1982 Honda CX500

When introduced, the Honda CX500 was a novelty. It was the first mass produced motorcycle to feature tubeless wheels along with the CBX. The engine on which the CX 500 was based was originally developed for a small car. The CX engine was highly unconventional, and to this day its design has never been replicated. To keep the engine narrow, it was made into an 80-degree V. 

Liquid cooling was still considered somewhat exotic for motorcycles back in the end of 1977, when the CX was introduced to the press, but helped to control both noise emission as well as engine temperature.

This bike comes fitted with aftermarket exhaust as well as a set of panniers.
