2004 Honda CBF 500 – Available to Order in the colour of your choice Priced from £7,000
For nearly a decade now, Honda’s quiet but remarkably popular CB500 has been something of a well-kept secret, winning quite a following among despatch riders and riding schools, and even weekend racers, many of whom competed in the Honda sponsored CB500 Cup races.
Often first purchased as merely a cheap and easy commuter, the CB500 soon proved itself to be a great all-rounder, ably doing its duty as day-to-day transport, but still offering ample reserves of performance to scratch up tight and twisty roads or cruise along happily on the motorways.
Still, 10 years after its debut, the CB500 was long overdue a major freshening up. Not just in style and looks, but in concept. What was called for was a more modern and distinctively European look and feel. The CBF500 is a bike that combines an easy reach to the ground when at stop, light, responsive handling not only at speed but in the hustle and bustle of urban traffic conditions, and a predictable power delivery that never gets out of hand.Using the same 499cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin that powered the 1994 CB500, the sleek new CBF500 sets the standard in its class for easily accessible riding fun and excitement. Featuring a counter-balancer for silky-smooth operation at high revs and low, and high-performance slanted flat-slide VP carburettors for quick and powerful response, this engine delivers a near-perfect combination of easy operation and peppy performance with the added benefits of superb fuel economy, low emissions and long term reliability.The CBF500’s new six-spoke wheels feature a double spoke design. Strong and sure braking control is supplied up front for the standard version by a new single dual-piston calliper firmly gripping a large 296mm drilled rotor between sintered metal pads.
Here at Kevils Speedshop we have taken a clean original example of this 56bhp 125mph machine and given it the Kevils treatment, custom fabricated rear subframe, fitted a freshly painted 1970s honda CB tank, stripped, cleaned and rebuilt the whole bike, black satin powder coated the frame. We added six spoke 17″ alloy wheels and high custom fenders, hidden the battery in a box behind the engine and added a classic faced speedo. We added LED lighting, hidden all the wiring, TKC tyres for a chunky scrambler look, Gold DID Chain and sprockets, a bates style headlamp & taillight, pod style air filters, stainless exhaust header and stubby silencer, black braced handle bars making this not so cool looking bullet proof machine cool!
