Hi everyone Andy from Staffordshire here.
« on: May 10, 2019, 06:31:25 PM »
Hi ladies and gents,
Thanks for accepting me as a new member of the forum. My Dad and I have just purchased a 1971 CB500 K0 which has been imported from America. We are planning on restoring it to its former glory. I'll apologise in advance for the silly questions that will no doubt start once we get the project under way.

Nice model, shame about the colour! Not a very early one by crancase shape. Would be interested in details from vin plate to add to my list.
