i had someone give me a cb500t today, all it is is a rolling chassis with most of the motor
has anyone ever did anything with em, is it worth messing with or should i use it as a coffee table base?

some people are like slinkies, basically useless but they still make me smile when i push them down the stairs

I'm not sure what Geeto is cranking on about, my 500T is a fine bike. With a cam, a little port work, free floing tubes and some jetting it's quite a decent ride. Hell even stock it wasn't bad. I love how the 450 purists like to look down thier noses at 50 extra ccs and a better gearbox.

By spring I'll have mine down to 300 pounds give or take and around 60hp. While not current sport bike standard it'll be a fun little cafe bike that will look good too.

Lead, follow or get out of the way!
