So my 1979 Honda CX 500 is (as they all are) a work in progress,

tank is bare, I just coat it with dry wax (same stuff I use on my other bikes chains) Eventually, I'll cut the seat down to a straight banana, The headlight bucket and ears are from a SOHC CB750, The bars are from a seventies triumph, who knows what else. When I got this bike, she had a king queen, top rear case (also vetter) and a windjammer. I've removed the mechanical fan (it is water cooled) and plan on mounting an electric fan when it shows up in the mail next week.

anyway.

CX500's are so damn ugly but they are great bikes...Many folks have put 70K plus on them with few if any problems. I just wish Honda would have put spoke wheels on them. I used to have an '80. I wished I still had it...

Nice use for a Sopporo can...Sopporo got me laid in Medford Oregon once...

Vetter bags, I removed the badges, top case, and windjammer fairing. All my bike have saddlebags, cause I don't own cars.
