eBay 'specials' and other junk finds

A place to bang on about subjects close to your heart that affect us all as 400cc riders. general banter is rife, however rudeness and abuse seem to be the norm, If a bit wet round the ears best go play elsewhere. Auto pruning of items 31 days and older

Honda already made a much better looking cafe-racer around the same time as the NC30 anyway so why not just buy one of them and start from there.

Used to own one.. 500cc single. Great fun.

Yep..

GB500TT

You can buy the XBR500 too, they all came out late 80's.

The GB500 has spoked wheels which only the last XBR had.

Cracking fun though.. twin outport 500 single.. balancer shaft so not too vibey and good for over a ton.

Micron do a race system for it too!

Kick start with auto-decompressor AND electric start!



Lovely sound and feel
