I have a 1981 GL500. I've been able to remove the rear seat in the past without any trouble. Recently I tried the usual method, but one of the helmet lock handles seemed to travel much further forward than usual, almost like a spring had broken. Also, no audible "ping" sound like in...
I'm seeing many seat options that I like on Ebay that are 24" long - I want to be able to occasionally give my girlfriend a ride on my bike too though. Has anyone here gotten one of those seats and still been able to comfortably give their s.o. a ride on their bike?
The stock seat is about 29"...
Hello CX- brothers and sisters
Im getting an old beat up CX500 from 78 back on the road and need a new seat. The bikes back-end and side covers are misising so im going for RAT-bike look without the plastick rear light assemply.
There are a lot of CX500C seats out there that would fit...
The seat pan is fiberglass, not plastic, and came with the bike when I bought it. I had the seat custom upholstered locally a few months ago. Selling because I decided to go with a different "brat-style" seat that will allow me to put my girlfriend on the back.
Fiberglass needs some work as...
I took my seat off quite a while back and can't figure out how to put it back on. Do i need the tail light bracket (which i took off...still have, but have to go get it if i need it)? Could someone send a pic of their seat assembly?
Hello CX500 community,
I am very new in this forum. I purchased a CX500 from a neighbor who rather than selling it to someone who does not appreciate vintage machines decided to sell me his baby.
Unfortunately, it was not much of a baby. There was a good chunk of missing parts and a few...
so i recently bought a 79 cx500 custom and the back of the frame is chopped about an inch or two after the shock mounts.i bought the bike like this so i don't have a seat pan. but i was looking at some of the seats on seats direct and i was wondering how they fit and the overall quality. and...
Hi guys, Purchased a 1980 CX500 Custom recently as my first bike and have decided to start a cafe racer build project with my GF's Father. We have done some brainstorming and decided the first steps are to swap out the stock seat in favor of a more lower profile; cafe racer style seat. After...
I want to get a CX, it seems to tick all the boxes of what I want from a bike. It looks like the E or Eurosports model is a much better bike but the seat looks a bit narrow and I can't imagine that it is comfortable for touring. The older standard CX500 seat on the other hand looks perfect...
After lurking on here for a while I finally have a reason to start a new thread.
I decided to make a flat / brat / tracker style seat for my CX500. I could have just bought one from ebay I suppose but I like the challenge of trying something new so thought I'd give making one from scratch a...
Just wondering how many of you out there have installed a 'Texavina' seat on your bikes? I have bought one and it looks great. Now I just have to mount the thing and that involves some hacking and welding.
If any one has attempted it, do you have any tips/build thread?
If you want to refresh the look of your CX - change the seat.
You can order any color, shades of fabric and thread to match the colors of your Honda.
Seat cover can be made of synthetic, natural leather or from a different material eg. alcantara.
It is possible to add extra text or designs...
I have been wanting to change up my seat on my 79 Deluxe without having to modify the frame.
I also wanted to keep the rider seat for my girlfriend but still shape the seat to give it a slightly less aggressive look.
Decided to do the shaping and custom upholster the seat from home.
Swapped out the trunk back to the second seat on my GL500 went to switch back and the right side helmet lock arm flings all the way up when unlocked. There is no tension to the arm to release the lock. Not sure how to fix the issue or get at it. Any advice?
My CX650 Eurosport has a broken tab at the fuel tank and now, I can't secure the front part of the seat properly.
Is there any way to secure or do I have to have it welded?
I was wondering how you guys are dealing with it.
I'm looking for a brat style seat for my 79 CX500 Deluxe. The only person I've been able to find that makes them is located in Vietnam. If anyone knows where to purchase one or have one made that's in the U.S., please let me know. If anyone has one that's already made and wants to sell...

Hello everyone, thanks in advance for the help!
My 1980 CX500 Deluxe's original seat cover has finally split open so its time to get a new seat. I'm thinking this is a perfect opportunity to get a whole new seat instead of just getting a cover because I think the original fat seat is kinda...
Im new here and to the whole world of Cafe Racer.
I just bought a seat from motorcycleseatsdirect.com but it does not fit...

Any good places to buy parts from? (I used Ebay and Aliexpress)
