1976 Honda CB550F Supersport manufactured 5 / 75 but is a 1976 model as stated on the VIN tag.
Bike runs great and is reliable. It's a great example to leave as-is and enjoy the rest of the riding season this year. Gets a lot of attention and compliments around town. This is a very nice mostly original CB550F Supersport we found in a garage outside of Boise, Idaho. It was owned by an older man and looked to be well-maintained and cared for. It has a very healthy sounding motor and was sitting because the clutch went out on it.
The bike has been thoroughly gone through mechanically when we performed a full tune-up and has been detailed cosmetically. We've put about 300 miles on it since the work was completed and have had no running issues. The compression is good. The reading was 145 lbs across all 4 cylinders when tested cold.
Video of starting sequence and a test ride:
The motor does have a few small spots seeping oil that are completely normal for a bike of it's age that has not had an engine rebuild. It drips a couple small drops after a longer ride but otherwise it has been completely dry under the bike. This does not affect the reliability of the bike or cause any issues while running.
Back of muffler has a hole in it from rust or corrosion it looks like. Other than that the bike is almost 100% rust free. Seat has wear on it and the bike has completely normal patina everywhere other than the repainted tank and side covers.
Mechanical work we performed on the bike:
Replaced tires with Dunlop K81's and new inner tubes.
Installed new clutch friction discs, springs and clutch cover gasket.
Removed, cleaned and completely rebuilt the carbs with K&L kits and new o-rings for the crossovers.
Changed oil, replaced the battery, adjusted cam-chain, adjusted brakes, clutch and lubed cables.
Set timing on the points and synced carbs.
We removed the aftermarket windscreen, large rear rack, large signals, taillight.
Repainted the tank and brand new side covers.
Powdercoated the tank emblems.
Installed new Lucas style taillight and Posh grips.
