Description Honda CX500 EC 1983 Black - Barn find restoration project - runs - V5 present

I bought this bike quite recently off of someone doing a house clearance who said it had been dug out of a barn having been left untouched for 10 years, unfortunately I don't have the time or know how to fix it so I am now selling it. During the brief time I spent working on it I managed to get it running and it sounded like it was going reasonably well and the gears all engaged which is a big plus point the dashboard also lit up with the neutral light etc. working and the rear lights also appeared to be working. Unfortunately it does not have a key (lost by the previous owner) so it had to be hot wired to start it although keys are reasonably easy and inexpensive to have cut. (The funnel on one side was so that fuel could be injected directly to the carburettor to see if it ran.) The tank is in need of a bit of tlc hence the reason the seat is not fitting completely snuggly on it but I doubt that this would be much work for someone who knew what they were doing. It is also missing its battery which would need replacing. The wiring on the front connected to lights was also fiddled with by the previous owner ad you can see in the pictures and so I am including all the indicators etc that he removed and this too I doubt would be much of a job for someone who knew what they were doing. The brakes also need a look at. Cosmetically it is in pretty good condition considering its age I'm not sure that one of the side panels is the correct one for this model although I believe these are relatively inexpensive to replace. Other than that it is a great bike with virtually all of its original parts and a real head turner; it will obviously need a bit of tlc but it is a good project for anyone looking to take one on. It comes with its V5 which I will have sent off to the DVLA on the purchase of the bike.

I am based just south of Basingstoke, if you have any questions please feel free to contact Benedict on 07769704381 although I have tried to be as honest as I can. If you would like to make an offer please also don't hesitate to contact me with one as anything will be considered.
