    Hey guys, I'm Trevor from Rhode Island
    Been browsing your site for a while, but never thought to register until I saw the vocal hatred for hipsters you guys have (courtesy of the "Knee Indents" post).

    Needless to say, my current bike is a 1982 Honda CX500C which is in its second stage of construction.
    The first phase was just a quick "get her to run and ready to ride" set up consisting of a Deluxe model tank, adjustable clubmans (I know, I know. they are really comfortable though), a 2-into-1 exhaust, pods, re-jet, new seat ect.

    Pics of Phase Zero:



    Phase One:
    -Note: I neglected to do rear sets in phase one. It's in the works now.





    Phase Two (in the works now) consists of cleaning up and powder coating the frame, clip-ons, new seat mount and new tail light, rear sets, and a complete re-wire among other things.

    Cx500s suck balls. I lived in Woonsocket, N. Smithfield, Barrington, and Cumberland. Too lazy to read your bio. Where exactly are you? Nobody lives in Providence but hipster poseurs.

    Oh yeah, your bike sucks. Welcome aboard.

    Actually I have been to many worse cities than Providence... I currently call Detroit-ish home.

    nothing wrong with the adjustable clubmans - they help avoid the issue that cause the discord about them here.

    where did you get that seat? oh, and welcome!

    EDIT: I see you changed to the CX gas tank that doesn't suck. Good work!

    ahah yea the CX does kind of suck... it had originally been listed as a CB500 and when i went to look at it and realized the listing was wrong the guy dropped the price waaaay too low to walk away.

    I live just south of Providence, and as much as I love the architecture and location of the city, its definitely overrun by hipsters (when you have Brown university and RISD in one city, what do you expect)

    luckily I haven't seen many hipsters on bikes yet... i think they're all gravitating toward vespas here.

    The seat was one from Air-tech (didn't have time to make one all "proper like") that I had upholstered in faux ostrich skin

    oh and heres a beer to Judeyramone, the one to initiate my brutal baptism of fire into the unforgiving site known as caferacer.net

    Welcome,
    Don't even listen to Judey, he is a whining crybaby.
    I like the CX, cause it is different. You might want to spring (pun intended) for some decent shocks and tires,
    Adjustable clubman bars are cool.

    its kind of funny actually...

    I was riding down the street in the artsy side of Prov. and i see coming towards me a group of 50 or so scooters... boy did I turn onto a side street fast!

    but yea I'm still undecided as to whether or not to keep the clubmans, heres the only pic I have of them (the most important parts at least):
