Sorry if the terminology is incorrect, but, just bought my first motorcycle yesterday, a '78 Honda CX500 barn find... had a few 'minor' issues to get started... one of which is that the air box is missing those short rubber tubes that connect to the carbs. I think they call them boots.

Looking to fire the bike up, maybe drive a bit before the snow comes, at which point I dismantle and rebuild a cafe racer. I Just want to make sure it runs properly before I take it apart to know if the engine is any good and such.

Hoping someone might have them laying around after doing an air-pod upgrade or something... downside though is I'm in Canada but, if very cheap/free I can pay for shipping, or better, if somewhat local I'll go get them.

Please PM me. Thanks.
