Vintage Yoshimura Egli CB500 Racebike


The road trip ended up being called off, so no project bike for the time being, and another posting on the blog can be made.

While this bike will never really be a street-going cafe racer, it is very interesting. Based upon a 1975 CB500 (maybe), the only Honda parts seem to be motor parts, the rest is all really cool racing parts either vintage in availability, or hand made. The seller claims it is an ex-AHRMA race bike, but no provenance is given beyond that as to its original race history. We can dare to dream that it was raced nationally in the late seventies, but who knows…

Regardless, it is a beautiful bike that is at $4,550 in the auction, but reserve hasn’t been met. Descriptions of all the things done to this bike are in the listing, but all the photos are here…
