Seller: andy_rs200 (137) 100%, Location: Basingstoke, Ships to: GB, US, AU, Item: 303059736543 I have decided to sell my Honda CX500 project as I no longer have the time to finish it. The bike is in generally good condition, and wouldn't take a lot to finish it to a decent standard. The paintwork is ok but the tank has gone slightly pink and has a few marks, so it could maybe do with a respray if you wanted it mint, or it could be left to maintain the classic look. The chrome on the bike is in ok condition, would come up well with a polish. The engine ran when I purchased the bike around 6 months ago but it did have a hesitation at low revs. I had the carbs cleaned and the valve clearances done, which did improve it. Unfortunately since sitting in my garage for the last 6 months its developed another running issue. It takes a few goes but it does eventually start and run but its a bit smokey and slightly hesitant to rev. I can't imagine it would take much to get it running properly again. In terms of modifications, the frame has been chopped at the rear with the plans to weld in a new u-bend section and mount the new flat seat, however I never got round to doing this. Both the u-bend and flat seat are included. I've also bought a new headlight with mount (was just a cheap one to get an idea of how to mount it). This is currently mounted but is not wired in. All of the existing wires are there, so it's just a case of removing what is not necessary and wiring in the light/indicators. The clocks are still plugged in but are no longer mounted. When the bike was running around 6 months ago, the brakes and gears both performed well with no issues at all there. They haven't been touched so this should still be the case. I have the original rear section, seat, engine bars, side panels, headlight surround, wing mirrors, mud guard etc which can be included if wanted. I have some partial service history for the bike, and have the full V5 in my name. Due to the age of the bike it's now tax and MOT exempt. The bike is located in Basingstoke and will need collecting. Please message me for any other info. I have only included a couple of photos as these are the only ones I have, but I will take some more and add them to the advert. The only difference to the bike from the photos is the original headlight surround is no longer on, and the aftermarket headlight is on there (shown in the 4th photo)On 17-Feb-19 at 16:02:52 GMT, seller added the following information: Just to clarify, this bike would need to be collected and transported home rather than ridden. It does not run well enough to be ridden at the moment.On 17-Feb-19 at 16:05:05 GMT, seller added the following information: I have added some additional pictures of how the bike currently looks. As you can see the clocks are still connected but not mounted. I will cable tie these in the original position to keep them in place for transporting. Condition: Used, Manufacturer: Honda, Model: CX
