Reasonable budget CB500

Post by sullivj on Sat 16 Aug 2014, 7:00 pm

After borrowing my bike, my mate is now looking for a cheap CB500 of his own.

He liked this one, but it's way up in Scotland.

If anyone sees a good one in the South, please let me know.

£500ish and sub 20,000 miles would be good.

Finding anything other than a rat of a bike for £500 down south is gonna be tricky. A lucky snipe on EBay would probably be his best chance.

Not sure I trust the mileage (unless it's been around the clock) considering it's age but from the pics, I'd be making a call & taking a trip north if I were your mate.  If it were a later disc version I'd be up there like a shot but I just can't face going back to a drum.

That is a great price for a 15k bike, looks like its got a stainless can too. It might be cheap due to its location but unless your mate is really lucky I doubt they would  pick one up for a similar price.

I agree with you chaps. Mine was a lot more expensive, and still needed some work.

I offered to do the 1,200 mile road trip with him, my tow bar and bike trailer, but he's sensibly waiting for something closer.

Getting a bike from miles away is fun though! You got to ride down there 2 up to collect it, ride it back, a fun day out!
