Description Honda cb550

For sale is my very original, lightly restored UK supplied Honda CB550. It has had 3 previous owners from new and has spent all its life in the North of England, mainly on Teeside and more recently with me in Cumbria. The 1st owner, Mr Simmonds from Middlesborough  kept it for 3 years until 1/8/81 when it passed to a Mr Fletcher from Darlington. 
Mr Fletcher kept the Honda until 26/11/2011 when ownership tranferred to a Mr Wheeler from Northallerton.
 I purchased the Honda from Mr Wheeler on 01/07/2014 and it finally left Teeside and came with me to Cumbria.I have all MoT certificates dating back to 1995 when the mileage was 39480.
An Mot from 2003 shows the mileage to have risen to 41867 and on 29/03/2004 the Honda was declared as SORN continuously until 31/3/2011. (I have all the SORN documents).
The next MoT on 02/4/12 shows the mileage as 41873 rising to 43338 on 3/4/2013, then 44799 on 4/8/2014, and finally 45032 on 10/7/15.
When I recommisioned the Honda, it required a rebuild of all 4 carbs, a fuel tank flush, new points, coils, plug leads and caps, oil and filter change, plus a brake fluid change and new brake pads.
Where possible, genuine Honda parts from David Silver or CMSNL were used. I have the reciepts.
The bike now starts easily on the button or kickstart and runs and rides as it should.
It passed its MoT test with no advisories.
The wheels have been rebuilt with new DID rims, new spokes and tyres.
All 4 exhausts are original Honda. There are no holes or patches, however the chrome is dull and on the upper silencers has marked by pillion riders boots and throw over panniers. Please see the close up pictures. 
Chrome on the Mudguards and fork legs is excellent.
The rest of the chrome is very good if not perfect.
All light and indicator lenses are marked Stanley and appear original.
I have both original Honda keys which fit all locks, unfortunately the barrel in the steering lock is seized and the lock cannot be used. 
Viewing is welcome and encouraged, remember the Honda is 39 yrs old and will be tax exempt next year so please look at the pictures and ask questions.
I live 5 miles east of M6 junc. 44.
