550K USA Import
« on: September 21, 2018, 02:40:31 am »
CB550K I purchased in February 2018 , imported from USA ( place unknown ) . Most of the electrics had been removed , lights , flashers , and the harness cut off below the headstock . Have now sourced the headlamp ( non honda) and indicators , all working now . Motor now running after finding carbs " varnished " inside with standing so long . I now have UK date related registration , and have ridden her for 110 miles so far ( Sept 2018 ) . The plan is to restore it to something like stock , with a few " personal touches " , over the coming winter .
