1979 CX500 Custom
My first street bike when I was 15 years old was a 1979 CX500 Custom. I recently located one, completely original, but facing years of neglect. It didn’t matter though…As soon as I sat on it…I knew I had to own it. The paint was full of scratches and swirls….the aluminum was all pitted and oxidized…. the chrome full of surface rust. The mufflers were totally rusted out and the baffles had been removed. I’ve already begun the process of bringing this bike back to its former glory, but lots of work ahead.
