    1979 Honda CX500 - $700(Ladson/Summerville)
    [​IMG]

    I am selling my 1979 Honda CX500 motorcycle. It has shaft drive, mag-type wheels, radiator-cooling, and electric start (rare options for 1979 500cc motorcycles). It is black with engine crash bars, a Vetter Windjammer fairing windshield, a sissy bar, luggage rack. It has been converted to use car-size oil filters for better oil circulation in the engine. The "power brain box" that is mounted under the seat (that are infamous for failing on this model) has been replaced with a brand new modern one. It has been VERY reliable, but I no longer need it since I bought a Harley. Is registered/insured and can be test-driven (after I see your motorcycle driver's license). Runs Great! Clean title!

    There was always that attraction to any motorcycle that said turbo. :muutt
    I have shied away from older motorcycles especially the rare and odd ones because of the availability of replacement parts. I got rid of my CB650SC Nighthawk after trying to locate the clutch cover gasket. Took me two months to find and have it shipped from California. Sold the bike 6 months later. My 83'
    Ascot is getting close to being that way. Had to have a machine shop Custom make dowel pins for The Rocker cover last year.

    Even at my age and with all of my riding experience, I won't own a 1000cc bike or high output bike, again. I'll kill myself. However, I will ride someone else because I'll keep the mental note of "It's not yours jackass! Ride like you have good sense." :lol3

    I've been riding my SCR950 lately, and on the country backroads when I'm behind a line of cars, I'll pass one or two and think to myself: "If I was on my V65, I'd have passed this entire line of cars and be doing better than a buck twenty in the same time it takes me to pass one car on this scrambler"

    Of course, the scrambler is a whole hell of a blast to ride in a completely different way... but yeah I tend to ride bikes like I stole them. And the SCR is a lot of fun to ride at its limits, without those limits being stupid speeds. V65 routinely sees 130mph under my butt... my luck has been holding steady, but I think perhaps I push it too far sometimes...

    One of the reasons i am still around today is because of my conservative approach to everything...I am not a balls to the wall type..and it takes me years of experience before I might even try something agressive..emphasis on "might"..
    My current bike is a Suzuki Bandit 1250..it wont kill me like the Hurricane would have but this bike has alot of gumption more than enough for this old fart...the thing about it is ..all the power /torque is down low in the powerband so i dont need to rev it up to 10000 rpms to make it work...its prolly the most incredible machine I have owned in 40+ yrs of riding...

    My motorcycle philosophy changed after riding a Ural for a number of (trouble free) years. It forced me to slow down and enjoy the ride, on a Ural the speed limit is a somewhat elusive goal. I’ve moved on to another sidecar rig but took to heart once again the reason motorcycling so appealed to me - it’s all about the journey and not the destination.
    Simple is good.
