Classic Bike (UK) - - COURIER PATH -

The CX500Z we rode may still be avail­able for sale at Hunts Mo­tor­cy­cles. One of the last of the first-year Z mod­els, it’s in ex­cep­tion­ally orig­i­nal con­di­tion. Pre­vi­ous owner Tim Cheetham bought the bike as part of a job lot of CX bikes and parts from a de­ceased es­tate. Tim builds Cx500-based cus­tom bikes, but couldn’t bring him­self to chop this ex­cep­tion­ally orig­i­nal ex­am­ple. “It was ini­tially sold to the diplo­matic ser­vice in Ger­many and was brought over here in 1983. It cer­tainly hasn’t done much work,” he says. The bike is up for £3195. Con­tact John Brown on
