Photos of 1980 CX500

I picked this up a month ago from a friend who had it standing for 5+ years. I've managed to un-seize the engine this week with great delight and to huge relief after persevering for 2 weeks with it.

Living in the Rhondda just outside Cardiff. Working on the bike in between occupying a 1yr and 3yr toddler. My first bike 15 or so years ago was a 1980 cx500 so I couldn't say no to this project despite my wives many objections to it

Welcome! It has been interesting reading your posts about freeing up the engine.
Love the CX in the back of the Volvo, never mind getting a van, the Volvo will do! Brilliant.
How the heck did you get it in?
Best of luck!

CXThomas the first CX I ever bought went into the back of a Vauxhall Corsa. I remember having to take the handle bars off and a few other bits to get it in. That's why I knew it would for in the Volvo :) the only thing removed this time was the front wheel.
