Honda CX500

Post  jlv58 on Fri 5 Dec - 22:44

Hello.

My name is Jean-Luc from Paris-France. I found very nice bikes on this site and I wanted to share a few of my projects.

I did this CX 2 years ago: I couldn't stand the ugly base f the original model that I used to ride every day to go to work ! No need to say that I do not go to work with it anymore

to the forum, Jean-Luc!
Very good job! The CX500 was one of my favorite bikes, before, but I would have never thought to make a cafe racer out of it. Beautifull. I love the seat.

Excellent boulot! (Ah ouais ouais, moi aussi je suis francais )

He says that he thinks the engine is cool and that he really likes your bike.

He must be a smart person Wink
