This review is actually for the 1981 Honda CX500C, I just couldn't figure out how to write a review on a bike not listed. I started riding 1-1/2 years ago on the CX500 that I bought for $600. For its age and 40,000+ miles, it has held up extremely well. I try to take care of it and it has done great for me. I drove round trip on the CX from Raleigh to the outer banks of North Carolina and back in one day - approx 16 hrs riding time this summer w/ dad following on his v-star. The bike didn't hesitate to go the distance. I have a custom seat, National Cycle windscreen, and a K&N air filter and no other add-ons, the rest is stock. I've accidentally over-revved the engine well beyond redline twice now, but still it runs like a train. I haven't ridden a lot of other bikes, but I seriously doubt many can work so reliably as the Honda has. It's no powerhouse, but it gets around no problem. Although I will be upgrading to a Bandit 600s in the near future I'll never forget or regret owning a CX500C.

My dad bought me my 79' CX 500 Custom from a friend of ours for $600 and its been well worth the money! It runs great even though it has near 80,000 kms on it! It has Jardine exhaust and case guards that kind of spruce things up a bit. It sounds beefier than a 750. Everything works great, even after all this time. When people see it, they can't believe its a 1979, or that it only has 500cc's, thanks to that huge transmission that makes the engine look bigger than it really is. A great design for 1979, a real great beginners bike too! Its well worth your money.

This model was my first motorcycle and I have owned 2 different ones over a total of 4 years now. Great running bike with a bulletproof engine and decent handling for being so old.
