So I am new to bikes and I really like the old bike look. Originally I was looking at the cb's but most where already restored or changed into a cafe racer. So anyway looking over craigslist I finally founds a cx500 I really like the looks of it. It seems to have a decent history of reliability and user enjoyment. My plan it so make it into a cafe type bike, though how far I take it I haven't decided being that priorit one will be to get it running and then tearing it down to get the rust off. So here are some quick pics of the bike.
