Description 1974 Honda CB550 Four not a CB 750 four

1974 Honda CB550
Four. 
The frame number appearing on this
CB550 is CB550-1023809 and the engine number appearing on this CB550 is
CB550E-1025744 making this a numbers matching correct original motorcycle. 
The odometer currently reads 3,802 original
miles which is the actual and correct mileage of this outstanding CB550. 
 I would like to stress the fact that this
CB550 should not be confused with the other CB550’s that are commonly offered
for sale that have been neglected, molested and were recently found in
someone’s garage. As you can see from the pictures, this CB550 is in overall extremely nice condition. . 
This CB550 is no doubt in the top tier as far
as condition, originality, cleanliness and correctness are concerned.
 As you can see from the pictures, this CB550 is in overall extremely nice, clean and correct original condition. It even still sports the original
tires in excellent original condition. 
The body work on this CB550 is original and the original flake orange
paint simply glows on the fuel tank and side covers.  The paint has absolutely no sun fade at all.
The fuel tank does have a coating inside as well. The original seat matches the
nice condition of the body work.  The
chrome is in overall nice, presentable original condition and shows
nicely.  The exhaust pipes are a strong
point on this example and have absolutely no rust through issues.  The left top muffler does have a small ding
in it that does not detract from the overall quality of this example.  The exhaust system as a whole is the nicest
original CB550 exhaust that I have come across to date on an original
example.   As a whole cosmetically, this
CB550 is a very, very outstanding original example.  The factory yellow final check paint markings
are present and most of the original finishes on this example simply glow.
The Chrome is not perfect it is showing signs that it is 40 years old but in my opinion should be left original. In fact this bike should be left as is with just some minor maintenance to get it back on the road. Everything will have to be checked and gone over before riding it.
As inspected, I would say that 98% of this bikes nuts and bolts have NEVER had a spanner on them
 it has not been ridden or started in
years.  It will no doubt need the
carburetors cleaned and brakes need to be gone over and any other general maintenance as recommended by Honda
if you plan to ride this example but it would be more suited for a
collection.  The engine currently turns
over smoothly with good compression as would be expected on a low mileage
original like this.  Even the original
fuel lines are present on this example.
 Overall this is a very nice, clean and correct
example of a 1974 CB550 that would be perfect to add to a collection, win with
at vintage motorcycle shows or take out and ride with some maintenance
etc.  It is becoming very difficult to
find original and clean examples of CB550’s and this is an outstanding example
in my opinion. I may have it running by the end of the week!!
No guarantee or warranty implied, bike is purchased as is where is. This is a 40 year old motorcycle, please don't expect it to be like new or run and ride like a modern bike.If you have no idea about how to ride and maintain a classic bike i would suggest  that you do not bid.
