Lot Details
1974 Honda CB550/4
Frame no. CB5501019135
Engine no. CB550E1019258
After the sensational success of Honda's CB750, the company introduced a range of smaller displacement four cylinder machines with the CB500 of 1971. The younger sibling shared much of the specification of the larger bike with an overhead-camshaft engine, five-speed gearbox, electric starter and disc front brake.

With a slight increase in power from the enlarged 550cc capacity and the better agility in the twisty back roads, the CB550 offered is another collectible and desirable and very useable classic. In need of a little re-commissioning after display in a prominent collection for some years, the example here is offered in very good all 'round condition.
