Honda CB550 K0 1974 CB 550 Restoration eBay

Relisted due toprevious listing in wrong category


1974 (M) Honda CB550K0 with V5 and spare engine.


I have had this bikesince 2006 and after initially rebuilding it in 2007 to be a very tidy rider, afew years ago I dismantled it to create some space for my other projects andbegan a slow restoration but unfortunately I have now run out of both space andtime to finish this old girl.

The spare enginesupplied is the original engine as listed on the V5 and was a runner when thebike was dismantled. I sourced another 1974 engine with only 15k miles on itwhich is the one currently in the bike.

 The bike willobviously need to be gone through completely but I have rebuilt it to show thatit is mostly there rather than selling boxes of parts. It was never intended tobe a perfect show-pony resto and so the bike carries some age-related patina ona number of parts. There is a mix of new and re-used original parts but themajor features are listed below: –

  • Powder coated frame, stands, bottom yoke, engine brackets all in gloss black
  • Top yoke, electrics bracket, front brake assembly all in satin black
  • Chrome plated rear brake pedal, rear brake rod, rear brake stay
  • Vapour blasted and rebuilt engine bottom end and barrels
  • New piston rings
  • Side panels in original Flake Sunrise Orange paint
  • Lots of polished alloy
  • Decent tyres
  • New nuts, bolts, washers


Work still required:-

  • Top end requires cleaning and rebuilding but is all there
  • Carbs similar
  • Tank is solid but obviously needs paint
  • Clocks need a respray but are otherwise in good working order
  • Seat lock bracket missed the powder coat run!
  • Rear wheel untouched and whilst solid, cosmetically it needs a rebuild
  • Master cylinder seal kit required
  • Chain and sprox required
  • Front wheel was rebuilt with stainless spokes some years ago but the chrome rim now has some pitting
  • Original header pipes supplied but that is the only exhaust I have
