    VHT Metallic Gold Engine Enamel. Good stuff, chemical resistant after you bake it in the oven for an hour. Anodized... hah! You are aware this is a CX500, right? Anodized.... next you'll be asking me if I paid for it! (Frame and motor were both free!)

    Shink 705 series, 130/80/17 front and rear. (That's a GL1100 rim mounted to my CX500 hub)

    Were the brake and shifter pedals from the bike originally or are they from a turbo?

    They're from a Turbo.



    The brake pedal is mounted to the GL500 rear brake system, which I welded to teh CX500 frame.



    shifter pedal had to be bent so it's shorter, and then mounted to an adapter so that it will fit a CX500 shaft.



    Ideally, I'd like to change the shifter linkage inside the motor and use an unmodified Turbo shifter pedal, but for now this works.

    Holy crap, that's fantastic! I love the color choice on the Pro-Link components.

    I am also planning on using the turbo shifter, hadn't mated it up yet, wasnt aware the linkages were different between the two.
