The prices of these bikes and their parts are already several times more than they were a year ago! They are getting the attention from the world that they deserved all along.

Nice! I especially like the retro fuel tank treatment. The rubber knee pads should be easy but are repros of the badges available?

Those early Honda badges can get really pricy.

I don't know what they have the carbs connected to, but it ain't the petcock.

Just looked closely at that pic - yeah, the petcock is just sitting there with nothing attached.



I'm also kind of disappointed (if I can use that word) that they took off the engine guards. Both for protection of the engine (if these were meant to be ridden - maybe not: that would explain the lack of functional petcock) and aesthetics, I really like the look of the engine guards. These bikes look a little too lean for a cx500.



Beautiful nonetheless.

I like the seat, the headlight guard, and the pipes.

Not to fond of the rest. Nice clean work though.
