Parts availability
« Started on: 13-Jun-21, 02:20 »
Hi there,  new member here with the usual noobie questions!
I found a Cx500 Turbo today and am thinking really hard about buying it as I've been looking on and off for one for years to go with my other unusual bike- Suzuki RE5.

The bike is very rough and missing so many bits,  but it's mechanically 95% there and cheap enough. Such a shame the bits are missing,  and no idea where they've gone,  this is how the current owner inherited the bike.

So my question is- are the following parts available and any ideas of cost?

Fairing and side panels
Headlight,  indicators
Dash
Tank
Seat
Grab rail
Rear guard with brake light and indicators
Rhs exhaust
Rhs pillion peg


That's just from a quick look.  Obviously the big ticket item is the fairing I guess? Are the Tank,  seat and side covers the same as the sports models?

It seems like a real shame to let the bike get stripped for spares and I do love a good challenge,  but not worth doing if I can't get hold of the parts.

Cheers Andy in Perth WA

All those parts come up on ebay from time to time
Fairing, rare however a replica was made and modified to suit Euro headlight as to whether it will suit the dash I don't know, sold as Streamliner still available on Ebay without mountings.  Will have a problem with Exhaust pipes. Screens availble from "Screens for bikes" Melbourne.
Side panels Same as Euro except for right side has a lock
Headlight, often seen on ebay 
indicators, Replicas on ebay
Dash, not often seen
Tank, a bit rare but do turn up similar to Euro tank but widened , I suspect to reduce reflected engine noise and has a different fuel tap and mounts are not the same as Euro, some years ago I got a new tank still in its box from South Africa - there is also a heat shield.  The fuel level float is not the same as Euro.  Caps that fit are available on Ebay. 
Seat, same as Euro
Grab rail,  same as Euro
Rear guard with brake light, same as Euro
Rear Indicators, same as Euro - these do turn up on ebay
Rhs exhaust,  replicas made. same shape as Euro don't know about internals plus  there is a"Turbo" name plate
Rhs pillion peg, similar to Euro but Euro is steel and not as good looking
Before you start you need to get a parts manual that can be found on the Internet or on this forum.

The Honda part number system contains valuable information
For example the seat part number is 77200-MC5-000
Translated it gives the following information
77200 - (part code) tells us that this part is a seat, could be a seat for any model including cars.
MC5 -    (Classification Code) tells us that this seat was first used on CX500 Euro, could have been used on many other models as well but always the same identical part.
000 -     (Makers code) tells us that this part was made by Honda themselves. Sometimes has a colour code included.

There is a Topic here showing Classification Codes
https://australiancx.asn.au/forum/index.php?topic=8189.msg77503#msg77503

All up not a hopeless task but will take some time, many members here have spares and are willing to sell.  Don't hesitate to ask for help.
 
Good luck keep up the good work. Post some photos so we can see how you are progressing.

Thanks very much "Young" Les, that's an awesome reply.  Gives me hope that I can actually do this project.  It may take quite some time but that's ok- parts collection will be the first phase.

Hi Andy, I have a parts bike that has everything you need, EXCEPT the fairing. But I also know where there is one you could get cheap enough with my help.
I guess the question is if you want to invest in spares that you don't need for your resto - and I don't want to sell bits of my complete parts bike.... I suspect that you might end up paying more for the parts you want than I want for the whole bike....
Get in touch by PM or email if you might be interested. I'm in Vic and and it would take a bit of "interesting' logisitics to get it to you.... but we have ways, as they say....

Hi Joe, thanks very much for the reply.  I've been trying to pm you but it keeps on saying I'm not answering the verification questions correctly (which I am). Maybe I need more of a post count before I can pm? Who knows.
Yes,  I agree on what you say and it's an amazing offer- I'd love some more details on your bike.  Would you mind sending me a pm and I'll see if I can reply to that? Or even a phone number so we can talk- it might sort cut the process a fair bit! Cheers Andy

@Spicerack  I've just noticed that error in the system logs and I'll investigate it and try to fix it today.

In the meantime, and as the error is specific to mobile version of the forum theme, you could click on the 'Desktop View' button at the bottom of the screen to use the desktop version of the forum theme.


Edit: @Spicerack I think I've fixed the issue you were having with sending PMs while using the mobile theme.
