    Hello everyone,
    New member here. Looking forward to spending time here learning and reaching out in the CX world to see the ins, outs, events, pics, and more. Currently have a 1981 CX500 that rebuilt into a Cafe Bike. Bought in SD. Came out of motorcycle industry in Texas 79-86. Raced and wrenched MX during that time. Saw these Cafe bikes a while ago, then the CX, and fell in love. In the process of rebuying tools needed to get dirty, make things happen, and have fun. Looking forward to riding again, and seeing others with the same ideas. Glad Im a member. Take care. Ill post some pics as soon as I figure more of this site out.

    Welcome to THE premier forum (among several great ones) for these machines. You will find everything you need to maintain, tinker with, and enjoy your new ride. The CX powerplant is one of the most robust engines ever designed. As you will see, many different folks do many different things with them. Everything from pure showroom ground up restorations (Think Mercum auction block by Larry aka LRCXed) to racing the wind in the "sands" of salt lake beds setting speed records (Think JimL)

    Take some time and review my links below, fill out your signature line with the bike details, and get a free download for the FSM.
