1979 Honda CX500, 496cc. Registration number CMK 729V. Frame number CX500 2037237. Engine number CX500E 2037381.
The CX series feature a crankshaft configuration aligned longitudinally with the axis of bike, similar to the Moto Guzzi layout. Unlike a "boxer" flat-twin, the cylinders protrude at an angle above the horizontal. The included angle of the CX is 80°, and the heads are twisted 22° so that the inlet tracts do not interfere with the rider's legs.
CMK has been unused for many years and will need recommissioning, it has been recently run on a slave fuel line.
Sold with the V5C.
