1976 CB550 Exhaust/Sidecovers

greenspun.com : LUSENET : CB550 : One Thread

Is there any reason a 1976 CB550K would have "CB500" printed on its exhaust pipes? Did Honda use pipes from the CB500 on these bikes at any point? Also, did Honda make sidecovers WITHOUT anything printed on them, just a flat color? Thanks in advance!

My '76 CB550 exhaust is the same as you mention. I don't think they made the sidecovers w/o emblems. They either had the sticker or the raised emblem. Could be wrong about this.

I just found a 5,000 mi. one owner 1976 Honda CB550 with the original exhaust and its marked just like yours. I dont know about the sidecovers but I don't remember seeing any which were flat paint.
