I guess that's not a bad price really Ash. The seller does give plenty of honest information although I don't think it will want to start even with fresh petrol etc!
It's obviously going to need a full strip and rebuild but the overall price I would say is good considering how much the individual parts could be worth if the bike was broken.

Doesn't look bad for that money.

It's a little sad looking without it's full set of pipes,  shows just how much a part of the bike they contribute.

Don't know much about 500's but that looks like a bargain to me.

Funny Ash, I saw that when first listed and thought a good buy at the right money. The location at Hull I thought you or an acquaintance would be onto it! Nice one, your mate should be pleased.
One day I'll have the time to restore it, not just talk and dream....

Egg on face. I am sure I saw a black 500 in Hull area last week. Age and confusion!  :-X

That is a nice looking run/restore project. Just sent the details to a mate who is looking for a CB500 👍.
