  1. CX teardown how to clean parts individually

    Technical Help Forum
    Hi, I hope I'm posting this in the right forum, I'm new to this. Here's the context: I'm an engineering student and I got bored of theoretical classes so I decided to get my hands dirty.

  2. Cleaning Motor Oxidation -78 CX500

    Technical Help Forum
    Well, I knew I had poor paint on the engine block after buying a bike from Delaware on an island off the coast and it arrive. I didn't realize that the PO or PPO had stripped the paint and it was various degrees of oxidation. I broke my shoulder not very long after buying the bike and then I...
  3. Strange Radiator Bubbles

    Technical Help Forum
    Hey everyone, I found a radiator at a garage sale a couple of days back, it looked in decent condition and at the cost of a fiver I thought I may as well. It has certainly been repainted in what I assume is a VHT paint as it is matte black. I have however notices some small beading around it...

  6. Trying to decide on a new color for my '81 GL500...any recommendations?

    CX Customization and Mods Forum
    Getting my bike painted this month and I've been trying to decide on a color. Originally I was going to go with matte black, but I've been thinking it might be nice to stick to the dark brown but a bit more modern and updated. This is the only image I could find that conveys what I had in mind...
  7. To promote butthurt or not? THAT is the question...

    Garage Wall
    So, I recently picked up this 1979 CX500. I loathe the plastic front housing. The handlebars have too much of a pullback (With my long arms, I feel like I am parasailing at speed..) The paint looks nicer than it is. The master cylinder dripped on the paint on the non-photographed side. Runs...

    When it comes to painting motorcycles, how much paint does it take? For the two tone bikes we have. will 1/2 pint do or do I need 1 pint of each color? Or perhaps 2 pints? Looking for recommendations out there from someone who has done a paint job. I do not really want to end up with...
