Honda CX500 1981 project, first questions...
Fri Nov 15, 2013 7:24 pm by not a harley rider

Having eventually decided on my donor bike I'm hoping some knowledgeable folks out there can help with my initial questions

I've bought a Honda CX500 1981 bike with a 1982 CX500E (eurosport) engine. It's quite obvious that someone has already began to play with it (pretty ham fistedly) the rear of the frame has been hacked off with the seat re-fitted using an aftermarket grab rail as a …

Wed Dec 04, 2013 11:00 pm by Hondamatic

I thought I better start a project post / log so you can all share in my delight, misery, splendour & despair as I move through my first project.

Abracadabra - for my next trick, I will be changing a pig of a motorcycle into a rather stylish little cafe racer.........................hopefully.

The bike is a D reg 1987 1 owner bike with 17k miles on it. The previous owner bought another …

81 CB900c project in Virginia Beach

Hello all,
I’m new to the site but not to fabrication. Thought I would share what I have been working on, it is an 81 CB900C. I do understand that it’s a heavier bike and harder to modify. I have had the bike for some time and I wanted to do something different so I got inspiration from the café world. This is what I started with.

Thought i would post some pictures of what i have been up to with the build.
It's all at the cleaning stage at the moment, Forks have been rebuilt, and the clocks are on the go.
Found some Modern Tokico calipers from a Bandit but will require new mount's to be machined.(dont make things easy for myself)
Just aquired an amazing set of cylinders and pistons, as over size pistons are like rocking …

Cb750f 1980 what upgraded forks can I fit?
Fri Nov 22, 2013 2:37 pm by Rjudge
Hi all
Kind of new to cafe racers.
I want to upgrade the forks and calipers and open to options.
I would like to keep it all Honda but boot a major problem if not.
All I am after if anyone has put a newer fork on an old bike like this was hoping for a Cbr 600 or something like that.
Any comments would be appreciated.
Thx all

Jaymo's first cafe build - CX500
Fri Aug 02, 2013 5:46 am by Jaymo_sx
Hi guys, this is my 1979 honda cx500 I picked up from a guy who was building it into a cafe racer.
I got it at a great price as it had a running issue

First things first I looked into the running issue, I don't know much about carbs but the way the bike was running it definitely sounded fuel related. So checked air line were good then …
