    Looking for a CX500 deluxe tank in good condition. Paint not important.

    These seem to be a bit hard to find but I will ask anyway.

    I need a 1980 or equal CX500 Deluxe tank in good physical condition, no major dents or rusted interior.

    I have a lot of nice stock parts for a 1980 CX500D that I can offer in addition to some cash. For example, original Honda mirrors with Honda logos on the glass surface. Full instrument package ect ect

    I am located in Cincinnati Ohio.

    bump, we are still looking for a tank! I dont want to have to buy a whole bike just for the tank and part out. But this is what it looks like we might have to do.

    How good does good have to be? I have one, but it's going to need a treatment with POR-15.

    I know there's a deluxe tank at my local scrapyard (and most of a CX500). I keep debating on going to pick it up....

    Get it, of course. The tanks are going up in value, so if it's reasonable, get it and sell it here for a little profit and make somebody happy!

    If you still have budget room, here's a bike in the OH area. Might be worth the bits at 900 o/b/o 1980 CX500D for sale

    Actually, the one I had in my shop for years is cleaning up better than I imagined it would. Maybe I will give it a day or two and possibly it will be available.

    Yeah, Vintage Cycle (the guys are crazy). I didn't ask how much cuz I've never been a fan of the deluxe tanks, but maybe I'll swing in this week and ask. Some builds look amazing with them, but it wasn't gonna fit with my idea on my build. If you're going, when you walk into the yard it's a little off to the right. It was moved to there from where it was previously. It kind of makes the corner before you turn into the right side that's full of trail 90s. Sun faded red deluxe tank.
