Been researching here for the past year but not posting. New to motorcycles just taught myself to ride a few years ago. Started out learning to ride dirtbikes, picked it up pretty fast. Then somewhere on the internet I saw some pictures of Tossa R vintage Honda builds and this changed everything for me. Jumped in head first and I currently have 2 builds going, no license endorsement yet lol.

Here is my project CX500. It was a barn find from a rural area, hadn't run in 10 years. Complete mess when I bought it and boxes of parts.

And here is the CX650 project I’m almost done with. Here is photo when I bought it. I basically bought for the Cognito front end and spoke wheels. It needed a complete rewire and a little TLC. I found a CX500 Eurosport gas tank in Germany, and changed the tank and seat lines considerably.
Condition as bought:

Currently how the bike looks now: (literally took the photo today, still working on a few things, pipe wrap and cleaning up the tank emblem)
