Default 1981 Cx500 Custom $1200 OBO Trades welcome

I got this bike on a trade and I'm not sure if I want it anymore. I've decided it's too big for what I want. I want a bike that will get me the maximum MPG's. So if I have to sacrifice comfort and power for MPG's I will. I'm into trading for a nice 250 rebel, virago, gz250, ninja, even a kawasaki eliminator 125. Other trades considered (no paintball, videogame, car stereo please)

I would love to take this bike off your hands, but I think you have the wrong idea about fuel economy. There comes a point when you cant use any less energy to move an object thru the air at 40-50 mph no matter how small the engine is.

I know from looking on forums you can get 45-55 MPG with the cx and can get around 60-75 with a 250 rebel or virago, from what i've read.

scooter, yes the obama sticker is included
