Post Sale Update: This GB sold for $3,050 after 10 bids on eBay in Torrance, California.
The GB500 is a frequent feature here on Bike-urious, but this one stands out as it’s a Japanese import in the purple color that wasn’t available in the US.
Besides the obvious change to a dash in kilometers, the Japanese model got different sidecover decals and a mini-plaque on the rear seat that said “Special Edition.” This example was acquired by the seller in 2018. He imported it from Japan and notes that it does not have a title. Besides a deep clean, it will need a carb clean and new battery before it runs again. The dusty odometer currently shows 55,928 kilometers (34,752 miles)
This one’s really just for a GB collector, I’d suspect. You can still find a clean one around with a little patience, but getting your hands on the JDM model isn’t easy. If it intrigues you, find this GB for sale in Torrance, California with bidding up to $1,500 here on eBay.
