I took a few pictures of the bike outside. Sorry if i'm throwing the thing at you guys i'm just a new owner that wants to share the excitement I have
about building it mostly myself. Thanks for looking.

Tried to get a good shot of my rattle can paint job but you can't really make out the metallic.

Really nice build. I like the simple very clean lines, you got them to flow nicely.

Well, , , now that I see it outside, I think it looks like crap.




Seriously though, great work on this thing! I could see the metal flake better in pic #1. You should be proud of this job, and I for one don't mind seeing more pics. The fun part will be when you Google Honda CX500 and start seeing YOUR bike pop up!

HA! thanks. These are probably not the last of the pics i'll post either. I'm so psyched about it I feel like a little kid.



I can't tell you how many times i've googled cx500. That would be pretty sweet to see my bike in the mix.

Looks sweet dude I like it love the seat design
thanks a lot. I got the idea for the seat from a picture I saw in one of the chopper mags. It's not identical but the same basic concept. I know it don't look like it but it's actually comfortable too.

Interesting project, nice work!



Are you planning on leaving the seat, engine and final drive as is, or painting them a flat black too?

Looks good, I like the handlebars especially.  The only thing I'd suggest is figuring out some kind of protection for your radiator, punching a rock through it will ruin your ride pretty quick.  I think it might be Reg (UK Reg) that has a pretty slick looking mesh grill over his.

I think he did it with good ol' spray paint. It says something in the close-up of the tank about a rattle can paint job.
