    Not many CX500E's around?

    Hi, I'm new to the forum, seems like a great place to find inspiration and get advice!

    I thought I'd share my CX500E which I bought in January.

    Havn't started any work on it yet, other than changing the bars to Renthals. Hoping to re-paint the tank, wrap the exhausts and replace the seat for a brat style in the short term. The wiring is also really messy!

    Thoughts and suggestions welcome.

    Loving the forums!

    the answer to your question - not many CX500E's around - is that they only made around 7500 of them in total.
