Picked up an '82 CM250C for $300 this weekend! Started the process of tearing everything down for inspection/cleaning/replacement.

It came with a Honda gas tank that is definitely not for this bike. The tank mounts are in the wrong place and the tank is just simply too large.

On another note - does anywhere know where I can source the original tank for this bike?

Except for the gas cap latch, it really looks like a CB650C tank... but I can't find a year with that cap latch, and the striping is different than the CB900C

That's because the spine of the CX frame is huge.The coils are also mounted on the frame so the tunnel is wide to accommodate.

Thanks Rscottp - that's the one! I spent some time looking at CB/CL tanks, but I didn't even think to check the CX500
