Post Sale Update: This GB sold for $5,500 after 13 bids on eBay.
Every once in a while, for a variety of reasons, a good bike goes unsold. The Honda GB500 Tourist Trophy was a replica of a 60s racers that competed in the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy. It had a 500cc single, gorgeous lines, weighed less than 400lbs, and sold very few models. Thumpers are a personal choice, but to those that subscribe to their vibrations they offer a great (and relatively low maintenance) riding experience.
This example (VIN: JH2PC1619KK000220) is number 220 off the assembly line and was owned by racer Tony Murphy. Information on Tony is included in the listing. The bike itself has only 5,200 miles and includes the original tool kit. Modern Metzler tires and aftermarket shocks elevate the riding experience. The current California residence backs up the listing’s rust free claim. For more on what makes the GB500 so special to ride, check out this Riding Impression from none other than Peter Egan.
