Bought a 2007 C50, white & silver, a month ago. Getting use to the cruiser style
of riding. I've decided to keep the bike as the new back rest helps my poor tired old body cope with the bike seating position.

I love the FI and shaft drive, less maintenance. And I like the low and midrange torque, it's perfect for the mountain roads around here!

Anything is great after getting off my 30 year old Honda Silverwing
It was also a deal too good to pass up! For once I was in the right place at the right time with money in my pocket

Welcome from the Pacific NorthWest.

I had a similar Motorcycle when I bought my Red and Black C50 new in 2007. But I kept the Honda SilverWing as it was refurbished and painted with a great gel coat Burgundy with metallic flakes. My 1982 500 cc SilverWing (with shaft drive and electronic ignition) Still runs great although on the first start is always cold blooded. I still occasionally ride the SilverWing to keep it going good. My brother from back East used it when we took a little ride when he visited last summer.
I have a Grasshopper backrest for the driver on my 2007 C50 with a Mustang Custom Seat and it too makes maintaining a good riding posture quite comfortable.
