I'm hoping to see about getting my hands on a sissy bar or back rest for my 1980 cx500 custom. Its not chopped up or anything it's all still original. Would be nice to find a actual original back rest or sissy bar or it. Lmk what ya have thanks

I have one from a '81 500 C. I don't know if it will fit your 1980. The seat back does NOT slide forward enough to be used by the rider, it's only for a passenger. In very good condition. $50 plus UPS from MN. Pic is from original CL listing.

That should fit the '80 Custom. I'm not aware of any changes to the rear end in '81.
I just saw this reply. however I did end up finding a complete 80 cx500 that I ended up buying for 100 bucks for a parts bike. was lucky enough that it just happened to have a sissy bar on it.

Now that I've taken this thing off the shelf, I'm thinking I'll bolt it back on, make my naked bike a little more practical.
