Honda’s Throwback: 1978 Honda CX500

In the late 1970s, Honda decided to return to its roots and produce a reliable motorcycle aimed at the get-to-work crowd. Enter the 1978 Honda CX500.

In 1979, Honda offered the CX in three versions. There was the standard CX500 (pretty much the same as the 1978 version), the Custom (peanut tank, hi-rise bars) and the Deluxe.
