I like your 550. It is clean and neat, to me it just right. I have a CB 500 modified.  Not a real chopper. But satisfies me . I have three more Honda's All changed to suit me.  Happy riding !!!!       dabo 43.
Thanks, David.

Cool Man, I've got that same springer on one of the two CB 750's I'm building. I'm also building two VT 500's, one CB 360T, and a CB400 four Super Sport. I Love my HONDA's! 3:)

I changed up the headlight and added highway bars.  Got it running REAL good.  BTW - it is a 72 cb500 frame with a 78 cb550 engine just fitted with a big bore kit.  Nothing like fresh holes!

Hey man nice bike, wondering what size main jet and idle jet you have used for your carbs with the pod filters, trying to figure somethings out for my project.
