Honda CX500 Turbo motorcycle, 1982. Frame no. PC03-2000006, engine no. PC03E-2000007. ( Less turbocharger and manifold, computer, electric fuel pump retained by Honda for sectioning). NOTE: see Screen 2. Honda was founded in 1946 by Soichiro Honda with the aim to produce cheap transportation for the Japanese after the devastation of the Second World War. It is now one of the largest motorcycle manufacturers in the world. This CX500 Turbo is the result of a Honda research programme developing the turbocharger to obtain the performance of a larger engine with the fuel economy of a smaller engine. The CX500 is the first motorcycle to combine a turbocharger with computer controlled, fuel injection and ignition systems.
