uncle,i enjoy making bikes look different / better and making them perform better too. That CX500 was never going to perform like i ideally would like it to. At least not with the money i had to spend on it.
Where i live, i don't have anywhere to keep my bikes so i have to rent a shop space. In order to pay the rent there, i end up having to sell bikes to afford it. This one was more or less built for that reason, to pay rent for a few months. My new rent paying bike is in the project forum, a 1969 CB450. Now this bike i wish i could hang on to because its a lovely handling bike and imo even better looking then the CX was.
I appreciate the kind words about the CX though, its nice to have others speak highly of something you have done.

Okay... This is my first post here.
This first pic is a virago done the cafe way... I just love that someone made a virago look this good!


And because I'm simply shameless, here's my baby(72 cb750) a few months ago...

I just finished putting together my 1970 CL350, I got a lot of ideas off of this thread so I thought I would add some pics of my bike.
