CB 500 Engine for sale

Post by davecb5002 on Thu 30 Nov 2017, 3:43 pm

Have got an engine for sale, good condition only 17,000 miles.
I bought this in 2014 to keep as a spare, from a breaker,who i know. Seen and heard engine before removal,all good. Is in good clean condition,complete with starter motor and all bits,water hoses etc.
Only thing I have done is removed water pump and stator cover and polished and replaced bolts with stainless cap bolts.
The trouble is CB500 engines are so reliable,can not see me using it,so would like to sell on to someone needing an engine. Because of the weight and difficulty trying to courier,would like collection from Oswestry,or will meet halfway if not to far.
Engine number is PC26E-2601005 and is from a 2002 CB500S, have receipt from dealer.
Looking for £250, is a bargain for someone.
Unable to put pictures on site, but if anyone is interested, message me and can send pics to E-Mail address

Boy I wish my engine looked like that.
Someone has painted mine.
They left the brush hairs in the paint.

Decided to reduce price of engine to £220, that is what i paid for it. I s a bargain really with only 17k miles. Any interest let me know. No hurry. If it does not sell will build a bike around it Sleep Sleep

Is there a typo in the date of the engine?

I am sort of interested, but am trying to work out if I can get there to pick it up.

EDIT: drat, just looked up a route to Oswestry; 230miles / 3h45m each way is a bit too far!

I'm on the lookout for an engine. Mine's approaching the 100.000 km mark and since I'm perfectly happy with the bike, stocking a spare engine seems a good idea. When the 'active' engine at some point develops a serious/wear-related issue, I can swap and move on. Then, a nice DIY-restoration job can be done in an orderly fashion rather than rushed through because the machine has to be pressed into service.

Any chance you would ship it? Please note that I live in Denmark Smile

Are all the mounting lugs good?
Exhaust studs ok?

No seized bolts or stripped threads?

Thanks for quick reply Dave.
If it is all you say it is, i'll buy it @ 220 only on the understanding that i can't physically get there to collect it until the end of January. Happy to bank transfer you a deposit to show willing - balance cash on collection. Let me know if you're ok with that we'll exchange details in PM cheers
