Additional photos of this 1976 Honda CB550F are available here for your perusal.

Built between 1974 and 1978, the Honda CB550 was “probably the best balanced Honda of the seventies,” according to this Silodrome recap. They go on to call it a “Goldilocks bike” as it fit in perfectly between the 400 and the 750 – the “CB550 was just right.”

It was offered in two versions, the K and the F. The was the standard model, while the F was the “Super Sport.” In both platforms, the SOHC inline four cylinder engine was paired with a five speed transmission. The F differed with a simpler paint job, 4-into-1 exhaust, and lower bars.

For 1976, Honda offered the 550F in Flake Sapphire Blue and Shiny Orange. Both options came with a dark brown seat and light green instrument faces.

This example is VIN: CB550F2007874, Engine #: CB550E-1118921.

The seller acquired it one year ago from a friend – the bike belonged to his friend’s father and had been sitting in his garage, unregistered since 1987.

Since then, the owner has covered approximately 600 miles. The odometer shows 17,187 miles.

The seller brought this Honda back to life by rebuilding the carbs and installing several new parts: tubes/tires, petcock, rear brake shoes, sprockets/chain, spark plugs, plug wires, and coils. He also installed a new front brake system (master cylinder, brake lines, caliper, and pads).

He also upgraded several parts, with an electronic ignition, voltage regulator, pod air filters, and Mac 4 into 1 exhaust. The sale includes the original header and airbox (not pictured).

The paint and chrome is all original.

The seller notes that it “doesn’t like to start in cold weather as it has a sticky float in one of the carbs.”

Currently located in Fort Wayne, Indiana, this CB550F is offered on a clean Indiana title.

The sale includes the owner’s manual and two keys.

The seller is letting it go “to make room in the garage for a new restoration.” Have any CB550 stories or questions about this listing? Let us know in the comments!
