Mrs. SLiM's 1979 CX500 custom purchased as a $200 non-running pile of junk.

Unknown number of hours, replacement parts and dollars later. She love's it :loveeyes:

"The Thing" - 1980 CX500 Custom purchased as a $100 non-running rusty wreck, almost nothing but the titled frame was salvaged. It's called "The Thing" a FrankenBike because it's assembled from parts from 3 other non running bikes.

1983 GL650I, it Looked real nice on the outside :mad:

As it is now. Kinda looks the same except that it's running :drinks_smilie: , still needs some cosmetic work.

They look good, but be real careful! When there is more than one they seem to reproduce until they fill the garage!!!

So hard to concentrate on doing the home office job when you have these two beauties in the garage.

I must be a nut for navy blue. They are not exactly the same. The 1976 Goldwing is a recent purchase and it came that way. The CX I had painted in a well documented build about 3 years ago. Collectively, the are known in this house as "the ladies".
