Looking great freed from its cage.
Just got my first beater bike. A 1979 (I believe) CX500C. A coworker of mine, who flips cars and motorcycles as side work, noticed I was on the lookout for a CX500. He ended up finding one at an insurance auction and the next day it was in my garage. Wiring has been hacked a little since it was a stolen bike and it needs a good cleaning. I was watching youtube videos and saw/heard your bike. I immediately got goosebumps. That is the absolute BEST sounding bike I have ever heard! I've owned an SV1000S and an SV650. I thought those bikes were superior in the music department, but you have proved me wrong. I was stunned when I read the exhaust cans were custom. You need to become a professional bike builder. Seriously!
Can't wait to start my first bike build. Dare I say I might start with the CBR fork. I just might end up spending a year and a half on it!
Incredible work Noah! If only my fab skills were as impeccable as yours.
1981 Honda GL500, abandoned bike that was stripped and "Left 4 Dead", pieced together and getting another run at the road. Ugly and rough around the edges, like the owner, but enthusiastic, fun, and surprisingly reliable. Its a Honda, so you know it's going to start when you hit the button.

Mate I came across this build via the youtube video. Excellent work start to finish and there's some great ideas there for others to learn from and put to use. Thanks for sharing.
Deviant 650 owner, now reformed.
Great job rebuilding that CX Noah. Talking about turning a "Ridiculous" bike into a marvelous one. Nice color scheme btw.
