Honda CB 500 Four

It almost looked like a café racer when it was brought to us. But sometimes “almost” is not good enough. And honestly, the preowners plan was not to use it on his own. He knew about the value of a 4-cylinder Honda. Therefore he might have wanted to become it a little bit more fancy, dress it up for a customer in some way. In spring of 2016 , the small japanese girl with the “big” engine, stranded in front of our door. She looked, like she would be able to tell a lot of weird stories, especially the fairy tale of the yellow frame color, in the middle of some black paintings would of our interest. This is something, we will never find out.

The funny gold anodised clip-ons, in CNC milled appearance, coming directly from the land of the uprising sun, have been bolt off right at the beginning. What a blessing! We had to repair a lot of things. The fork and engine was leaking and the wiring harness looked like a sick joke of a punch of pastry cooks. We then mounted a classic m-style handlebar, a 60mm  Daytona instrument inductive sensor, fancy Lights and turn signals and the whole bodyparts have been repainted in classic Honda CB colors with modern interpretation. Enclosed by handlinings from Mr I-flow.

She’s much prettier now, much prettier.
