I saw this on Craigslist this morning. Am I crazy to want a 40 year old motorcycle?

If I could have lived my youth over I would have purchased something like this.

Honda Silverwing GL500 - motorcycles/scooters - by owner - vehicle... (craigslist.org)
The first question has got to be, why do you want it? The Silverwing GL 500 was a sweet bike in the day. Lots of tech for back in the 80s featuring an engine design that was a bit of a curiosity (think Moto Guzzi but without the need for that air cooling design) nevertheless all of its pieces came together to work very well.. Keep us posted.

I had a CB500X some years back. Your description of the bike is spot on from my personal experience. Typical Honda well made and engineered. Got to lift your leg a bit to saddle up. Sweet handling and nice air behind the windscreen/faring.
