Hi guys and girls,

OK, so i'll try and keep this as short as possible. mid-2015 I bought a 2nd hand working '81 Honda CX500 on Gumtree and got to work turning it into the cafe racer of my dreams. The bike ran fine but needed a 'triple bypass' as it had done about 90k miles. I got to work and also got to buying all the parts I would need to re-assemble the bike.

My plan for the CX500 was as follows:
  • CX500 engine rebuild (including trip bypass as mentioned above)
  • Turn bike in bopper or sleek cafe racer.
  • CBR600RR front-end mod with upside-down suspension, disk brakes and low-slung handlebars.
  • Ducatti Fan-mod
  • Battery mod, storing small battery low-slung under-bike
  • Basically tear out the CX500 known bad-electrics and replace it with a small Ignitech unit
  • New carbs, I opted for race-tuned Mikuni carbs from Murray and his custom kit that comes with it.
  • A raft of other stuff as listed in the parts list below :)

I basically took the bike to pieces (carefully), organised it and then started to figure out how to rebuild it from the ground up (shop manuals, the works). The bike then (and now) is almoste entirely disassembled (see photos in google gallery below)

The CG125
Around the same time, a friend ended up dumping his (also disassembled **rolls eyes**) Honda CG125, a bike that was non-running when he bought it in my garage and essentally donating it to me.

2016, stuff goes on pause
2016 was a bad year, and several heavy family and personal issues hit me at the same time so the project was completely paused as I dealt with everything that was happening around me. Cut to now anddddd.. i'm moving to another country. Denmark to be specific. I would love to take the projects with me, but as I'm starting a new job and shifting my family over I know it will end up in storage for another year or two until I get settled (something that will cost too much in Copenhagen)

Long-story-long I am essentially clearing out my garage of everything listed below, and would ideally like someone that will take everything in one go. Essentially what you have here is the kit of parts for a great CX500, where all you really need to add is a couple of small things (a seat for example). The CG125 isn't worth much so i will essentially throw that in for free to anyone that wants to take the whole thing.

You can see photos of everything in the google gallery below:

If you have questions please drop them in a comment below, if you have SERIOUS offers please send them to me in a PM. As mentioned ideally I want to sell the lot in one go, but I will listen to fair offers for the parts as well.
