1989 Honda GB500 Cafe Racer

I debated about posting this 1989 Honda GB500. It is absolutely a cafe racer, but it isn’t one of the classic bikes or home-brewed specials that usually get posted. It appears to be completely stock and in great condition, but it does have about 42K miles on it.

The seller of the bike is some kind of classic car guy who probably has the bike on consignment from the owner. The listing has lots of pictures, some description, and so much legalese that it makes the seller look like a hard ass. So if you decide to bid, read the fine print very carefully. The auction has about 1 day left with 15 bidders and a current price of $4,350 (reserve not yet). It does have a Buy-It-Now of $5,995, which seems a bit high given the mileage on the bike. It’s a nice bike and amazingly clean given the relatively high number of miles.
