So hack the tail section add some clubmans and remove the fenders and you will have made it your own. You remind me how much better the brakes were on my VFR1200f and Buel 1125R than anything I have now. Both were spectacular stoppers even with the weight of the VFR1200. However the front tire showed the extra wear due to the weight.This was delivered today. An amazing machine.
I'm sure most folks here have some skeletons in their closet. I still own this horrid thing. Great for its intended purpose, inspiring to the point where it just sat on the driveway and rotted. I was looking for a CX650E to play with, but stumbled across this for a few hundred. When I came across this site and mentioned I wanted to do something with a GL500I ( not turn it into a cafe racer whatever that is supposed to be.... to me it's something like an orphaned manx frame that had its engine robbed for a Cooper race car and some working class stiff jammed a preunit Triumph into it.), I vaigly remember Geeto giving me a kick in the nuts for showing up with another maggot. At the time I was blissfully unaware what people were doing with CX500's etc. I did a search on Google and then understood his gag reflex.Oops. Guess I'd better come clean then, I've owned 2.....There I said it.
