    So I got down to it again this weekend. Got a nice bikelift upgrade, can't wait to get a rolling frame.

    Prepped the rims and painted one of them (they take a LOT of paint, got to get some more). I finished the model for the rearend, pretty pleased with it. Next week I will spend a day in a metal working shop where I am going to build it with the help of this guy. If its going to look anything like the model I would be very pleased. The frame is going to get prepped there too, going to cut of some tabs I won't be needing (at least, I hope).

    I also found an adress for sanding and coating the frame for a very reasonable price. When that is done, it is build up time. Still got to do the carbs (found someone who has an ultrasonic bath) and buy some stuff.

    I also went to the yearly bike show in the Netherlands, saw a nice CX500 in the custom section, got a picture in as well.

    Learned a lot about metal shaping this weekend and learned that I have a lot more to learn. Incredibly happy with the way it came out.

    We made two models (I had made the deal that I could learn the basics and also get his expertise to actually get a nice product). At a certain point we choose one (mine, because you know.. that way I can say I hammered it roughly in the right shape myself) and he added the finishing touch. We still have to do the final fitting and welding the bottom plate but coming 5 weeks I am not going to have much time to spend on the bike.

    To me it going to bring this bike to the next level. I will post pictures of the process.

    'Eager" 1979 CX500C Maroon.
    Name is derived from the sound of this engine at highway speeds.
    Like its eager to go.
    had a Horse that was "Eager"
    But didn't sound the same.
    So I called him "Duke"
