    Hey guys i just bought a new bike and i was wondering if i got a good deal. I was told it was a 1970 honda cb 500 with a 71 tank. It was supposedly rebuilt entirerly and had some custom paint work. It runs like a dream and looks sharp. If you guys have an idea on value let me know. Thanks. Paid 900 as is. Not for sale. And is my first bike i ever owned or rode.

    Fairly standard copy of a Carpy build.

    Two things.
    Very few people are going to want to play some bullshit "what do you value it" at game.

    Even less people are going to be all that into that bike here.

    You like it?
    You bought it?
    Cool.

    Some times things come around that are so singularly inept it gives you a whole new appreciation for the ept

    Cool.

    Much like Jag said. Its a handsome bike. And if you are happy with it that's all that counts. If it was in my garage I wouldn't be unhappy.
    Don\'t cry because its over. Smile because it happened

    It looks like a decent bike, all things considered.
    -Ergonomic controls
    -center mounted tail light
    -blinkers
    -progressive? shocks
    -fenders
    -new tires
    -airbox

    the only things I would change would be to remove the cliché pedestrian splitter and relocate the plate to under the tail light

    - - - Updated - - -

    I'd say maybe $3500?

    If you're asking us without telling us what you paid, you paid too much.

    If it runs well. $900 is a steal for a very clean "looking" cb500 around here.
