CB500/550 / Some luck at last! NOS HM323 pipes.
« on: February 01, 2020, 04:05:39 PM »
After months of searching high and low and no joy whatsoever I mentioned to a mate who I hadn't seen for a while that we couldn't get a set of pipes for the K0 project..... "I've got a brand new set in the loft that are still in the Honda boxes, they're no use to me. Also I've gota new tank and side panels if that's any use?"
Sometimes a bit of luck does come your way!

CB500/550 / Tachometer gear/cover wanted
« on: January 07, 2020, 09:57:52 AM »
Hi folks.
I wondered if anyone had a tachometer gear & cover lying around that they would like to sell (number 9 & 10 in the picture)? They are available at CMSNL new but they are not cheap and the cost of this project seems to be spiralling by the day. Thanks, Andy

Dave Silver and CMSNL are supposed to be having some sets of "pattern" systems available soon. Depending on where you are i could lend you a used motad to get it on the road till then
Thanks for the very kind offer. We are not ready for them just yet. Fingers crossed that some get produced soon.

Desperately Seeking!! / CB500 Four K0 exhausts
« on: October 01, 2019, 08:27:12 PM »
My Dad and I are desperately seeking a set of exhausts for our project.
We really would like to put the correct exhausts back on the bike but the ones on it are about 50% repair gum lol.
There doesn't seem to be any pattern parts available anywhere and I am lead to believe that originals are as rare as hens teeth.
Thanks in advance.
Andy and Pete.

CB500/550 / Re: K0 seat
« on: July 15, 2019, 10:22:17 AM »
Thanks Guys.
My Dad hasn't looked hard enough on the DS site then! Lol.
With the way that costs are mounting we may be better off spending £125 on the pattern part as it will probably be cheaper in the end as Trigger says.

Pretty sure I have a DSS pattern seat here, new in the box, unused. Will tare a look. James
He is very inpatient. Just had a text to say that he has ordered the seat

CB500/550 / K0 seat
« on: July 14, 2019, 10:36:27 PM »
Good evening,
The seat base on our 500 K0 project is rotten and unfortunately it has gone past the point of repair.
Does anyone happen to know if there are any available at the moment?
Even the pattern parts seem to be out of stock.
Thanks.
Andy and Pete.

Welcome to the forum Dad!
He's the brains behind the outfit.
I put some pictures of the bike on a few weeks ago but this is how it looks now..

Member 4 Sales / 1971 CB500 K0 shocks
« on: June 19, 2019, 05:10:06 PM »
Would anyone be interested in a pair of shocks that we have taken off our project bike? New top rubbers will be included.
We are asking for £30 plus postage although collection from the Midlands is also welcomed.
Thanks Andy and Pete.

No headlight reflectors on a K0  ;) Only on the ears .
Sorry, that's what I meant, the ones on the headlight brackets/ears

Hi folks,
My Dad and I are seeking some parts for our American import  1971 CB 500 K0.
We thought that someone might have some parts sitting around that they might want to sell?

Some of the parts that we are after are:

Seat.

Control switches.

Tank badges.

Headlight reflectors.

Thanks,
Andy and Pete.

CB500/550 / Re: Exhausts...End of the line.
« on: June 15, 2019, 06:21:14 PM »
The lack of available HM323 exhausts is going to make restoring a CB500 properly a real pain in the ass. Amazed they aren’t re-stocking sooner; surely there must be a demand for them?

Well I'm after a set for a start.
I don't understand why they can't just get them in to order? Does anyone know who the manufacturer of the aftermarket exhausts is? Might be able to go direct to them?
