Paul Martin’s Honda CB500 Four

Classic Motorcycle Mechanics - - NEWS -

Here are a cou­ple of pic­tures of my Honda CB500 Four that I pur­chased and re­stored in 1999; it has fea­tured be­fore in CMM! It was sup­plied new in 1975 in Candy Gar­net Brown (reg­is­tered late, as the 550 was avail­able that year so it had ob­vi­ously sat in the show­room for a while!). I re­cently sourced an­other tank and side-panel set and had them sprayed in Candy Gold by Menno Dek of Tan­klack­iere in Ger­many and re­freshed the restora­tion. I al­ways pre­ferred this colour back in the day, I now have two sets and can change them over within 10 min­utes, cre­at­ing a dif­fer­ent ma­chine!
