    It’s poetic and ironic, that in the face of bikes today that comparatively speaking can go to the moon, we fawn over such machines as the wonderful CB500/4. One of my top three or better (if I took time to count) all time favorite vintage Hondas. No other machine has that classic, dare I say Baroque, “it all seems to just fit together properly” styling. And it’s uniquely 500, as the 550 lost a bit of it and by the late 70s (77/78 550s are ugly by comparison — though having the best carburetion) the 550 had complete lost its way, styling wise, maybe to suit American tastes, I don’t know. Here’s to the machine that always, upon looking at its profile, makes me glad to be a motorcyclist!
