For Sale 1980 Honda CX500 Cafe Racer / Scrambler, built by Renowned Motorcycle Builder Inglorious Motorcycles, & Featured in Built Magazine (Issue 6)

The Bike was originally first registered in California, where the bike has lived most of it's life. More than likely used as a commuter bike, as these were what the CX500's were designed & used for back in the 80's. This was up until 5 years ago, when the bike was imported into the UK and underwent an extensive rebuild to give it it's unique cafe racer / scrambler look, very popular in today's bike shed scene. The Main Modifications given to this bike include the following:  

- Powder Coated Black Engine & Frame

- Powder Coated Refurbished Original Wheels

- Steel Braided Brake Lines

- Overhauled Engine and Transmission 

- Rewired Wiring Loom, with Keyless Ignition System

- Minimalist Instrument Cluster

- Cafe Racer Style Headlight, with Integrated Light Gauges (High Beam, Indictors & Neutral)

- Small LED Indicators Front & Rear

- LED Rear Brake Light

- Comfort Scrambler Handlebar

- Bare Metal Brushed Tank with Lightning Bold Painted Graphic

- Performance Sponge Carb Air Filters

- Straight Through Exhaust (with small baffle to reduce drone noise)

- Exhaust Heat Insulation Wrap

- Dark Brown Cafe Racer Style Seat

- Custom Open Seat Frame

- Firestone Champion Deluxe Retro Tyres  

In my Ownership of the bike, I have meticulously looked after this one of a kind example, to the outstanding condition it is in today. Consistently detailing and protecting from corrosion with ACF-50 & other top of the range cleaning products.

I have also installed & regularly made use of a Trickle Charger Cable / Charger, ensuring the battery's health & longevity, as these v-twin engines notoriously use a lot of juice on a cold start. The bike has very recently had a Full Service & has had a replacement CDI unit installed (as these are prone to failing after 40 years).

The bike will be Sold with Service History & a Recent MOT. Advertised at £7,495. For any questions or queries, feel free to call Jack 07513 969466
