1979 Honda CB550K3

The smelliest bike to date, collected from its resting place of the last 15 years in a barn next to an open sewage plant with a 600 mile round trip! Stripped down to its component parts the frame was de-lugged and shortened with a new rear hoop added then blasted and powder coated. Anything that wasn’t absolutely necessary was binned and the engine received a top end rebuild followed by a generous helping of silver and black enamel. The whole package was topped off with some freshly rebuilt wheels and a Vonzeti café racer seat and tank combo. Half litre bikes don’t get much more fun than this!
