I am considering parting this GL500 out, or picking up a rough CX and having this for backup parts (because ordering parts from ebay get VERY expensive.)

I believe the intake manifolds are different
Carbs are %100 the same?
Does a CX chrome fender fit on a GL?
suspension is different
handlebar switches are different
front rim is the same
rear is 16'' on GL
different ignitions, tdi on GL vs cdi on CX
air box is the same?
exhaust and H box is the same

FWIW...I once queried if a 82 euro would be a good spares bike for a std Cdi Cx....the answer was no....apart from engine bits...are you asking bout early std Cxs or the Deluxe?
