1975 Honda CB550K1 Unregistered US Import Classic Running Restoration Project - Picture 1 of 12

1975 Honda CB550K1 Unregistered US Import 

As you can see this bike has a few parts missing – Mirrors, and the starter button & lights on/off switch off the r/h cluster being the most obvious. It has stood a while, so the battery is flat, paintwork is nicely faded, master cylinder is not working, carburettors are stiff to operate. Sadly, the speedometer is broken as are both the side panels. Much of the bright chrome is lightly pitted & head light rim has taken a knock.

But now for the good news………This is the actual bike you are bidding on – Not library pictures from 48 years ago & it is every bit as nice as it looks here…..A true time warp machine!. The wheels look straight with clean chrome rims, good hubs & brake plate, disc & caliper. Forks & yokes look straight & clean. Mudguards are both solid. Taillight assy is good. Carburettors are just about free sliding off the twist grip. Paintwork is slightly faded but solid, fuel tank is useably clean inside and has just minor dents/marks & scratches in the original paint. Exhausts are non-original & solid. Seat base is in very good condition throughout. Indicators are reasonably tidy. Chain guard is tidy as is the grab rail. The engine is cosmetically clean, it turns over nicely off the kick starter – sounds/feels great & has BUT BEST OF ALL when we hooked it up to a good battery & fed it fresh fuel, gave it a few prods it fires, starts, runs & revs but it is obvious the carbs need attention as they were leaking fuel.
