It will only be the rims that are Borrani, alloy rims were a popular extra back in the day for these old Honda's, but as to value these days probably not much, as most people rebuild to standard rims. You MAY get a bit for them on e bay or similar if someone is doing a cafe racer build or similar, but to be honest the hubs if good are worth far more!

Hi Bryan, they are off a CB550 k3, unfortunately they are being sold with a CB550 k3 project bike I am selling,  trying to sell some stuff off I have collected over the years.
