Honda CX500

Share your opinions on the Honda CX500, 1978 model year. I have read all the internet article about cam tensioners, water pumps. But also have read articles that these were used by couriers and racked up high miles. The one I see for sale is a '78 and is the standred model. not the cruiser. I always thought the standred was a rather unique neat looking bike. If the cam tensioner fix was done on this bike I may give it a look.
I suppose parts are going to be hard to obtain? Anyway looking for opinions on this bike.
