The 1978 HONDA CB550K for Sale has its original paint and decals and the motorcycle's chrome is also pretty nice. There are a few minor nicks in the paint on the fuel tank that are visible if you look closely and the side covers are pristine.

The only modifications made to the bike include the installation of Kerker 4-into-1 exhaust, Koni shocks, engine guards, a Travelcade motorcycle seat and a headlight modulator that makes the high-beam strobe flash for better visibility.

The old Honda motorcycle has only 14,5xx miles on it with the last 3500 miles logged by me while riding this spring and summer. .


Here's a list of the work done and parts that have been replaced:
Top end rebuilt including all engine gaskets from cylinders up including the head gasket replaced.

Carbs completely rebuilt, synched and jetted for best performance.

Removed pod filters and restored original stock air intake with UNI filter and changed fork oil

Rebuilt front brake master cylinder and caliper, new stainless steel brake lines

Replaced steering head bearings with roller type
Changed engine oil and filter (9/13) and cleaned oil pan and sump

Fuel tank cleaned (no rust, tank coating was not required)

New (8/13) Kenda Challenger motorcycle tires, professionally installed

Replaced petcock

Adjusted valves, cam chain and timing

Rear brake cleaned, inspected and adjusted

New Motion

Pro throttle cables (pull and push), choke cable and clutch cable

New battery

New drive chain and sprockets

Professionally installed custom Travelcade seat cover. I am also throwing in a flat, stock seat off a 1977 CB550K, which is the only other year that fits this bike, but it needs to be re-upholstered.
