1988 Honda VT500 

Smashing little V Twin

Nippy little V twin. the last of the old man’s toys. A VT 500E with an engine, wheels and forks from the Custom variant. So better front brake and much prettier wheels. The tail fairing and front mudguard never got painted as you can see. Seat has a split in it. Goes very well but the starter clutch sounds like it’s on its way out. Speedo doesn’t work. Mileage is unlikely to be accurate, but the motor is really very good. Frame was blasted and powder coated and is very sound. Gears are one up, four down, so presumably the linkage needs reversing. Brand new tyres. New shocks, rechromed and ground fork stantions. Very recent battery. Exhaust and silencer are one-off stainless steel and are a bit, er, noisy. Less than 100 miles from full service. MOT till July 2023. Currently on SORN. Clymer manual included. Box of spares, including good 500E forks, pair of carbs, almost complete gasket set, set of carbs; Custom variant yokes, handlebar switch gear etc. Great winter bike. Cash on collection only.
