SOLD - 1978 Honda CX500 (18,668 miles) - $900
May 17, 2013 - This bike is no longer for sale.
This motorcycle is fully operational. It starts easily and runs well, with good acceleration and a smooth ride. I have owned this motorcycle since 2006, during which time it has been regularly run and garage kept. Since I’ve owned it, the following work has been performed on it.
2006 - repaired tail pipes (acceptable to and passed both PA and WV State inspections)
2009 - replaced water pump seal, de-coked engine, replaced spark plug wires and ignition switch
2010 - replaced fork seals, float bowl seals/pins, petcock, fuel line, and battery; corrected cam chain tensioner issue (related to a 1978 factory recall); flushed final drive oil
2011 - replaced tires and brakes
2012 - rebuilt/balanced carburetors, replaced spark plugs, air filter, fuel filter, and valve adjustment
I’ve regularly kept up on oil (and other fluid) changes and general maintenance/lubrication.
All other parts are (to my knowledge) original and in good condition. Several seams on the seat have split (see photos), but the underlying foam is in good condition (not torn/worn).
The title is free and clear and it has two sets of keys.
Local pickup only.

Fixing things should be easy enough. Finding the problem, that's the hard part.
It could be, it might be... try this, try that... OR diagnose the problem and fix it once.
