    I bought it on ebay [I was drinking] from the guy who traded for it with the guy who bought it at Blue Moon. Blue Moon had done several mods when they had the bike and it is wicked fast. My son lives in the NC mountains and I keep it at his house; that bike was made for curves. On my way back from buying it, I rarely came below 100. It is a real runner.

    Nice score glam. Those cx E models are very rare here, As is the TDR, though I have. Ridden one of those off road. I loved it.

    Highly recommend the trailer to anyone looking for a trailer they can store easily. It can hold two fully dressed big bikes, maybe three if your lucky, and folds to stand up against a wall in the garage. It's a Kendon http://www.kendonusa.com/trailer_dual.html

    Picked this up for $200 (3 for $500 actually with $100 gas).

    Added a front brake cable, a throttle cable, a couple of air filters and home made air hoses from the filters to the carbs.

    She is licensed and inspected and ready to ride. Probably $350 in it.

    It will be a good addition to the family:

    ^^ nice! I love package deals. One day I went to pick up a Kawi F8 from a guy I've bought multiple bikes from, and ended up bringing home 5 bikes :eek1

    Shit happens when you catch the bug!

    Bought this "can't get it to start" 1985 59K K100RT off of CL for a grand a few weeks ago. In the process of stripping it down to the motor and rebuilding it with better front and rear suspension with a paralever rear end over the next month or two.

    Many european Honda's had them in the 80s. I guess, they never came to the US.
