I recently installed two new Shinko tires on the "new to me" 1980 CX500 Deluxe, as well as the nearly new Sportster mufflers. Did a few local rides to check it out, runs awsome, looks and sounds good. Relocated the rear signals back a few inches (fully restorable to original) to accommodate my soft bags positioning to better carry the odds and ends more conveniently, they pop off easily. Put insurance on it today and made a DMV appointment for tomorrow to transfer a plate from another bike. It will be my local bike to compliment the GL650I. I retired 6 months ago and turned 70 last week, life is good! Total bike cost = 2 tires and a new battery, as the bike was given to me.
