Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

No I needed the space so I'm breaking it.
I was in need of retiring from the game more than the bike, if the truth was to be told Very Happy

That's a colossal mileage Andy. I'm guessing it's a bit of a Trigger's broom of a bike at that? Also, will you miss riding?

Stripped it completely, have used all plastics and tank on mine (Was red) looks good yellow. Also used Fuel end Can as mine was a bit noisy, rear brake disc, Front Master Cylinder and brake hose, Clocks (as mine were grotty) and a load of other parts off it.
Still have engine frame and wheels, in shed.
It has saved me a fortune.
Cheers.

Are you sure you want to break such a record setter? It's possibly the highest milage cb500 in the world! Does it still run?

Yes it ran fine. A few rattles here and there but was showing 50 ponies on the dyno not so long back.
I break bikes for a living now so I needed the space.
It was too modified to sell. And realistically would you buy one with that mileage. Regardless of their legendary reliability?
