I am quite sure that I have never seen one of those in the wild here in the states. How much to ship it to Idaho?
 
I've never even seen a GB500 here in the US, no street bike singles that large from Honda. It's odd to me the choices Honda makes about what country gets what version of bike.

Weren't a big seller, so Honda sent the unsold ones to Europe. Now selling for huge money. An uncrated one recently sold at a Las Vegas auction for about $30000
 
I had a chance to demo ride a GB500 back in the day. I think it was at a big Rider rally in Kentucky. All the Japanese companies as well as Harley and BMW brought their Demo fleets. I remember the GB500 being one of the most fun bikes I rode.
 
Very rare bikes. I have only seen a few in person. I also got a nice look at the dohc 50cc at the dealer once. It was $6k in 2005.
 
I remember seeing a GB500 parked in Boston in 2002 but I couldn't stop to have a better look. Later in 2008 or 2009 I spotted one on display at the now defunct Moto-Cafe in Acton, Mass. It looked great but had more cobwebs than I'm comfortable with for a bike that lived indoors.
