This one doesn't have a windshield, but has more stupid crap on the back, like queen seat back or whatever you want to call it.

If its been sitting any length of time it'll probably need a water pump seal, and the funky non automotive coolant.

Its fine if you don't mind wrenching.
good site for more info.
Some people really likes those cx's I'd say if it runs I"d sell it and buy something a little easier to get parts for.
It's not my bike to sell. I guess I should have said I'm more or less going to try and see if it will run, but if it does, I would be looking into changing the appearance. I have no real plans of getting deep into riding like going on biker trips or hang outs or any of that BS, just use this for back and forth to work on nice days and maybe long trips where I won't have to carry anything.
Speed is no concern, and wrenching is always fun. So long as it has a chance of running and isn't going to cost me a lot, I'm going to try and ride it.
