Hi all,

just joined and wanting to have a caferacer just like all the other badasses!!!

I would love to land on a CB750, but i actually ran across this 1972 CB500 for $500. Doesn't need to much work except for the normal carb rebuild or clean.

What you guys thing yes or no?

Thanks,

seems to be a good deal provided it doesn't need any major motor work. the sidecovers will cost you but you don't need them to ride the bike, just make it look good.

welcome.

go buy a compression gauge, take it to the dudes house, check it....if it's good on all cylinders, buy it!

and don't listen to geeto, he's got a gay complex.

ps- sidecovers are gay.

Let's see...camelhairy's badass because he's gone fast with the big guys, but I think everybody else here is a bunch of posers.

(pssst....badasses is so...Harley culture. we're here for the bikes, not the leather chaps and fake tattoos. we make exceptions for people with clubmans.)

I should add, be courteous to Geeto, he's not only fabulously styled, but possesses reams of esoteric Honda CB knowledge.

You don't have to be courteous to me....just try not sound like puberty was something that happened last week and I will pretty much leave you alone. And I think I am going to go back to using lame instead of gay. gay is gay now apparently.

and borwazie....wadda ya mean? that pic was taken at your house, remember?

As for the cb500 - you probably want to check out sohc4.net in addition to this site. Lots of good stock resources there.

there are also one or two other members on this board that live in austin - you should probably offer them beer to come along and take a look at the bike with you.
