade modification to fit a primary chain tensioner from a CB650. Carburettors have been vacuum gauge balanced.
This bike was in a very neglected condition when acquired by the current owner and although complete, several parts still had to be replaced. It now a well sorted, very useable and reliable example of this model, which idles well and pulls smoothly throughout the rev range. Selling to create more workshop room and finance the next project. The asking price includes many rejected/ changed parts if required by the buyer.
