Another Honda gem that never sold well. Do you have actual photos of the one 4-sale?

I was waffling on bidding $4200 on a GB500 on ebay a couple weeks ago, wouldn't have mattered because it sold for more than that.

I'd love to have one but most wind up selling outside my budget.

no dice from this buyer but no doubt it'll go quick when the right buyer sees it.

Here's the update:

It is a beautiful machine. It has the signs of normal wear, but has been maintained very well from going over it. The paint is excellent, very little corrosion, all the spokes are tight and there do not appear to be any modifications from the initial assessment.

One of the service techs has already called dibs and is purchasing it today. I talked with him and called second dibs if/when he ever sells it.
