1999 Honda CB600 Hor­net

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Fettling -

Great fun naked 600 that’s seen bet­ter days. All weather rid­ing has re­ally taken hold of this Hor­net in the worst way. Cor­ro­sion abounds. It’s only show­ing 30K and has been run reg­u­larly as a com­muter so me­chan­i­cally it should be sound. Use el­bow grease rather than money to get it right and you’ll have your­self an eco­nom­i­cal lit­tle run­ner.

Gary says: Honda’s fa­bled fin­ishes had long since gone by the time this 600 rolled off the pro­duc­tion line. It looks like it’s been used in a salt mine. It’s not worth spend­ing a for­tune on, pow­der­coat­ing this and rechroming that, be­cause a much ti­dier one can be had for £500-600 more. It’d be a fun com­muter or a cheap track tool though. I’d steam in at £800.
