Hello everyone,



This is my first post here on this forum and I must say I am very impressed with the unity everyone has on here!



i have just bought a 1980 CX500C and I am stripping it down for a cafe build, however I have a question about what to do with the ugly, ugly, ugly brake light/ plate holder. I am gonna keep the rear fender but maybe cut a little off of the rear and find a mound for something new. Does anyone have any input or knowledge of past projects? Photo's?



Thanks to everyone in advance!



Sorry if this is in the wrong category, please move if needed....

It's an open book. Since it's just a light any research on any bike will do.

Maybe even think LED lights.

Yes I have been lurking and researching this bike before I bought mine. See what common problems were and what kind of aftermarket following this bike had (not much
).



I bought this bike just this sunday and I have already stripped the ugly trunk/ passenger back rest and the crash bars off the bike. I want to get my front forks painted next and figure out the tail light situation.

You say trunk and backrest?

There is a guy right now in the selling section looking for a luggage rack for a custom.

I replaced my brake light with one of the turn signals and just put a red cover on it instead of the amber one. I then mounted it on the side of the bike. But then again I have a custom solo seat and nothing behind it.



But just a thought




I'll see if i can wrangle up some photos, but I don't have my bike out at university with me.
