You don’t stop riding because you’re getting old, but you get old when you stop riding.

Post by Fair Weather Rider on Mon 26 Dec 2016, 4:19 pm

Hi all, new to Forum. Had a CB500 about 5 years ago and regretted selling it, so i saw this one for sale not far from me, so I went and bought it. It's rough, but that 's what I wanted, I'm not happy unless I am fiddling with my bike.
Had several Bikes since the CB and have ended up with a Virago 535S, which is just too nice for me, and it's a bastard to keep clean, so I tend not to use it much. on eBay for sale at the moment, item no. 330266119530. it's done about 9000 miles
Much happier riding around on something scruffy and reliable.

Will be using this site from time to time for parts and information.

Mike.

Welcome to the forum, I'm guessing you'd not be surprised to hear that there are a few new members here who have also recently rebought cb500's too.

Welcome to the forum. I couldn't find your eBay listing. Is the item number correct?

Cool! I have a 'weathered' CB500 too - you'll have to post a picture of your 'new' cb500 so we can see it!
