I have been asked by an 84yr old if I know of anyone interested in two CX 500s. Both are 80/81. One is completely stripped following engine problems, The second he bought to keep him going while he fixed the other (which obviously didn't happen).
In 2007 he decided he had had enough and put them both in his shed and never touched them again. I put a booster on the battery of the second and it started after a couple of turns. This is in reasonable condition but with being left standing needs fork seals and brakes sorting plus a service etc. 54000 miles which is genuine but with no Mots to back it up. There are V5s for both in his name. there is a bit of rust (obviously) but nothing that a good polish wouldn't get rid of. The runners front mudguard is rusting through but the others is good enough to change over. He has asked me to sell them for him so I will collect this weekend and give them a wash and probably change the mudguard over to make it look more presentable. Asking price £650 ono. I am in a position to negotiate on his behalf, so all contact/dealing through me. (wife has forbid me to even contemplate never mind buy)
A couple of pictures to so on with. I have quickly washed the complete bike to give you a full impression. As I have mentioned it does run even after standing since 2007 but will need brakes/fork seals and a good service. I have run some Seafoam through the petrol tank (which is not rusty on the inside by the way).
Sorry the drifters mine, not for sale I,m afraid.
I brought the bikes home stops the chap having to deal with people. Unfortunately he is getting 'forgetful' and it wouldn't help people asking about his bikes as he can't remember too much.
Thanks For the help Pete.
