“I used to have one of those.”Honda CX500

The Honda CX500 is one of those bikes that many of us have owned over the years. Should you fancy reliving those yesteryear memories, then it is good news there is still plenty of them out there 40 years on.

Honda CX500Looks tidy, what’s up with it?”

This CX500 was in daily use until 2015 when it was parked up. It hadn’t moved much since until it was loaded up and fetched back to the yard. I have made no effort to start it, so it’s being punted on for a restoration project.

There is some surface rust to much of the chrome and metal parts but nothing too nasty.

The exhaust looks solid and it is mostly original and unmolested.

“What is it worth?”Honda CX500

CX prices are up and down like a lift. I’ve sold some right sacks of shit for strong money. This one will go to market at £995, then we’ll see from there.
