Hi guys putting my 1983 cx500 project together and need a few parts.

I'm rebuilding my engine so need:

a camshaft
a cooling fan
pressure sender unit


other parts I need are:

side panels (to cover battery area)
front brake lever,pot etc.
could do with the proper right hand side switch gear.
Headlight and bracket (may use an aftermarket as building a cafe racer)


may need a proper loom aswell as mine has been "modified"

Aftermarket parts I'm also looking for are cafe racer style headlight headlight brackets and exhaust end cans/mufflers. Also a decent set of shocks and a speedo if anybody had any

thanks for reading, hope someone can help

Unfortunately I think the postage will be far too much :/

Please take a picture of Your bike.
Or say:

What CX500 1983 it is.

CX-Standard european version
CX-Custom or
CX500E

I think I will have some parts for the CX500 Standard.
To send paquets from Germany to England will be around 17 or 22 Euro.

I have a cam shaft and cooling fan(used so it will have cracks but these are normal)

For the pressure sending unit, do you mean from the thermostat housing? (I have a few with their housing.)

Items are from a 1978 std or a 1979 custom.

Portland, OR. PM if interested.

What is the switch gear? I will probably have one.

How much would postage be on camshaft and fan?

I have thermostat now, but still need a right hand side switch gear

I've got a spare camshaft (and rear hub, I think), fan, radiator and (red) sidepanels that might have come from an CX500E. Got the front brake setup, wiring (with TI ignition and regulator) and (rectangular) headlight as well, but I can't tell you anything about whether any of the stuff actually works. Just picked it up last wednesday together with my E and the stuff's just sitting in a box.

If you want I could shoot some pics of the parts I have and send them to you to look at.

I can ship a camshaft alone for about $25. The fan will add a few onto that. I am looking at $20 for the cam and the fan will be just shipping since I don't much like to value factory CX fans.

The cam has some surface rust. the tips of the lobes show minor wear as well. I may well take some pictures tomorrow.

Hope everything finds its way to ya!
