Brand new tires, front and rear. Fresh carb rebuild, gaskets and screw sets. Honda 750 Shadow exhaust pipes.

An incredible 60 horsepower, pumped out by one of the most reliable engines ever built. A transversely-mounted, liquid-cooled V-twin; the same basic engine we use in our CX650 Turbo.
With every one of it's 674cc's pounding out ultra-high torque, the CX Custom feels as if it could pull heavy freight, no matter where you are in the powerband.

The engine design combines a 10.0:1 compression ratio and 9,650 rpm redline with overhead valves and a camshaft nestled at the base of the V between the cylinders. There are four overhead valves per cylinder, with unique forked rocker arms acting off each pushrod. The engine runs well on 87 octane petrol. It delivers nearly 50 hp (37 kW) at 9,500 rpm with high low-speed torque characteristics

CX650 Custom Variant:
The CX650 Custom was a one year model produced in 1983 for the US market. Its unique cruiser type styling sets it apart from all other CX variants. The frame is completely different, and the styling was marketed to accommodate the American desire for the low stretched look of American cruiser bikes. Its semi chopped fork, tear drop tank, low seat and truncated exhaust gave it a very rakish and appealing look. However, it was very similar in styling and price range to the 750 Shadow and Honda elected to have only one cruiser bike in that class, thus the reason for its short model life.

Aww come on Tim, no harm in posting a cut and pasted, polished classified ad. Saves him time posting around various places by not having to type a lot.

OP, it would be helpful for more information, history, and fill out your profile with location. And why the sale?
