I believe the VIN plate on the headstock lists the original model configuration. Provided you can see it with the fairing and that the wiring bundles haven't worn off the lettering. The very bottom line usually lists the model number.

It's probably a CX that someone installed a fairing on. If you can post some pics we can tell you what it is. If it looks like the bike in the pic to the left, it's a GL 500 with a Hondaline fairing.

If ya SEE the shocks......it's definatley of the CX variety. If ya DON'T see the shocks, then, it's a GL.
