    I've got an '83 GL650I and have been toying with the idea of doing a cafe racer build. Mechanically, the bike has been bulletproof and is my "daily" driver.

    Hey guys, started this CX build just about a year ago & thought I would start posting my progress on here. I've always wanted to build a motorcycle & became obsessed with the CX after learning about its unique engine layout. The first CX (1980) was given to me by a buddy for helping him move...

The idea behind starting a CX500 project bike only came to be recently after finding one for a reasonable price on Facebook marketplace.
