    cx500T motor swap

    hey all new to the site and was curious if anyone would know if a cx500 turbo motor would bolt right into a 1980 cx500 deluxe frame? (looks like a different radiator for sure)
    and also it seems like parts are not cheap due to the rarity of the bike. Any advice would be great
    thanks!

    No, it won't simply bolt in without work (including reinforcing the frame, the original frame is not as strong/stiff as the Turbo chassis).

    Also, welcome!

    Is that in the States?

    Pop your location in your forum profile and it'll appear under your username... oh, and put whatever bike you have in your sig so we don't need to ask if you have any more questions

    Hello Todd,

    The Turbo you bought must have been a nice one before it was damaged during a fluding.
    I see from the pictures that the front blinkers are intact, they are worth quit a lot on ebay.
    The same is for a complete key set, consisting of an original key, master switch, fueltank cover with emblem and the side cover locks.
