Here are a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed.

Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.

Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.

In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.

    1975 Honda CB550 Cafe Racer Custom for sale


    After 2 years of ownership and the build my beloved CB550 Cafe Racer is for sale.

    Model: Honda CB550K
    Year: 1975
    Miles: 11,XXX
    Contact: Email
    Phone 253-651-1601
    Location: Tacoma, Washington
    Price: Listed $5500, for R3V $5000

    I originally bought the motorcycle from a man down in Oregon whose father bought the bike brand new in New York. It was ridden across the country to Oregon and was ridden sporadically. The son eventually was given the bike. It sat for a number of years until it was tuned up and listed for sale 2 years ago when I had bought it.

    I rode the bike around 300 miles all stock to get a feel for everything before taking it all the way down to a bare frame to restore/build it. Everything was handmade by me, except the seat, wiring harness, and a couple custom pieces. It took a little under a year to complete the build. No corners were cut as I had the desire to build the bike to be a turn key rider. I wanted a highly reliable and fun cafe racer. Once the build was complete I have put around 3000 miles on the bike ironing every little thing out to be close to perfect. I have rode on many long distance rides, and I am very pleased how it turned out.

    I have all of the receipts down to the nuts and bolts.

    -Detabbed removing mounts for the battery and old fuse box
    -Tail brace to stiffin frame
    -All Balls roller bearings on the headset
    -Painted with Por-15 chassis coat

    -Completely resealed with new gaskets.
    -Tappets adjusted
    -New spark plugs
    -New gold chain
    -New sprocket
    -Allen Key hardware kit
    -Custom made Lossa Engeering 4 into 1 exhaust with exhaust wrap
    -Painted with Por-15 Engine coating

    -Custom made wiring harness made by Sparck Moto out of Portland, OR. This harness is slimmed down only using the essentials.
    -Modern regulator and rectifier
    -Anti Gravity Lithium Ion battery
    -Dime City Cycles Speedometer with working indicator lights
    -Dime City Cycles smoked rear blinkers
    -Cognito Moto Electronics tray under seat to hold all electronics and battery.

    Suspension and Tires:
    -DCC adjustable rear shocks
    -Stock front forks with new seals and fluid
    -Pirelli Route Tires

    -Rebuilt front caliper
    -Custom steel braided brake lines
    -Rebuilt rear drum brake

    Handmade by "Hellmuts" a custom helmet company. It was made with dual density foam and rear cowhide leather.

    -Every bolt replaced with zinc coated hardware
    -Rebuilt hand controls
    -Oil changed using only Amsoil and K&N oil filters

    Overall the bike is in great running condition and turns heads everywhere it goes. I know every inch and bolt on this bike. I'm sure I may have missed a few parts on the list. If you have any questions feel free to contact me via email or phone. I will reply quickly.
