Figured its about time I introduced myself. Over the summer I saw a cx500 bobber that caught my attention. After doing some research I decided to try to build my own and go with a BBCR bobber kit. I was striking out locating a decent deluxe to start my build. Most CL adds were gone within 5 days. After a while I decided to try an ad that was 45 days old. The bike was a 4hr drive from NH to VT. After speaking with the owner I decided to hop in the truck. The bike hadn't run in 5 years but appeared to be an honest complete bike with 24k on the odometer . Owner gave me hard bags,trunk and a spare seat with it. Loaded it up and got home at 1am. I really didn't plan on riding it much before tearing it apart but I figure it was better to know what I was starting with. After putting a new battery and gas in the old girl she fired right up. Couldn't believe how fun these little 500's are to tear up the curves with. well she ran great without and tuneup and passed inspection a few days later. I've had a lot of bikes over the years but I got to say these little 500's are a joy to ride. managed to put 1000 miles on her! Well its getting cold here and its time to tear her apart. Plans include BBCR kit, 2 into 2 pipes, dan moto 180 cockpit, murry's carbs.
