cx500 honda most likely. the 650 was much more rare, being a one year only engine in the USA. a bit of a turd they were known to suck crankcase cover gaskets. its mounted sideways from the factory position. a liquid cooled pushrod engine, it was also the early basis for honda's flat track effort against the XR750s.

Please send a self addressed stamped envelope to Chopper Dave, he'll then give it to me this weekend at the Stockton Mile and I'll try to remember to mail it back to you.. Hows that for a prize? Thanks to everyone who helped out in the adventure.
