Bought this 1979 CX500 Deluxe brand new in July of '79 after graduating from High School for $2,195. I put a Vetter Windjammer on as the weather in Minnesota turned cool...



It's hard to look like a tough biker when wearing a powder blue down jacket while posing with the bike in your parents back yard..... LOL !

Do you still have it? I've kept all my bikes so far with the exception of my first bike, which i regret not keeping but I was young and needed trade in value.



Peace

Had one just like it right down to the bags. Loved it.

Thanks for the shout outs guys. I figured you would understand....


I wish I still had it, but sold it a few years later to buy a Gold Wing. Did the same Vetter fairing and bags to the GW before you could buy them full dressed from Honda. Now I'm all nostalgic about re-living my youth and getting a CX again, but am very particular. I have my eye on one of Larry's projects....

Ever come home to visit, like maybe May 14 (Twin City Ride)?

Yep. '79 JFK graduate.



I often get back there for work and to see family/friends as I just moved to AZ a little over 3 years ago. I'll be back for sure the weekend of May 7th for my nephews wedding.... might have to extend it. What's the "Twin City Ride" ?
