Mint 1977 CB550K for trade or possibly for sale : LUSENET : CB550 : One Thread

Have an excellent 100% all original 1977 CB-550K. 9xxx original miles. Always stored indoors. Was parked 2 seasons ago by original owner due to health reasons and been in storage since. Only cosmetic flaw is the typical muffler baffle rot out, otherwise she is tip top from front tyre to rear fender.

Prefer to do a straight up trade for a Honda dirt bike [XR-100, XR-200, 1989-1997 CR80/125/250] as this bike really should be enjoyed by a CB lover. Bike is in the NE Illinois area and I have several excellent pics available.

If interested, contact me via email with what you have to offer. Might possibly consider a straight cash offer, but again would prefer to do a trade.

I have seen similar examples sell for over $1500 on ebay and I'd consider this one probably a 9 or 9.5 out of 10 [and only for the fact that it has sat in storage for 2 seasons and the stock mufflers are showing the typical baffle rot].

Honestly, someone tosses me a realistic cash offer, I'd probably take it just to get it in the hands of someone that wants to enjoy this classic machine. I'm not looking to hold out for top dollar, but I'm not going to give it away for $900 either. Lets talk, summer is almost here.
