Were you meaning with CB500s, motorcycling or this forum?

The forum is easy: just wade in and post stuff and people will reply.

CB500s:  try ebay or gumtree, if you post the links up here people can have a look and give you their opinion

motorcycling:  that's slightly more difficult, have a look here: http://www.geton.co.uk/

Hello,
       I ride a Vmax as my road bike I am looking for a CB500 to race. So any advice on how to get started on that would be great.

Cheers

Ah ha!  I see!

There are a few people on here who have a bit of knowledge about racing.

There are sometimes race-ready CB500s on ebay; I have no idea how they compare cost-wise to preparing one yourself but they might be worth a look.

I think if I was doing it I'd try and find a 'project' bike and take it from there.

The CB can be a quick track bike - on a recent track day at Donington I met a guy on a CB who was in Group 2 so must have been doing sub 2 min laps. I was averaging 2:10 a lap and I was on a Superduke 990..
He was a really nice bloke too!
