Breaking my trusty steed.

Post by ANDYC on Thu 08 Jun 2017, 3:13 pm

As I can no longer use my CB500s as a mule to test my engine. I have decided to break it and make some space in my garage and hopefully some funds to help in the completion of my project bike.
Before everyone rushes for the forks/wheels/brakes I can tell you that they're not the standard ones. 
I'll list parts as I get to clean them over the next week or so. I do have many other standard parts too.
I'm in the Windsor area and collection would be welcome.

Possibly interested in the rad covers - though you've put cb500s so I'm presuming yours is the fared variant?

Mine had to be modified to clear the 160 tyre. I may have a standard one though. I'll check tomorrow and let you know.

I'll pass up on that as I've just found my spare rear disc. Did you have any luck on finding those plug coils wornsprockets asked about yesterday.

Hi Andy,

Do you have the radiator fan cowl e.g. the bit the radiator fan is held onto the radiator with? I live fairly close by so could collect if it is good condition (mine has rusted to bits).

Thanks,

Steve

Sorry for the late response Steve. 
I ditched the cowling many years ago. It is almost impossible to remove it without snapping off the three mounting points.  I do have a good radiator but it has a gsxr 750 fan fitted. Much lighter and efficient. I'll get it cleaned up and post a picture so you can see what I mean.

Thanks for looking Andy. 

I have already got a new radiator and have ordered the very expensive cowl from David Silvers, but it is on back order, so I was trying to find a quicker way to get my bike back on the road.

I would be interested to see how you have mounted a gixer fan on though! I presume the radiator and fan is bolted/mounted straight onto the unmodified CB500 frame? I have a 1997 PC26 so I am not sure if it is the same as your 500S. Let me know how much you are asking for the radiator/fan combo, if it is a viable replacement for mine.

Cheers,

Steve

Hi Andy,

What is your ebay seller id? Can't seem to find it when searching for CB500 radiator.

Cheers,

Steve

That's because I haven't had a chance to clean it up and list it yet. It will be on here before fleabay though.

Hi Andy,

I realised that once I found your member ID ... sorry for hi-jacking your thread!

I am following you on ebay now :-)

Thanks,

Steve
