Honda CB 500 Four
She almost looked like a café racer when we first met. But not enough. And due to the semi-pro conversions, we assume it was not intended to drive it anyway. He pimped the bride and sold it for good reasons. At some point the little Honda was introduced to us. A tiny, Japanese girl with a wide engine, made in the early seventies. It would be quiet interesting to listen to her stories, especially the fairy tale of the yellow frame colour under a few black layers would catch my attention.Unfortunately we will never know. I remember that the first thing I removed were the funny locking gold anodized clip-ons in CNC “milled optics” made by the land of rising suns. What a blessing. A couple of leakages on the fork and engine had to be solved. Not talking anymore about the cable mess, the pastry chefs had prepared for us. We installed an m-style handlebar, a Daytona speedometer with induction sensor, nice lighting and light brackets. After that the Honda got a very classic paint with high gloss clear coat. Including handmade pinstripes from Mr. I-flow.
She is much prettier now, much prettier.
