Hello everyone,

I am new to this forum, and I have never owned a Honda CX500 but I am looking at two for sale that I want to buy. I need all your expertise and advice about these motorcycles. First, the pair are being sold together and are complete motorcycles for $450.00. They definately need restoration, but that is what I am looking for anyways. They are both 1982 models, one is a Silver wing with the faring and saddlebags and everything, and the other is a Custom. The engines are clean and not corroded or anything. The engines look great on the outside, however I absolutely must have one that runs good right now. The seller says he has never had either one running but they turn over and he says the guy he bought them from said they ran. Anyways, are these engines (in general) pretty good? What are the chances of the engines starting after a carburator cleaning? I like the price for the both of them, but as I said, I need at least one of them to run well. If they are turning over, is that is good sign? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You.

delano did you happen to see them listed on craigslist?? and if so then they guy upped the price at one point they were here in az 20 minutes away from me the guy that owned them sold them for 20 bucks to a guy that lived in utah and that person sold them to a guy in vegas i saw these to bikes up close and i was told i was a day late other wise i would own them right now and for what its worth the both ran!! and the guy that is selling them in vegas was at first selling them for 150 bucks or a Cleveland motor than had good compression so i would jump on it

(when they were in az they were right behind my mother in laws house in chloride az)
