Post-Sale Update: After 12 bids on eBay, this Honda GB500 sold for $4,200.

In the late 80s, Honda took a risk and gave the world a beautiful motorcycle inspired by 60s thumper racers of the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy race – bikes like the Manx Norton and AJS 7R. Originally created as a 400cc bike in Japan, the bike got a bump in displacement to 500 cubic centimeters, and was then exported as the Honda GB500 across the world. The United States only got this beauty for 2 years, as sales were poor. Now, it’s a modern classic, and a personal favorite of mine. This GB500 (VIN: JH2PC1616KK000417) has 25,298 miles on the odometer and some minor imperfections, but it runs well, looks great, and would be the perfect rider that you wouldn’t be too terrified to get a scratch on. A previous owner even got hit on this bike, but the only damage was a dent on the muffler and the right rearset was broken off. Everything is stock except for Napolean bar end mirrors.
