CX500 Cafe Racer

The Honda CX500 is an understated little motorcycle. And perfect to build our customer his Dream Bike.

The most arduous thing about this build was trying to give the customer what he had in mind with his allowable budget.

We upgraded the front end by retrofitting Yamaha front forks with the Cx’s original rim and brake setup. We modified and fitted Harley Clip-on handlebars for an edgy look.

Wayne modified the rear shocks to a Mono shock setup. To strengthen and create flow, Wayne cut and welded a lattice-style brace for the swing arm.

And we received boxes of new bespoke parts for this build a while ago. Cognito Moto and Moto gadget make top-notch aftermarket parts. Next was to make rear sets.
