1979 Honda CX500

In Japan, Standard by AbhiLeave a Comment

Honda’s CX series of bikes were ahead of the time when they debuted in 1978, with liquid cooling, shaft drive, the first wheels on a production bike to use tubeless tires, and electronic ignition that was isolated from the rest of the electrical system so that you could still bump start the bike if necessary. It was Honda’s first V-Twin and for reasons I don’t understand, they’ve become popular as a platform for custom builds as of late.

This example (VIN: CX500-2101906) has 13,844 miles and it’s said to be all original except for the battery, tires, and the “optional hard saddle bags” (though they just look like aftermarket pieces to me. Everything is said to work and it looks good except for a missing right side cover badge.
