New to the world of CX500's and new to this forum. Just brought home yesterday a 1978' CX500 with 17,000 miles that hasnt run in years. All original non modified bike that is a little rought and needs to be completely gone thru. Need to see if I can sort out low compression in both cylinders, 60 PSI in left cyl and 90 PSI in the right. Hoping these numbers will come up once I get it running. I have wanted one of these CX500's for years and have been playing with older (90's) Harley's. Just finished a custom 97' Harley Sportster 883 Scrambler build in March this year and decided I needed another project. Originally I wanted to do a custom build with this bike but thinking about restoring it? Need to get it running first and then see how I feel. G.B.
