1973 Honda CB500 Chopper
Honda CB500 Chopper
After returning home from my second and last tour of Vietnam, The Republic Of, I purchased a brand new 1973 Honda CB500 off the show room floor. I had several crashes, chopping it as I went along;
Specs: CB 500 Motor bored out to 550cc - Amen Hardtail Frame with 30 Degree Neck Rake - Amen 16" Over Twisted Springer Front End - Amen Chromed Battery/Tool Box - Four-into-One Hooker Headers - Hallcraft Front Pad Brakes Hub with Custom Twisted Spokes Front & Rear - Twisted Apehanger Handle Bars - Amen Finned Clutch Chromed Cover - Amen Points & Alternator Chromed Cover - Amen Sissy Pegs - Amen Wheels Front and Back - Amen Taillight and License Plate Holder - Amen Chromed Chain Guard - Amen 6" Rear Fender I rode this bike until 1983, when I got married and started having children, thought it was too risky The last of my five children just turned 21...
I have been hauling this bike around for all these years and now I think its okay for me to enjoy it again...so I have tore it apart, painted it, chromed everything and am now putting it together. I think it is gonna be a Vietnam theme These pictures are circa 1974-1975. The bike is exactly the same today except for the paint job and more chromed. I will get some pictures of the rebuild.
