I've gone and bought this crappy CX500, with the intention of making something that looks a bit better! Hopefully the maggot won't turn into a fly!

Not only is this my first attempt at a blog! but it's also my first attempt at creating a"custom" motorcycle!! I don't really know what I'm doing in either case, so we'll see how it goes.

You'll have to look at the photo below to see why I chose the 'maggot'!.........see something good can be found in everything!!

Ramblin' on

I have sorted out the majority of the wiring runs & located the main electrical comonents in their new positions.

I  trimmed & mounted the rear mudguard & knocked up a new back light & numberplate mount from an old Lucas unit. Don't think it came out too bad!

I'm now getting to the stage where I need to paint the frame so that I can start putting it together finally!!


Picked up a replacement front brake master cylinder complete with lever for eight quid!  It has a remote resevoir & adjustable lever which is quite cool!
