Low and Mean CX500

We just built this cafe racer which we call Low and Mean from a beat up '78 Honda CX500. It has a ton of unique parts that were all hand made by us.

It's fine

It's horses for courses here, not everyone likes or even remembers the old CX500 but some do remember it very fondly. I despatched one for a while and it served me very well and my knees were kept warm enough tucked in behind the cylinder heads. Would I buy another? Maybe because I like V twins, though I think I'd rather have a Moto Guzzi.

Looks Superb !

I think most people that have owned one ....or in my case 3......will appreciate just what a great tool they were . I also think that every owner will admit that they were bloody ugly in their original state. I despatch rode all mine and covered in excess of 120,000 relatively trouble-free miles on all of them ,and i have loved the v-twin throb ever since !
