I'm guessing it probably has a salvage title, but would still be worth jumping on if it's decent.

I just picked up this one over the weekend for @1,200.

That reminds me that I actually do need a project: anyone has an old Z50R or XR50 they want to unload for cheap?

I'm very interested in this CX. I made contact with the seller and will be calling him this evening. What questions should I be asking? I'm not very familliar with the CX. I just love how they look. Do you think it's priced well?

I'll preface this by saying that I have never owned a CX500. I do really like them though, and have always wanted one.

I recall the Brits calling these things Japanese Beetles or something to that effect when I was over there. It seemed there were tons of them on the road there, and "you just couldn't kill them" no matter what you did. Historically, they were very reliable motorcycles.

I remember somebody at Barber this past weekend had owned a CX500 at one point. Paging Hunter and Mark to the courtesy phone...

It was me. And if I hadn't just bought another bike this weekend, I'd have been all over that CX500.

Tell me this, It appears that in order to put a classic cafe seat that is flat but has the rear hump, I'm would have to do some cutting and welding of a custom top hoop. Is this correct? If I were to pick one of these up, I'd want to be able to hide the battery in the seat hump.

Well, I was partially correct. I was thinking it was either Hunter or Mark, but it was you. Beer sometimes makes my recollection of conversations a bit hazy.

I cannot affirmatively answer this, but I can speculate with the best of them.

Looking at that rear subframe, I'd say that you probably aren't getting a battery back there without some frame cutting, even if you were able to get a cafe seat with a bum stop to fit.

If I were in your shoes, I'd be calling Hotwing Glass down in Florida. The man knows his cafe seats, especially fitment. He'd be able to give you a better idea, and a price quote on a seat.

But honestly, I think that seat looks damn good the way it sits.

I actually do like the current seat, its the way the battery looks that I don't like.

You might be able to get one of those high speed agm batteries in there. Or, you could go total old school and do a magneto. ;-)

Dan, I have a CX 650 Turbo and while this engine design is stout and reliable, they do have their issues. Most glaring is the stator windings live deep inside the cases and swim in a bath of hot oil. Replacing them at 40,000 miles was not fun as the engine has to come out then cases split. 2nd issue would be weak starter motors and D, valves tend to get out of adjustment easily (at least on my Turbo).

Man! You are full of surprises my friend. Those turbos are selling for good money. I'll call you for some advise tonight. I have my friend in Greensboro going to look at the CX tomorrow.
