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

I would love to know what the highest mileage recorded on a CB500 is? As you probably all know (according to Wikipedia) Honda predicted these machines would be good for 300K kilometres (plus minus 18000 miles) before a re build. Is this possible?

250k has been achieved. As far as I know it was on the same engine.

Thank you Sullivj,

You have made my day.
I got my CB just over a year ago with 6000km on the clock (genuine) It had been parked for a few years. I have done just over 8000km so far. So this looks like the beginning of a beautiful friendship..

will post a pic soon

You're very welcome.

They're fairly bullet proof it seems, especially if well serviced.

Nice to have found a low mileage one. We'll look forward to seeing a picture.
