I introduce myself

Post by MinobuCB on Sun 09 Jul 2017, 6:12 pm

Hello, I am Juan, from Barcelona, ​​a little more than a month ago, I bought a CB 500 from 2001, very little wanted and taken care of, which I spoil to return to his youth.
In the same way, I have love, I hope to finish fixing it to enjoy it properly.
I am 41 years old and this is my third motorcycle, after a Honda SLR 650 and a Yamaha FZ600S Fazer Mk1.
Greetings to all.

Welcome to the forum Juan.

Are there many CBs available to buy in your area, or are they somewhat of a rarity there?

Hi Juan,
welcome.
Mine is also showing its age.
It has had things done that perhaps could have been done better in the past.
I picked it up a year ago and am slowly fixing things.
I can feel it smiling more each time.
