My CX500 RAT

Thought I'd post some before and after pics of my RAT CX. This is the first bike I've ever owned. Flat black paint job, new handlebars and mirrors, shortened the rear fender, remounted and rewired the rear lights, sportster seat, vinyl cover for under the seat, removed the original exhaust and put straight pipes and header wrap.

I don't know. I must be getting old as I like my GL500 just the way the folk at Honda made it. All of the rats, bobbers, and choppers look as uncomfortable as hell. They would not work with my old bones as I like to travel mile after mile down old back roads just to see what is going on in the rest of the country. If they are what "floats your boat" - go for it.

At my age I don't think I have the years to allow a lot of evolving. I will just hang onto the GL500 and when I am gone, pass it on to my son and he can do whatever he wants with it. LOLOL
