    For sale is a 1983 Honda GL650 with a clear title. It wouldn't really be fair to list this as not a project, even though you could ride it home as long as you lived within about 25 miles. I just rode the bike here from Maryland about 6 weeks ago and it was absolutely flawless until I arrived...

    My name is George and I'm the proud owner of a 1983 Honda CX 650C! I bought the bike from a co-worker who said it needed new tires, refilling the master cylinder and a good carb cleaning. Well, after new tires, carbs being "cleaned" (I can't verify how much they did but the bike ran after they...

    I've been wanting to do a Cafe project for a while and finally decided on a CX500 after discovering a barn find, a 1981 CX500B (last of the twin shock models) . She's a bit rough cosmetically but the frame is solid with no rust and the engine runs as sweet as a nut. Low mileage at 16,000 -...
