    I inherited a very low mile 79 CX500 Deluxe, finally found a tank for it and I am now ready to start dreaming up my bike. I was initially attracted to the cafe bike but now I am leaning towards the scrambler look. I could use some help with determining the right parts, as I am a rookie in the...

    Need some help with scrambler planning I picked up my 1979 CX500 about 4 months ago. She's on the road, she's all stock.... and I want to start a scrambler-style build. I'm using the cx500 as my daily rider right now, so I want to get everything planned out beforehand to minimize the time...
