I bought my bike in March, and the original owner said that he'd snail mail me the owner's manual "when he finds it". I don't think it's gonna happen.



I know that the manual is available as a digital image (downloaded everything I could find), but I'd really like to have a physical copy of the thing.



Does anyone know of a reliable/inexpensive/good source for manuals for my 1980 CX 500 Deluxe? Do I get a Clymer, or I've seen in previous posts that there is a Haynes one as well.



I'm in Canada, if that makes a difference.

I have been printing mine one section at a time at work. I have them in small three ring folders and I was just looking for a picture of something, digging through 8 unlabeled folders, and I realized these need to be in order in one binder.

Ebay I guess. I don't have an owners handbook for the CX but have picked up the factory workshop manual, Honda dealers revue booklet and the 500 and 500/650 Haynes manuals on Ebay. Also manuals [Honda, Clymer and Haynes as well as the owners manual] for my CB 450s.



It seems to me with ebay if you look long enough everything turns up eventually.
