Honda CX500 1978 - Wow! 20091
Remember these? They were the unsung heroes of those going to work in all weathers and the motorcycle couriers who used them because they just kept going. They generally got little care and attention and so they were run into the ground. Most of the ones which did survive have been turned into specials to use the unburstable motors.
Well, here is a survivor. This bike has not been restored, we really did buy it like this. The cosmetic treatment it has had consisted of a wipe with a soft cloth. With bikes of this quality we put them to one side for a bit more attention before they go out. With the numbers of bikes we sell we have to take these out of the line. If you want it, it will go to the front of the queue and be prepped.
That said, the bike had been stood for a number of years and has had a carb clean and new clutch plates and benefits from a new battery. The chrome and ally parts are really nice, probably the best we've seen in on one of these in a long while (probably ever).There are a few small dents in the tank but then you'd expect it to have some signs of use!
This is a rare chance to grab a one owner great condition original CX 500. These we rarely find in such caring private hands from new. This is very much a one off chance to grab a piece of motorcycling history! Love em or hate em they just kept on going no matter what and this is a rare loved and cared for example.
