Anyone know of a better prospect than this.
« Started on: 27-Apr-18, 14:36 »
One of the guys in our riding group has had the engine in his CX B seize and another motor seems the best option.

When you see stuff like this (and the price), it's notencouraging

Does anyone know of a motor up for sale?

I saw that yesterday and informed the seller it was a CX500 engine as it was listed as a CB650 motor for whatever reason.

 At $650 as an unknown quantity it's a tad overpriced.

 It's an 82 TI motor by the way.

It's not that far from me if you would like me to take a look.

Yikes. That makes the motors I have sold over the years look like bargains.

tks but i wouldn't even consider it -----corrosion, headers off so ingress of dirt, moisture  etc

These sellers are very annoying --

2 Cx wheels out at Narromine for $500

A heap of a wreck on Gtree for $1750

Higher prices are becoming the norm.

 The CX might be a late bloomer but check out the prices of some of the bits for the more popular collectable models.

 One day they'll even be worth more than a Z50 or ST70. :)
