cb500four
« on: June 09, 2017, 04:15:56 pm »
Hi there, been looking at this site for a while now and have been working on this 500 a bit over a year. The bike was in a very bad way when i got it and the engine had been seized for many years, I have finnished the engine now whith fresh bearings and top end and am currently working on the front end of the bike. im going to send things off to be rechromed slowly due to being so expensive but i think its starting to look nice already with paint cleaning and polishing so far. cheers

Hi Andy, thanks you, I don't suppose you might have a speedo for an Aussie delivered 500? Cannot find one anywhere and seems no other speedo will fit, cheers brenden
