a true bulldog bike shopped used for 600bucks in 2009 - living in a friends farm house in northwest spain  now - only 10kms to the atlantic coast.

 

The GB 500 was my initial dream bike !!!! - but as usual totally unaffordable in those days for poor me - 10000 DM was the sticker price Honda dealers asked for in 1992.

I drove the 3000km from here to Santiago de Compostela in three and a half days through rain and fog.

Today it is , according to the spanish Honda Classic Club, one of 6 XBRs registered in Spain. Cause in the 80ies Spain was not Honda Country as it is today.

As outcome of Franco politics they started importing foreign bikes in 1986. Before Guzzi was the only "foreign" brand known. Argentino and guzzi owner De Tomaso had a factory and deal with "el Caudillo and his gang".
