    ...and based on the current price, it wins this thread.

    Asking price seems to be indexed to inflation, I'm sure 18 to 20 would have secured it previously.

    Apart from gash pipes it has no airbox, cut seat, wrong bars and mirrors. Bet it needs a crank/seals from sitting.

    Would love it with some money do something with it which would probably be special it but better.
    Or std but better.

    That's an $8 to $10k bike at best.

    When a Honda 500/4 sells for $9700.00....who knows, its less to do about the bikes and more to do with nostalgia.

    It's not worth 8.

    There seems to be many, many stupid asking prices out there, so it is interesting to see what this achieved.
    This one was not mint enough, early enough or just interesting enough to be worth that.
    Madness.

    OK so, I'll admit to owning a new metallic brown CB500 new, way back when. I'd disagree with your estimate of the value on all three of your counts. I can't remember but it may have been BIKE magazine, they were recommending buying CB500s over CB750s
    A) because they could still be had for less and
    B) because the CB500 is a nicer ride.

    A quick look around the 'Net tends to confirm my thoughts on the prices


    HONDA CB500 (1971) 500cc from Japan It's in a good condition. Almost all parts are original. The engine runs well. Drives well.
    8000 03-Nov-2018

    Honda CB500 1975 Gold, original paint with patina, Chassis Number: CB 500 2060057 Engine Number: CB 500E-2148562 Nice chrome, no rust One dent in one of the left side exhaust mufflers Original exhaust Engine starts and runs well Drives good No rust in petrol tank 5900 17.11.18

    There's one for 10,000 quid in Britain and another for 16,000 quid. It's almost starting to look like whoever bought that one on TM did quite well?

    Old bikes are expensive in Pommyland.

    I did check a US site and you could have a low mileage "barn find" CB500 for under US$2000, but when you'd invested all the required time and money it would have cost serious cash.
