Description HONDA CB500/4 ex-Dennis jenkinson cafe racer / sprinter

A gorgeous and tidy machine which runs like a dream and never fails to bring an ear-to-ear grin to anyone fortunate enough to twist the throttle. 
Originally owned and used by Denis Jenkinson from November 1974, the original brown CB500f was modified to look like how it does now by a friend of denis' whom wished to realise denis' plans for the bike. these changes include:
 - front disc brake replacement to as Norton TLS drum brake
 - rebuilt engine
 - painted frame
 - alloy fuel tank 
 - glass fibre racing seat
 - megaphone exhausts
 - racing rearsets for a better riding position

Perfectly described in the restorer's notes as 'the perfect jenks bike: offensively loud and distinctly red.' It truly has to be heard to be believed. 
Documents include old-style v5 in jenk's name, a new V5C, restorer's notes, the original Dixon Racing ltd invoice, Daylight MoT, and also included is a rare and valuable copy of the 1997 book 'Jenks, A Passion for motorsport'. A second fibreglass seat (pictured) is included as well. 
Please no time-wasters, you are bidding on a one-of-a-kind sprinter which will make the perfect collector's item.
Happy Bidding!
