Thanks CXPHREAK. I build what I like. Not everyone's style or taste for sure. But it makes me happy. Not looking to please anyone or piss anyone off. Just sharing progress so some friends can keep track. For a full on custom project its going pretty fast. Started around Thanksgiving.

I am totally in love with this exhaust. Oh and the bike officially has a name:
NXSCX ( in excess CX )
I am having custom badges made to replace the engine badges to reflect the name.

One more quick comment on the exhaust... Back in the day on the '79 CX500 I had in the UK, I fitted an aftermarket 2 into 1 Piper exhaust system (they were a poor mans competitor to Dunstall in the UK, the British equivalent to Yoshimura or Vance & Hines. All matt black)... It looked and sounded so cool.

It totally changed the "genteel" burble of the original Honda exhaust mufflers. Look forward to hearing this too :cool:

Thanks adriancw. I am too. Often times the poor mans version of something is better than the rich version.

The laced wheels look sharp... Looks like they costs pretty penny!!

Cheers, Adrian

Nice work on the exhaust, stand & shifter! The wheels are quite eye catching too.
