Honda CX500 cafe racer ’84
This Honda CX500 was in need of a full restoration. It was at the end of it’s lifecycle. The bike was stripped completely and a plan was forged to give it a new lease of live. The objective was to improve ride quality of the overall bike and have a reliable daily driver. The CX500 frame was left almost entirely original. several tabs and mounts where removed to give the frame a cleaner look. It is powdercoated high gloss black.
The original fork was replaced with a Black anodized CBR600RR fork. Original Honda costar wheels were fitted to the CBR fork. The front hub is CNC’ed to mount the wheel and the brakes in the front fork. All original electronics were replaced with new wireloom new brain box was fitted. Also motogadget M-lock was installed and Motogadget Tiny speedo .
The rear fairing is made entirely from aluminum. The original CX tank was used for a sleek look and the rear fairing was matched to that style.
