Hey all. I am new to documenting my builds but am going to try to do so with this one. Can we add videos?

On the tool bar below the box you type in click the downward facing arrow beside the three dots. On the drop down menu is the add media button.

This is what I'm starting with. A GL500 and a CX500 bare chassis.

Encountered problem 1, and 2. The engine cradle mounts on front of the GL are shorter than the CX. And the fan was broke.

Tank relocated. CX500 front engine cradle relocated. Thanks to West 60 salvage in Neosho Missouri. He has a ton of these bikes and pieces.

You can also do an electric fan conversion, just do a search and you will find some info on it.
