2003 Superb Honda CB500 Twin (Price REDUCED) For Sale
This is a beautiful Honda CB500 Twin and really good ones are extremely hard to find nowadays. The problem is that we no longer have the time to enjoy this lovely bike and so it is just not being used as it should, covering only 1,100 miles in the last 3 years. It is a fantastic reliable bike, it rides beautifully and runs like a “dream”, I will most probably regret selling it, but being sensible, now it really does need to go to an enthusiast who will continue to look after it….. and ride it. Registered in January 2003, it has covered less than 27,500 miles in its 17-year life. These Honda twins are very economical, fantastically reliable, relatively light, easily maneuverable and absolute pleasure to ride. As such, they are much sought after and thus its value can only increase as the years go by. It comes with its original Sales Folder, Owners Manual and Service Book, along with a Full Service History, a record of MOT’s and the 3 original Honda Keys. The bike was given a full overhaul in 2016 and a lot has been spent improving the bike since (including new tyres, brake discs and pads). It has been covered and cossetted in a warm carpeted garage and only taken out and ridden on nice days! As well as previous records, I have my own documented records detailing each and every ride and everything that has been done to the bike over the last 3 years, servicing, parts and fuel consumption figures etc. The last MOT ran out on 18th August 2019 and it hadn’t been started for over one year, yet with a drop of fresh fuel, it cranked over about four times (I run the carb dry if it is not going to be used for a spell) it started and ran like a dream to the garage where it passed its MOT with flying colours (now MOT’d until 16th Sept’ 2020). It was an absolute pleasure to ride (I did about 26 miles) and so it is now back in the comfort of my garage, with carb run dry and only 27,435 miles on the clock, waiting for its new owner. The screen, engine bars and rear carrier will be included, but not the top box and plate. UPDATE 2020 - Forgot to mention that the bike is also fitted with an expensive (behind the rear number plate type) Scottoiler, Touring chain lubrication system and, for good battery maintenance, an Accumate/Optimate fused charging lead connected to the Battery. I believe that the bike has “Smart Water” ID (although I have never confirmed this) and as a result of a recent enquiry, I have gone back through the bikes records to check and tabulate every piece of the bikes mileage history (through Service Records and MOT’s), so I can confirm the current mileage of 27,435 to be accurate - which over its lifetime equates to only 1,614 miles per annum! My own mpg data equates to an average of well over 55+ mpg (Wikipedia quote fuel consumption at 17.2km/l which when converted = 48.58mpg) so as you can see the engine is very healthy. Wikipedia also quote these twins as being ”reliable, good handling and popular with commuters, as well as Motorcycle couriers”! (obviously, this has not been courier owned). Wikipedia also state that Honda engineers designed these engines to last for 190K miles, such is the reliability of these twins. I have added more photos with this update, any other information you may require, just ask. I’m sure that you will not be disappointed with this bike.
