    How many of you guys are within driving distance of Durham, NC?

    I'm debating a massive sell-off of CX and GL parts in the near future, and I'm curious how many people would be interested in perusing my parts lot, shooting the shit, and maybe throwing a burger on the grill.

    Just an Old Rant not very Important:


    'Eager" 1979 CX500C Maroon.
    Name is derived from the sound of this engine at highway speeds.
    Like its eager to go.
    had a Horse that was "Eager"
    But didn't sound the same.
    So I called him "Duke"

    About 3.5 hrs for me. I'm in Chesapeake, VA. Depending on when your planning to sell, the wife & I get down to that area about twice a year for a biannual event at the fairgrounds.

    I am little less then 2 hours from there. I would certainly be interested. I am probably going to need several parts once I really get started trying to revive the CX500 I have. Even if I don't I would enjoy meeting some other guys from the area.

    I'm in NE TN about 250 miles and 4 hours or a bit more for fill-ups and leg stretch breaks...
    But a car would not need filled up as often...

    Unfortunately about 8 hours with the current I-85 woes. The only thing I need at this point is a GL500I front end so I can get the dual discs.

    Clearing room out at the homestead, eh?
    All I wanted was a Pepsi
