Originally I was fixing this bike to get it back on the road so the owner can use it again now that it's running with a years mot his wife won't let him have it back so now I've got the job of selling it.
Has anyone got any ideas how much it's worth?

Obviously it depends on their condition and how original they are. These were the only two CB550s I could find on Ebay and Autotrader in good condition.

That's a link to the album it's nowhere near mint but it's not a rust bucket id say it's probably average to good for its age it's 99% original only the exhaust silencer and fuel tap are aftermarket most of the chrome polished up nicely just a little bit of rust on the chain guard

Do you think £3000 to £3500 seems a fair price it's half what the shiney ones are going for

offer it up for £4250 and see what response you get. Have you got time to polish up the wheels?
