Hi from East Anglia, UK, I'm pleased to be able to join this forum.
I have owned my 1973 CB250 K4 since 1982, now fully restored, its had a rough life, formally a field bike, cafe racer, abandoned, dismantled, unwanted & unloved it languished in damp sheds & garages for nearly 20 years until i had a yearning to restore her to its present state.... It's now cherished, ridden & enjoyed... albeit presently the engine is stripped down! .. following an unfortunate encounter with a compression tester deposited small parts in the RH cylinder!!

Welcome from sunny East Yorkshire ...I have 10 Honda's I am restoring from 750K0 down to CD125 but my beloved CB250SS (K0's) have a special place in my heart. I suppose it's because it was the bike I had at college (K2) Welcome to the forum...... plenty of advice here for you.

thanks for the comments guys, the pictures were taken a couple of years ago, since then more has been done to her. Unfortunately i didn't have the hindsight to take pictures during the restoration, but i have a few taken before the work began and will post one of them up.

Nice bike !! You have a CB250K0/K1 front hub on it ! Not a bad thing as they are quite rare. Does it have David Silver / made by Brituro silencers?
That's an interesting observation! The hub was original with the bike, I thought all the models featured the twin leading shoe set up?
Yes, the mufflers are Dave Silver specials.

Your hub has dimples between the spokes which were only on K0 250/350 & K1 350. Academic really just for anoraks like me . Funnily enough the 1968 CB250SS (K0) in Dave Silver's museum has an incorrect hub for the year (see pic attached). His K0 is Sardine Blue and he got it from James May and it featured in James's 'Manlab' TV programme.

The last CB350K's called CB350G or CB350B (not G5) had a front disc brake (my friend in Japan has one & is a member on here)

Best wishes ... Ash
