As it happens, a friend suckered me into this project with an IM link to this page on a 1978 honda cx500 cafe racer build. We both were very excited by the article at the time. This was about a month ago, since then I’ve done a great deal of research, reading and a bit of Craigslist hunting. I finally came across the right bike for my winter build a cafe racer project. I went and met with the owner, Aaron last night and came home with my project donor bike, 1979 CX-500. The bike runs well but needs some brake work on the mechanical side. I’m sure there will be some surprises along the way but for now, I’m really happy with my purchase.
